Delta begins Changes in Schedules Monday

ATLANTA(AP) Delta Air Lines begins changes in its schedules today.

The so-called Operation Clockwork is designed to save up to  $100 million in savings or new revenues within a year by adding flights and reducing chronic delays at the airline's biggest hub in Atlanta.

Delta hopes to net another $100 million or so each year by shutting down its Dallas hub and shifting the aircraft to more lucrative markets.

The moves were announced last fall.

Delta's daily departures from Atlanta will increase from 970 to 1,051 when the Dallas hub is shut down. The airline plans to make room for that growth by spreading flights across the day rather than concentrating them in "banks" that arrive and depart in clusters.

Some industry experts say Delta's moves will pay off in the long run but could cost the struggling carrier (m) millions of dollars in the meantime.
