In scheduling my quarterly trip from Ohio to the Pacific Northwest, I need to fly KDTW-KPDX on the outbound leg for the first time in about four years. I was very surprised to find that DL doesn’t currently fly this route (the occasional trip launched from KDTW in the past couple of years has seen me going to KSEA or KGEG on the first leg). This used to be a solid route for NWA - was this a recent development, and if so, are changes coming to KDTW with the onset of the KLGA hub operation?
From the old thread about Delta (which descended into name-calling and is best left alone), what’s the status of the DL hub operation at KCVG with Comair’s demise? The general party line was that other operators would step in to fly the Comair routes, but did the net result see any additional reductions in DL service?
Looks as if KMEM is holding steady - could be wrong, however.
Does DL have any significant penalties or TIF suspensions at KCVG/KMEM if they don’t maintain a minimum number of flights at either location over a specified period?
