Spoke with a supervisor couldn't understand her name she was clueless. We have two trips scheduled with delta in 2019, after that we are finding another airline, don't know if there is one better I will at least try.
Delta just found a better and more profitable use for that aircraft and dropping or trimming money loosing flights is something all airlines do. you may not like it, but that is the case. Now the aircraft that may be brought in to operate the only other flight(s) from ABQ maybe operated by a regional feed airline like SkyWest or Republic, and they may have seating configurations that may be changing all the time based on which airline will be operating that aircraft, and equipment swaps can lead to other issues.
