Delta to fly non stop to Mumbai

Delta announced yesterday its return to non-stop Mumbai flights later this year, most likely from JFK.

The airline says now the ME3 issue is settled they feel comfortable to return.

This and the accompanying statement blamed the ME3 for their withdrawal three years ago, and thanking the administration for resolving it. Resolving what?

Nothing has changed. The ME3 are still competition on the route, nobody has given up anything and there is universal agreement the deal with the ME3 was nothing more than a face saving exercise for all parties involved. It achieved nothing and changed nothing.

At best Delta is using the worthless piece of paper as cover for its own stupidity.
