Is DL under serving JFK/SFO business?

Post by jamesbowers » Thu Jun 13, 2019 9:14 am

I'm a DL flyer and going to SFO for a business trip in October. To my surprise, all business class on direct flights between JFK - SFO are sold out on DL. I even looked into 3Q/4Q of this year, 90% of the flights have their business cabins sold out. DL flies 757 with 16 D1 seats

Meanwhile, AA has plenty of C seats on their A321s on the same dates. They're using A321s with 20 C and 10F seats (Didn't search for F seats so not sure about their LF)

While AS also provide direct service between JFK/SFO, they do not have lie-flat seats.

Is DL underserving JFK/SFO route? Obviously, UA has EWR-SFO all wrapped up, but JFK-SFO still represents a significant market that DL can capitalize on - especially if their C cabins are consistently sold out. Does anyone have info on the premium cabin LFs for DL and AA?

Hi James, Welcome to WARSUG.

Unfortunately the sales practices of US based carriers is a bit outside the scope of this forum, being based around Radio use in Western Australia.

If you have any questions or discussion on any Australian Carriers however we're happy to talk.
