Delta reduces Dubai flights

Delta Airlines has disclosed that due to low yields, it will be reducing its services into Dubai effective 01OCT15 as despite seeing above 80% seat factor on its Atlanta-Dubai nonstop service, the service realizes a big loss. DL is unjustifiably blaming the GCC carriers for this when it has a monopoly position on this route but fails to acknowledge the extreme low pricing tactics of TK, OS, LH, KL and RJ from USA to DXB which in turn hurt its bottom line even more. 

Effective 01OCT15, DL will henceforth be reducing ATL-DXB from current daily nonstop to 4 weekly only using a B777-200LR exclusively.
