Delta is not new to Love Field: Southwest Airlines has long-dominated Dallas’ “other” airport, but its founder Herb Kelleher was only a small boy when this was taken in 1939.
- Delta Air Lines launched two new domestic routes on 5 September, both of which are operated by ExpressJet with regional aircraft. From the airline’s main hub in Atlanta, GA (ATL), it now operates 32 weekly flights to Dallas Love Field, TX (DAL), complementing its 79 flights a week to Dallas/Fort Worth – an airport pair where it also faces competition from American Airlines and Spirit. The 1,160-kilometre route is operated with 50-seat CRJ200s. The same day, Delta connected Minneapolis/St Paul, MN (MSP) with Syracuse, NY (SYR). Flights operate daily with 65-seat CRJ700 aircraft, complementing the airline’s existing four services to Syracuse from Detroit, New York LGA, Atlanta and New York JFK. The last time the route was operated was under the name of Delta’s predecessor Northwest, which flew between 2004 and 2005.
