  1. As an MCO hostage, I concur that this is welcome news. Before the pandemic, Delta offered Amsterdam and São Paolo international service on 767-400s with the international cabin.

    I expect that the easing of border restrictions will return enough demand for the winter season to see these two non-stop routes restored soon.
