Delta spokeswoman Chris Kelly said it was far too soon to predict what if any changes would be made in service to Boston or anywhere else. "We are maintaining normal operations right now, and as part of our reorganization we will go in to examine our route structure, looking at everywhere we fly in the coming weeks and months," Kelly said. "The first thing we need to do is simplify our fleet, and then it's all about getting the right aircraft in the right places at the right times of day."
Industry analysts also expect cutbacks from Northwest Airlines Corp., which controls just 5 percent of the Logan market and also sought bankruptcy protection on Wednesday. Most Northwest service to and from Boston flows through its hub facilities in Detroit and Minneapolis. In its current schedule, Northwest operates 28 nonstop flights from Logan, including a daily trans-Atlantic flight to Amsterdam and direct service to Cleveland, Indianapolis, and Milwaukee.
Delta Air Lines Inc. is widely expected to spare Boston from its deepest cutbacks in service, but Logan officials could have one potential headache.
