I guess I'm left wondering, why does Delta run 757's from Atlanta to Savannah, Charleston, Jacksonville, Louisville, and Raleigh-Durham? I find it hard to believe that they are running full all the time unless they've cut the actual number of flights per day to these cities. Although, in fairness, I can remember when i was stationed in Savannah, Delta ran a DC-8 between Savannah and Atlanta. Just seems like a waste of resources and unnecessary cycles on aircraft that aren't getting any younger. The table is in the article and give frequency as well. It's not all day every day, nor every day for that matter, but just odd.
What's the point of an open door policy if inside the open door sits a closed mind?
