Delta dropping 2 routes that Amtrak serves
Posted by blue streak 1 on Sunday, December 12, 2021 9:25 PM

Just announced as Amtrak is going to 3  / week?

You’ll find the full list of route cuts below, as first seen in Cirium schedules and later confirmed by a carrier spokesperson.

Origin Destination Notes
Detroit (DTW) La Crosse, Wisconsin (LSE)
Minneapolis–Saint Paul (MSP) Great Falls, Montana (GTF)
Minneapolis–Saint Paul (MSP) Lincoln, Nebraska (LNK) Market exit
Minneapolis–Saint Paul (MSP) Marquette County, Michigan (MQT)
Salt Lake City (SLC) Cody, Wyoming (COD) Market exit
Salt Lake City (SLC) Grand Junction, Colorado (GJT) Market exit
Salt Lake City (SLC) Indianapolis, Indiana (IND)

The headline is that three small U.S. cities are losing Delta service entirely. Flights to Grand Junction (GJT) and Lincoln (LNK) will end on Jan. 9, 2022, while seasonal service to Cody (COD) has been suspended since October 2021.

A carrier spokesperson shared the following statement confirming the move.

Due to ongoing travel demand impact from the pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to suspend Delta Connection service to these markets. We are working to reaccommodate customers with alternate plans or offer refunds as quickly as possible. We are grateful to all who supported this service throughout the years.

SLC-GJT is one obvious Amtrak route.  What is the second ATK route you are thinking of, as they serve 3 of the other city pairs with a change in CHI?  DTW-LSE seems the most likely.
