Delta to drop Detroit-Hong Kong service

26 Jun 2012

As part of its network rationalisation strategy, Delta Airlines has announced it will drop the underperforming Detroit-Hong Kong route from August 29 onwards. 

“Due to persistently high jet fuel prices and fluctuations in passenger demand, Delta is suspending its non-stop service between Hong Kong and Detroit,” stated the carrier, which is in the midst of reducing overall capacity across its network by almost 4 per cent this year in order to align supply closer with demand.

Passengers with bookings on this route after August 29 will be reaccommodated on other Delta flights.

Fortunately, despite dropping this service, passengers can continue to travel between Detroit and Hong Kong via the carrier’s hub at Tokyo Narita.
