Update please on delta flights discontinuations??
It seems Delta is pulling out of :
sdq-jfk as planned for sept 12. I was wondering if there is going to be any changes to these discontinuations? You think they will extend the flights for a bit longer?
i am surprised that pop-atl will also bite the dust.
wow so no more direct flights to DR via JFK? this is terrible....
i'm still flying Delta to and from at the end of this month [august] and fortunately make it back to NY before they pull the plug on JFK! this is sad...
here is what I have researched.
Puerto plata - Atlanta route will be reestablished December 20th, daily flight
Santiago-Atlanta will start December 20th, daily flight
Seems like the flights to and from jfk will be discontinued from sept. 12th.
Here the story of Delta operations to DR
Delta to discontinue JFK/SDQ AND STI FROM SEPTEMBER 12

Northwest Is Pulling Out There Seasonal Services From Punta Cana
Delta is losing when they fly from jfk. they are not making money from jfk - dominican republic routes. Operational costs are way too high. They seem to do ok, cost wise, from atlanta hub to dominican republic.

p.s. speaking of atlanta: Ezequiel, have you eaten hot wings at wild wing cafe in marietta (roswell road). Yummmy yum yum. Tuesdays (after 6pm), buy one dozen and get the other dozen free. 1 hour wait usually to get a table.
AZB, i can understand if they are losing money when flying from JFK from a financial perspective i can somewhat understand them having to cut a lot of destinations. but given the number of dominicans and people that travel to DR from JFK i am sure outnumber the number of people to and from Atlanta. i'm glad it works for you since you have reasons for going to ATL. it makes sense for them since Delta is also based inATL....too bad that the airline industry on a whole is losing just about everywhere....stinks
