Although....plenty of them - they'd just pull the barrier off, and camp in there anyway.

Mostly Delta flying in all three versions of CRJs.

Why is that compared to ORD or MSP? There seems to be fewer flights to DTW as a West Coast commuter, so aside from better seniority why would you prefer DTW?

As in routes, overnights, schedules? I mean, yeah Delta is great, but we’re talking a longer commute to one more time zone with fewer flights so it has to be worth it.

And, amcnd, MSP = United flying?

MSP is Delta, ORD does have some sweet DL trips though... ORD base does seem to get more West then DTW/MSP crews.. All this changes monthly though. Wouldn’t worry to much about pinning down overnights...

There's actually plenty of non stop flights DTW-SLC and Delta brought the red-eye back as well. MSP has too many Delta commuters heading west and the flights fill up fast. ORD just plain sucks. Sucky airport, terminals, and mostly United flying. I like to stick with Delta stuff. Life is easier.

Which carrier is best for you is subjective.
