Delta has announced new flights to Aspen and a new shuttle service between Los Angeles and San Francisco.
New Flight To Aspen
The new nonstop seasonal service will include daily flights from Atlanta and one day a week (Saturday) from Minneapolis-St. Paul. These flights will be operated by a two-class CRJ-700 with 9 First Class seats and 8 Economy Comfort seats and 48 Economy seats.
The flights from Atlanta start on December 21, 2013 and end on March 30, 2014 while the flights from Minneapolis start on December 21, 2013 and end on March 29, 2014.

The flights will be operated by a E-175 plane with 12 First Class seats, 12 Economy Comfort seats and 52 Economy seats.
Customers flying the Delta Shuttle between Los Angeles and San Francisco will enjoy:

Aspen is a gorgeous city for both winter and summer fun and home to the lovely but wildly overpriced St. Regis Aspen Resort.
