Delta will face fierce competition from its main competitor at Seattle, Alaska Airlines.  Delta Airlines will fly against Alaska to Columbus, Ohio, and American Airlines and Alaska Airlines to Dallas, Texas.  Alaska and American have a proposed expanded codeshare for the west coast contesting Delta. Also, American Airlines launched flights to India and London from Seattle to supplement Alaska.  Additionally, Alaska Airlines will be joining Oneworld.


Also, Delta will be adding more frequency for flights to Austin and Orlando from its hub in Seattle.  The carrier is scheduled to launch flights to Tampa and end flights to Kansas City. Currently, Delta operates flights to Amsterdam and Paris in Europe and Beijing, Seoul, Shanghai, and Tokyo in Asia.  However, flights to Beijing and Shanghai are currently suspended and flights to Seoul have decreased frequency due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.

The routes will be operated on the A220-100 showcasing 109 seats.  It is heavily touted for its great design like a window in the lavatory.  It has 12 business seats in a 2-2 configuration, 15 premium economy seats in a 2-3 configuration, and 82 economy seats in a 2-3 configuration.


What are your thoughts on the new routes?  How will Alaska Airlines respond to the news?  Leave your thoughts in the comments below!!
