I was scheduling a flight from Chicago to Bangkok, and I noticed that one of the segments on Delta was Minneapolis to Tokyo! The flight is operated on a Boeing 777, which I can’t seem how makes a profit since there can’t be such a large market in Minnesota. It surprises me more given how few 777s Delta has and how they usually operate the A330 on USA-Asia routes. Do you think the Minneapolis to Tokyo route is profitable for Delta?
@ Kyle — Tough to say. My guess is that they have a lot of connecting traffic on the route. I agree it’s quite random.
