As if the writing wasn’t on the wall, Delta’s CFO referenced in a March 4 presentation that Delta plans to turn Seattle into a domestic hub city.

But the buildup goes beyond that. In a March 4 presentation at the Raymond James Financial Institutional Investors Conference, CFO Paul Jacobson referenced Delta’s plans to turn Seattle not just into an international gateway, but also the H-word: a hub.

Will be interesting to see how this plays out in the near future.

  1. As long as AS keeps earning based on miles flown they’ll be a good competition for DL and can remind ppl in commercials that low ultra cheap DL fare from SEA-MIA (or where ever) may only earn the passenger 1,000 frequent flyer miles or what will take 25 flights to earn a free ticket, while AS will award 4,000 miles or a free ticket in only about 6 r/t’s… That would sell me as a Kayaker on AS

  2. Not thrilled about this encroachment. But on a positive note, I have very much taken advantage of the double EQM destinations AS is offering right now.

    I really don’t see AS going revenue based any time soon…

  3. @Scott – for the majority of travelers, six 4K RTs would likely take 3(+) years – that’s a long time to tie up cash, I’d think they’d take the cheapest fare. And as a business traveler, my company doesn’t care at all about my free trips (unless I use them for business, which at least so far i don’t have to) – the lowest fare wins there, too.

    Certainly tightly targeted ads might work…
