Delta is getting rid of gates to save cash.
According to Bloomberg.com, the airline will save tens of millions every year simply by operating with fewer gates. That seems pretty reasonable, but we have a feeling we’re gonna regret saying that the next time we can’t find a seat while we’re waiting to board.
Apparently, of the 249 Delta gates in Minneapolis, Detroit, Memphis, and other locations that were in need of new signs, Delta has only replaced 117. Fewer than half!
Delta has a goal to cut their expenses by 2 billion. Tens of millions isn’t much of a dent. What else can they cut? It’s not like their flights are rampant with expensive perks. To save that much … they’re probably going to have to stop flying airplanes.
