Skyteam Transatlantic Network Reconfigures Departures From London-Heathrow

The four SkyTeam airlines—Air France, Delta, KLM and Northwest—are reconfiguring their transatlantic services from London to U.S. hubs.

The Air France service from London Heathrow to Los Angeles will be removed from the 2008-09 winter schedule. The resources freed up (aircrafts, slots) will be used to reinforce the London Heathrow-New York JFK service with flights increased from two to three flights a day for the Summer 2009 schedule; two operated by Delta and one by Air France.

At the same time, Delta will offer its new full-flat seats in Business Class on London Heathrow-New York JFK flights.

The transatlantic services of the four airlines is supplemented by flights to and from Delta’s Atlanta hub, Northwest’s Detroit and Minneapolis hubs, as well as Seattle, the gateway to the West Coast of the U.S.
