I'm kind of surprised by this expanded service with still almost no service to the Great Plains. Being from Nebraska, my only non-stop option is to fly into Kansas City and drive 5-6 hours to central Nebraska. The last time I flew back home, there was only 1 flight per day to Kansas City. There are NO direct flights to Lincoln or Omaha. The only other option to fly non-stop into the Great Plains area is fly to Denver, and then drive again 5-6 hours to central Nebraska. I know I'm being a little self-serving, but I just can't believe there are SO FEW flights from this area. My brother and family live in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and they are planning to drive the 4-5 hours up to Kansas City for the direct flight to visit me next summer. If you look at the thousands of square miles this geography covers, I only know the following direct flights from/to Boston: Kansas City, Dallas, Denver. No direct flights from/to: Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota. So, basically there is a straight line from Dallas up to the Canadian Border that has NOTHING. I know this area is sparsely populated, but the connecting flights to Omaha always seem really full.Published at 1900GMT 26DEC22 Delta during the weekend of 24DEC22’s schedule update opened reservation on various domestic routes.
