Delta Cuts Direct West Coast Connection



    Delta discontinues direct BDL to LAX service.

    The highly-touted direct West Coast connection from Bradley Airport has been disconnected.

    According to the Hartford Business Journal, Delta Air Lines is shuting down its direct Hartford-to-Los Angeles flight as of today.

    Although the direct flight performed well in the summer, the bookings were weak for the fall and winter seasons, the Business Journal reports.

    "The Hartford-Los Angeles service started as a summer service with consideration for year-round service. At this time, its performance has proven only as a summer seasonal route," Delta spokesman Anthony Black told the HBJ.

    Delta had the only direct flight to L.A, which resumed in June after the carrier previously discontinued the route in 2008.

    The direct Los Angeles service could resume next summer, but that won't be decided until sometime in the future, Black said.
