I would love PDX>LAS since thatís 75% of my travel every year. Alaska has gone down hill and terrible for east coast travel, so Iím okay with connecting through SEA/LAX/SLC.

I did however notice that DL has added this route for this week, Iím assuming due to CES. Hope my upgrade clears.

This may have been posted earlier, but I stumbled upon the fact that DL has posted flying E75s on BOS-ORD starting 9/9 (plus a single positioning flight on 9/8). 5x/week Mon-Fri, 3x Sat, 4x Sun.

Same here! (NW 2731 on Feb. 22, 2009, to be precise - my last NW flight as they were integrated with DL shortly thereafter).

We were late inbound, but I got to the gate and saw that boarding hadnít yet begun, and decided I had time to go to the restroom. I returned barely 3 minutes later and found the gate area empty, and the agent saying he was just about to close the door - Iím usually on mainline, so I guess it didnít occur to me it doesnít take long to board 7 passengers.

BOS to Asia - though KE appears to be starting ICN in April.

After four years of seasonal service, nonstop JFK to SJD appears to be cancelled for next winter. Any chance that this Cabo flight gets added in a few months, or if it isn't on the schedule now for December 2019, forget about it? Thanks

Doesn't really fit the thread, but I wish for a LGA(or any NYC) to LEX that arrives at a reasonable hour. The one LGA-LEX nonstop per day gets in at midnight.

It's possible, but for routes like that it's much more likely that they would be added at the beginning of the booking window and then cancelled later if advanced bookings weren't looking good.

I'd say to many markets in Mexico are going to start flowing through MEX on AM, other than CUN which has a near bottomless demand during the winter and spring from the US. I say this as it's already snowed 6 inches outside my window and has not signs of stopping!

As far as I know DL does not fly direct ATL to ATH, or maybe only in summer. I'd love to take several trips to Greek islands (like in May or Sept.) but not being able to get direct to ATH, it makes it difficult.

I’d love to see Delta establish a secondary hub for the south somewhere in florida. Orlando is the logical choice, but frankly PBI would be preferable.

MSP-BTV on an A220. That would change my life plans.

As opposed to having a hub for the south in some southern city such as Atlanta?

I vaguely recall they have done this in the past: seasonal service ATL-ATH. I guess they've given this over to AF. But I think JFK-ATH is year-around?
