Grand total of eight people on the early AM CVG-EWR leg yesterday. It's often a light load but this was ridiculous. Six in FC and 2 in Y/C+ on a CR9.

Thoroughly enjoyed the DTW-ICN special meal in July 2016. It's catered by a local Korean restaurant and is very good - far above the usual intercontinental fare. I have no ex-ICN experience.

Following this thread with interest as will be at SVO for the first time next year on DL/SU. Does DL have staff at SVO year-round considering JFK-SVO on DL metal is only seasonal?

With navigational deviations due to weather, MSP-CVG took 2h 23min on a CR2 a couple of weeks ago. Brutal. At least there is a mix of -900s on the route too.
