Delta Tells Some Feeder Airlines: Rebid for Routes

Delta said the so-called request for proposal, or RFP, covers flying by up to 143 regional jets.

Woerth also said he plans to block the Comair pilots' concession agreement. "I've told them I won't sign that deal," he said.

Meanwhile, Kolshak said Comair continues to shrink.

Twenty-seven of the regional jets subject to being rebid are Comair jets, he said. The Cincinnati-based carrier's fleet has dropped from 174 jets to 168 since it filed for bankruptcy along with Delta, and is scheduled to lose 30 more jets this fall, separate from whatever happens in the rebidding process, he said.

"If they continue to lose flying, it would not bode well for the long term," he said.
