“I think frankly it was an excuse they used. And it think it was a very lame excuse. No offense to Delta and they have great service but I have flight attendants who tell me they are packed flights.” – Governor Eddie Calvo

Guam – Governor Eddie Calvo says that he believes Delta’s decision to end its Guam route to Narita, Japan was a strategic one and not on that was based on the demand.

The Governor told Patti Arroyo on the “Morning’s with Patti” show that he’s flown this Delta route in the past and they were always packed flights. The Governor believes it has something to do with Delta choosing to focus more on their routes to Haneda which is a route that they don’t have from Guam. In addition, the Governor says he believes Delta has been more focused on Korea.

“So, their alliances are more with Korean Airlines and that’s where you’re seeing Delta now with more stocks in Incheon. I think frankly it was an excuse they used. And it think it was a very lame excuse. No offense to Delta and they have great service but I have flight attendants who tell me they are packed flights,” said Governor Calvo.

The Governor says that he will come up with a gameplan to replace the estimated 200 thousand seats that Guam is losing with the Delta pullout.
