Timetable of Delta’s new long-haul routes

LAX — PPT 11:10 a.m. — 6:10 p.m.

PPT — LAX 8:10 p.m. — 6:40 a.m. (+1)

ATL — CPT 8:50 p.m. — 6:15 p.m. (+1)

Yes, and sadly only on a 737 so no lie-flat.

MIA-LAX is actually a resumption of service. I’m pretty sure DL flew that route and dropped it right before COVID.

I am so surprised that ATL-TLV is back! It’s been more than a decade now. Last time they flew ATL-TLV in 2011. The flight schedule is perfect timing for you. The flight is departing at 2pm from ATL and will arrived in TLV at 9:15am. Return flight to ATL at 11:30am and will arrived in ATL at 5:55pm. It is daytime flight.

Dropped in 2018 and it was less than daily.

Hard to compete against AA and at least 1 if not multiple 777s daily. Not sure of point of route.

Doesn't AF already fly LAX-PPT?

I think DL is banking on the traffic provided from its JV with LA to make this a viable route.

Why not atl-ppt? No competition, much better connectivity for east coast.

Still gotta fly westbound anyway?

Too expensive to operate. Ultralong segments require a lot of fuel to carry the weight of all the fuel they need.
