Lol. The 3 people that are there and can finally take a day off deserve it.
Not much else will change. Perhaps now the 31-hr waits will be 62?

They noted at the shareholders meeting today they are recalling 2000 res agents on leave in June and July.

I'm hoping that they'll get IT to get up to speed this time. According to the phone agent I finally talked to last month virtually all of the issues were IT system related including the call back fiasco. It will interesting to see what the dodge was used at the shareholders meeting today(assuming Ed even let it come up).

AA via CLT with a shorter layover and better times was half that for confirmed F or $168 for Y. Yet again I'm booking a trip where I'm on other airlines.
Actually, you can drive to Jacksonville instead of flying. Flying is very expensive and long layover. That's not good! You can drive in your car. It's very easy ride. You can take on I-95.

Deltamatic just kicking this airlines ... during this pandemic. Complete disgrace of a IT performance especially on delta.dumb. Cripe nwa.com has been gone for a decade and it was far more usable with refunds, changes, et all than DAL's own web site is right now.

Delta.com is so dysfunctional that they've now inadvertently canceled out the ability to cancel a ticket for a refund within 24 hours. Now getting a simple error with a message to call. Yeah right.

The number of flights is up significantly over June and July.

Looking at DTW departures per day:

June - 130
July - 198
August - 288
Peak summer 2019 was 461 flights.

So a lot of frequency/connectivity is coming back. I didn't look at the other hubs, but if DTW is effectively doubling the number of flights between June and August, I'd imagine similar at MSP & SLC if not more in ATL.
Weird. SEA-CMH/DFW still show up on the map but no flights are loaded for that route.

Its because they have not pulled down the pre-COVID schedule in September any beyond thus there is likely still flights on those routes.

If you go into flights and plug in dates in August you can see what is operating nonstop and the number of flights.

I would say yes...just tried to book a flight to Portland or Bangor Maine out of GSP..departing 6/24 returning on 6/26 and there was nothing available on Delta.

This is a work trip made thru BCD. Taking United up to Bangor and returning on AA.

Thanks Delta!

There's no flights showing for CMH/DFW-SEA through end of schedule on delta.com. Looks like they were pulled back in April -- https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1445235

I can't get anything to pull up using the route map from CMH other than ATL, which makes no sense because a thread on A.net indicated CMH-DTW was going to 5x/day.

Just booked SLC-ATL-SBN with the new August schedule and unlike June and sometimes in July, there were actually plenty of options!

Of course whether those will survive the next six-ten weeks is a big if still

change outbound flight for CDG on AF booked thru Delta

The Delta website goes thru the motions when allowing me to select a date change for my outbound flight, but when I click on the new flight, the site kicks back to the "select flights to change" page. What gives with Delta's site - is it that horrible? No way can I reach an agent by phone. Recording eventually states Delta is not taking calls, and hangs up on me. Unreal.
