Delta Air Lines is trimming its flights to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) and upgauging the aircraft used on flights from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) this winter. The carrier will also be suspending its service between London Gatwick Airport (LGW) and New York John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) this winter.

As I wrote about last month, Air France will begin flying to Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) on October 30th after Delta cedes the route (more here). Ishrion Aviation is reporting that the Atlanta-based carrier will also be cutting back the frequency on some of its other flights to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG). These include:

  • Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) will drop from daily to 5x weekly in January and February with flights on Mondays. Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
  • Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) will be reduced from daily to 4x weekly during on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays in November and December. It drops to 3x weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays in January.
  • Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) will also see flights reduced from daily to 5x weekly in January and February. These will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Flights between Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) will see the aircraft used to fly this route upgauged from a Boeing 767 to an Airbus A330-300 on January 10th.

Delta’s newish flights between London Gatwick Airport (LGW) and New York John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) will be suspended for the winter between October 29th and March 29th.

Anthony’s Take: Seasonality and a slight chill in demand for transatlantic flights is making Delta adjust its winter schedule to Europe. We’ll see what other airlines announce as they right-size their schedules.
