    Will be interesting to see how this works out for DL and AA. Delta has the advantage of partners that can provide feed out of Beijing (although the biggest carrier there, Air China, is partnered with United) while AA has smaller aircraft (787, in addition to the 777 that Delta is putting on this route) so potentially a lower threshold for profitability on the route.
