(Video) Flashback: Bucharest - New York with Delta Air Lines
Cristian Dumitru, a good friend of ours and a fan of AirlinesTravel.ro, sent us pictures from direct flight Bucharest - New York operated by Delta Air Lines. It's happening on 21 June 2008. At that time, Delta Air Lines was operating regular flights to and from Bucharest. It had entered the market in 2007, after a break of 10 years.
DL0135 flight take off at 13: 45 from Bucharest and land in New York at local time 17: 30, after 10 hours and 45 minutes of flight and 7 639 miles traveled. It was operated with Boeing 767-300ER!
Unfortunately, the US airline has decided to withdraw from the Romanian market in full economic crisis. In September 2009, Delta Air Lines gave up the route because it was no longer profitable due to increased competition and low prices, although the freight rate was 80%.
And since then, we still dream of the day when Romania will be linked to the United States with direct flights!
