It would be an easy move for Delta. They have a lot a extra hub space since they acquired Northwest. For exampla at Memphis.

These airports need to realize that they are at the mercy of their customers. I grew up in Cincinnati and always thought that I would transfer to CVG at some point in time, but alas the NW/Delta merger has taken over 30% of their traffic and moved it to DTW. I'm in an adjoining facility and word on the street is that CVG went from working level 11 traffic to 9 traffic. I'm sure they would welcome any connections from Hartsfield, so Atlanta had better be careful or they may end up in the same boat Cincy is in now.

i dont think atl will have trouble maintaining facility level even if some buis was routed to the other hubs..It is the busiest airport in the US (world?) and is only a level 12 because there isnt a higher level....

If Delta leaves, another airline will replace it and start at a hub at ATL. Hartsfield is the busiest airport in the world and is more like a 14 or 15 when comparing it to some other level 12s...
