When it comes to Delta’s operation in Seattle, it seems like they are always expanding with their flights, and today’s latest announcement is no less. Delta is planning to add non-stop service between Seattle and Kona as well as some new seasonal flights.

The new and increased Seattle service will operate as follows:

  • One daily flight to Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii beginning Dec. 19, 2015
  • One additional daily flight to Palm Springs, Calif., for a total of two daily seasonal flights beginning Dec. 19, 2015
  • One daily seasonal flight to Tucson, Ariz., which was previously Saturday service, beginning Dec. 19, 2015
  • Extension of seasonal service to daily year-round service to Fairbanks and Juneau, Alaska, beginning May 15, 2015

Delta explains that, service to Kona will be operated with Boeing 757-200 aircraft. Fairbanks, Juneau and Puerto Vallarta will use Boeing 737-800 aircraft, while Los Cabos will use Airbus A319 aircraft.

  1. Delta treats their partners just as well as they do Skymiles members. If they start SEA-ICN as well, they can actually screw over not just one, but two allies in one fell swoop. Impressive.

  2. Bring it on! If DL thinks they can compete with AS they are flat out wrong. The AS mileage plan beats the DL Skyruble plan hands down. It looks like more double mile earnings for AS members coming down the road. I know where my award chart is, do you?

  3. Haha…they can have all the routes they want, but they will never have the customer service/FF plan of Alaska. Which, IMO, will help AS weather the storm!
