In a sign that maybe (just possibly) leisure travel is starting to slow down, Delta announced today that it is ending plans for six long-haul routes that were on the schedule for the winter 2023-2024 season.
Delta will end the following flights in October:
- Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) to Dusseldorf International Airport (DUS)
- Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) to Stuttgart Airport (STR)
- John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER)
- John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Copenhagen Kastrup Airport (CPH)
- John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Geneva Cointrin Airport (GVA)
- John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN)
Delta released a statement that read:
Delta is making routine adjustments in six transatlantic markets from Atlanta and New York-JFK as the demand environment for winter travel becomes more clear. These markets will shift to seasonal service.”
Just two months ago, Delta announced that it was shifting the JFK to Geneva and Berlin routes from seasonal to year round. Now that change is being rolled back.
Anthony’s Take: It will be interesting to see how many other routes are suspended or cancelled in the next few months across airlines. The demand for leisure travel had to end at some point and it seems like it’s starting to soften in the generally slower winter season.
