Delta announces new flying schedule out of LaGuardia, targeting competitors
NEW YORK (AP) ' Delta Air Lines Inc. is boosting its flying out of New York's LaGuardia airport, adding routes that target American Airlines and put it in a better position to compete against United.
Delta says the additions make it the biggest airline between the New York area and cities in the U.S. That should help it grab more business travelers.
The list of added cities reads like a map of the hubs of competing airlines. Delta is adding Miami and Dallas, which are both American Airlines hubs. It will also fly to Houston and Denver, which are both United hubs, and Charlotte, which is a hub for US Airways.
Delta obtained the new flying rights in a deal with US Airways Group Inc.
