Delta Air Lines has made this announcement:

Beginning this fall, customers in Los Angeles and Omaha will have more travel options between the two cities as Delta launches new daily service from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Omaha’s Eppley Airfield (OMA) on Nov. 10.

The daily flight will operate on the following schedule:

Departs Arrives
Los Angeles (LAX) at 5:40 p.m. Omaha (OMA) at 10:55 p.m.
Omaha (OMA) at 7 a.m.* Los Angeles (LAX) at 8:45 a.m.

*First flight departing OMA is on Nov. 11, 2019

The Los Angeles-Omaha flight will operate on Delta Connection carrier Compass Airlines using a 76-seat Embraer 175 aircraft with seating for 12 in First Class, 20 in Delta Comfort+ and 44 in Main Cabin.

 

The Los Angeles basin is among the most popular destinations from Omaha and strengthens Delta’s presence in the city. Delta has grown departures out of Omaha by more than 10 percent over the past year and will offer 22 peak-day flights in November to seven nonstop destinations. This includes a third daily flight to Delta’s New York-LaGuardia Airport hub, which launched on May 1.

In other news, Delta is celebrating 100 days of no cancellations.

Delta issued this statement:

When Delta says it’s cancelling cancellations – they mean it.

Delta is once again setting the bar for operational reliability, rocketing to 100 days without a mainline cancelyear-to-date Friday, May 10, almost a month ahead of last year’s pace.

The cancel-free day count continued through the weekend with the airline now at 104 days for the mainline system1, including both domestic and international operations, compared to 87 this time last year. Delta maintained Friday’s 99.84 percent completion factor ranking, or the measure of flights operated versus scheduled, through the weekend into Wednesday.

Year-to-date, the airline has also logged 57 cancel-free ‘brand days’ across both Delta mainline and Delta Connection operations2 – 15 more than last year.

Delta’s latest operational accomplishment comes on the heels of the news that the airline is leading the industry for on-time arrivals during what has been the strongest first quarter since the merger for mainline and network performance.

Earlier this year, the airline earned the top spot in the latest 2018 Airline Quality Rating, was recognized by FlightGlobal as the most on-time airline and by The Wall Street Journal as the best airline of 2018, similarly to The Points Guy.

“Reaching this 100-day milestone so quickly is a true testament to the hard work of our people across the operation and their dedication to taking care of our customers,” said Dave Holtz, S.V.P. – Operations and Customer Center. “We keep climbing, improving year after year, because our customers count on us to connect them to moments that matter around the world every day.”
