But, Delta will be retiring its B744s soon... how many B777s will take their place? I mean, it acquired that aircraft from Northwest, and has been in use for decades.

Expect Delta's retaliation tomorrow where they upgrade all those cities or increase frequencies or lower the price of tickets because they wont go quietly with Spirit trying to come in to their home turf.

Spirit (and Frontier Airlines as well) is not much of a threat to Delta's operations since they cater to different markets. I don't foresee Delta chasing them out of Atlanta anytime soon.

Delta is going to fly nonstop from Atlanta to Medellin and Cartagena in Colombia beginning in December, 19.

DELTA LAUNCHES TWO ROUTES CONNECTING ATLANTA TO MEDELLIN AND CARTAGENA

Quote:
ATLANTA, April 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) will continue expanding its network in Latin America with service from its largest hub in Atlanta to Medellin and Cartagena, Colombia starting Dec. 19, 2015. The flights are now for sale on delta.com.

"Delta wants to be the best U.S. airline in Latin America by providing a comprehensive route network that meets our customers' needs, whether they want to relax by the beach or do business around the world," said Nicolas Ferri, Delta's vice president for Latin America and the Caribbean. "Our new routes in Colombia are the latest in a series of enhancements and a sign of our steadfast commitment to our customers in Latin America and the Caribbean."

Subject to government approval, the new flights complement Delta's nonstop service from Bogota to Atlanta and New York. The new ATL-MDE route will operate using 124-seat Boeing 737-700 aircraft, and the ATL-CTG service will operate using 160-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

The route between Atlanta and Medellin will provide customers one-stop access to more than 200 destinations from Delta's largest hub, including key business destinations in Europe like London, Madrid, Paris and more. The Atlanta-Cartagena route presents customers with access to the Colombian Caribbean and its unique coastal cities.

Customers traveling to and from Medellin and Cartagena will benefit from an enhanced experience at the Maynard H. Jackson International Terminal at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, which features full Spanish signage throughout the airport. From the state-of-the-art terminal, travelers have access to Delta's more than 900 peak-day flights, including nonstop service to 62 international destinations.

One thing that the master plan introduced last fall doesn't seem to address is landside transportation from the international terminal. I personally think the ATL SkyTrain should be extended around the south side of the airport to link to the international terminal.

Considering this project will be adding more natural light to the domestic terminal and concourses, I wonder if windows will be added to the ends of the concourses. I'm not sure whose dumb idea it was not to put windows at the ends of the concourses; they currently feature a blank wall.

Delta pulled out of BOM because the loads sucked and werent making any money and also the world economic recession was taking place and fuel prices were spiking. Delta has a flight to DXB so passengers can connect on Emirates massive India network for a flight to BOM.

Wow! I didn't even know that. The loads is so terrible. That's why they were pulled out of ATL-BOM.

The Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in the US has announced plans to start the screening of its staff at a new security checkpoint in the domestic terminal by the end of this month.

The three-lane checkpoint will screen workers before giving them access to secure areas in the airport premises.
