Comair to suspend operations on 29-Sep-2012

Comair announced (27-Jul-2012) it will cease all operations on 29-Sep-2012. Delta Air Lines SVP of Delta Connection Don Bornhorst said, “While regional flying has and will remain a key component of Delta's network, customer expectations and the unit costs of regional flying have evolved. In response, Delta recently announced its plans to reduce the total number of regional jets in its network while adding more mainline flying. This includes reducing the number of 50-seat regional jets from nearly 350 aircraft to 125 or fewer in the upcoming years. As a result of this reduction and changes to its customer-focused business strategy, Delta has made the difficult decision to cease Comair's operations." [more - original PR]
