Delta Trims Back Memphis Flights

Delta will be cutting back on flights through Memphis as part of a move to improve profitability. In the past the airline had as many as 200 daily flights through the hub which ranks 59th nationally, the smallest of any hub of any airline. Lately, Delta ran 92 daily flights through Memphis International. Later this year cuts will reduce that number to between 60 and 64 flights daily. As currently scheduled the airline will no longer fly from Memphis to Ft. Lauderdale, Omaha, St. Louis, Fayetteville, Little Rock, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Shreveport, Jacksonville, Baton Rouge, Knoxville, Nashville and Louisville. Also cut are 230 customer service and Delta Cargo positions. The cuts have been approaching as Delta shifts away from smaller less-efficient aircraft and the regional markets they serve.
