This shouldn't even be a question!!!! Delta is doomed already just look at Philadelphia and how fast that went downhill. What is going to be different??

I think there is a fair chance that Delta will change its mind and never fly one flight out of ORH. I think after seeing the load factors on the JFK flight at 50% and AA cutting back after only a short period why wouldn't they?

The fact is that Massport is just another hackerama that doesn't give a damn about ORH. I'm beginning to think that the people who run it couldn't find an airport if they landed in one. They really pulled the wool over everyone's eyes when they bought the airport from the city and invested well North of $100 million of upgrades. Not surprised to see that money was probably wasted. It's not the first time a MA state agency has wasted money and it certainly won't be the last time either. I would gladly use the airport again if there were flights to leisure destinations other than what we currently have (Florida Gulf Coast, West Palm Beach, Myrtle Beach). Although Direct Air wasn't the greatest airline, we frequently flew out of ORH to West Palm Beach and the flights were always full from what I recall. Nonstop ORH to West Palm for $150 +/-. That was an unbelievable deal and in retrospect probably contributed to the downfall of Direct Air. I would have gladly paid a little more for the convenience of the airport and the nonstop flights. So here we are. My guess is that Delta either delays the start of service or pulls out completely. One thing is for sure, Massport won't care one way or the other.

I agree as well. Rumor on the hill is Massport didn’t know about American cutting flights at ORH until they read it in the news. Their comments in the telegram article seem to back it up too. So, so embarrassing. There is nothing to feel good about at the airport right now. No, all you people who have drank the cool aid, forced service is not better than no service. These flights are failing miserably. Hoping that turns around soon.

I don't know how much more evidence we need to come to the conclusion that Mr. Davis is not qualified to run our airport He and his team of $100,000+ a year managers refuse to get their agency to market the airport and its flights. The fact they were blindsided by the AA cutbacks shows just how out of out of touch they are. It's time to shake things up before ORH becomes one big solar farm.
