Anyone have any idea what Delta's long term plans are for CHQ including Shuttle America in SLC?

Aren't they making runs into Mexico out of SLC using the E-Jet?

No one really knows what the future may hold for any of us.
With Delta filing Chapter 11 things are a little uncertain with the E145/E135 flying for Delta. As far as we know, SLC will continue to grow as it is doing now. I don't think that we'll stop flying the E145/E135 for Delta during this time of Hardship; but, with Mesa in the mix out of Florida as well, flying is sure to be reduced.

We can only hope for the best for everyone in the industry.

I've been wondering about Freedom's effect on CHQ's operation in MCO. So far we're supposed to keep flying there, but we may be close to the chopping block with the system-wide reduction in flying and such. GSO is being pared down while JFK is increasing a bit, and we all know CVG is taking a dive. If DAL mgmt is so against proliferating 40-50 seat flying, I just wonder what the true rationale was for bringing Freedom into the mix in MCO. Whipsaw you guys? BK will take care of us; I guess DAL needed some outside entity to act upon you guys. What a mess!!
