Delta Flight Cuts

Not enough nurses, too fewer flights, and one more month, in fact, to take advantage of Delta's direct flights to New York's JFK and to Cincinnati.

The cash strapped airline is cancelling its non-stop services to those airports beginning December 1.

Tallahassee Regional reps say it's part of Delta's strategy to de-emphasize domestic flights and eliminate less profitable routes. They say the New York route did not pick up as hoped.

Philip Inglese, Assistant Director of Aviation, says, "The positive side is we're really not losing service to New York and Cincinnati, part of Delta's strategy they feel they can serve those two markets through the Atlanta market."

He says Delta will be changing its mix of planes to some bigger aircrafts, adding seats to the Atlanta market. Continental will pick up the West Palm market next month.
