Delta Air Lines Opposing Everyone Requesting US-Cuba Routes

Excerpt From Delta Air Lines Filing With United States Department Of Transportation

“We understand that 21 weekly round-trip frequencies to Havana will become available following Frontier’s and Spirit’s termination of their current U.S.-Havana service. As of today, American, Delta, FedEx, JetBlue, Southwest, and United have filed applications requesting a total of over 35 weekly frequencies. Delta objects to the applications filed by American, FedEx, JetBlue, Southwest, and United to the extent that any grant to them would preclude Delta’s own application for seven weekly frequencies to provide additional service on the Miami-Havana route. Although Delta believes that its proposal would provide superior public benefits to the other proposals, in light of the competing applications and responsive pleadings filed, we would support a decision by the Department to institute a frequency allocation proceeding in this matter.”
