Hey man is that on the 50 or the 70?
I would love to know more about this. Is there an MCO overnight in our future?

Comair back to DFW also

Looks like Comair does 3x a day CVG-DFW starting 12/01.

About time these geniuses figured out that DFW is where its at!!! This whole mess really started heading downhill fast when they pulled us out of there.

You can't be serious. DFW was a hole in North Texas that DAL has been throwing money into for years.

Don't get excited...Comair's flights replace mainline's (reduction in capacity).

what is so good about dfw overnights? what's to do there? I like the IAH overnights better.
For the several hundred ex DFW based crew members who still live there, I'd say there's lots to do there.

Sounds like the new Freedom (Mesa) routes. At least MCO-OKC and TUL.

How are we going to route the planes to MCO? Is it thru OKC & TUL? I couldn't find these routes in Travelnet but did find the CVG-DFW's on Comair.

This sounds like more CHQ routes out of MCO since they have a base there. Would be nice though...:cool:

And what hub does delta have that they havent been throwing money into?
And what hub does delta have that theyve been making money at?

DFW was the perfect location. Centrally located, 7 runways (where you can shoot 4 simultaneous ils approaches), predominately good wx year round, you can find good gate and ramp people, a growing economy, and the list goes on and on.

But I guess delta likes to throw all there flying into one great big basket. "we shall live by Atlanta and we shall die by Atlanta".

whatever

According to our pres. at the shuttin' down announcement, DFW lost 900M from 2001 till closing. That would have made it one of the LEAST losing hubs. The mistake after the Apr 03 was not upgrading the consistently over-sold CRJ routes to MD-80s. Such as MCI with 6 CRJs always over sold. One or two could have been upgraded.

A lot
What about them replacing the hourly RJ service from SLC to PHX and now having only 4 MD90s? (Dec schedule) Is that a good way to do it?
