Delta drops Memphis as hub: UPDATE — No Delta to Memphis from LR

Posted By on Tue, Jun 4, 2013 at 3:31 PM

The Commercial Appeal in Memphis is reporting that Delta Air Lines will cut daily flights from Memphis International Airport from 94 to 64 starting in September and will no longer use the airport as a hub.

Delta departures numbered 115 in early 2012.

The Democrat-Gazette on Sunday ran a story from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution about the troubles at the Memphis airport and the upcoming cuts in departures.

UPDATE: Delta will no longer be making its one flight to Memphis from Little Rock every day starting Sept. 3, Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport spokesperson Shane Carter said. That means there will be no flights to Memphis from Little Rock, Carter said.
