Memphis is really, really not a Delta hub anymore

Want to fly on Delta from Memphis? Better hope you’re heading to one of the carrier’s hub airports. And it is probably safe to say that Memphis is no longer one of those hubs.

The cuts will leave Delta with daily year-round nonstop service to just six destinations: Atlanta, Cincinnati, Detroit, Los Angeles, Minneapolis/St. Paul and New York LaGuardia. Beyond those, Delta will still fly from Memphis to another four markets with a mix of seasonal or less-than-daily service. Delta’s Memphis-Orlando service will be downgraded from daily service to Saturday-only, according to The Commercial Appealof Memphis. Delta will offer seasonal service from Memphis to Cancun, Las Vegas and Salt Lake City.

Most of the cuts are being attributed to Delta’s cut in 50-seat aircraft due to pilot shortages and the company’s general plan to cut those aircraft out of the fleet. The latest cuts will see Delta down to about 25 daily flights from a peak of 240ish before the merger.
