Delta's mid-day flights will be coming back after all

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WA  -  Delta's plans to end mid-day flights to Yakima have been grounded for now.

The airline announced last week that it was going to discontinue that service starting on May 1st, but Delta officials say the mid-day flights will start up again after a two month hiatus on July 1st.

Many people who got off today's mid-day flight had been dealing with delays and layovers, but told us this was at least some good news.    

"I utilize it all the time.  Flying myself, my family, busineswise," says Brent Dallman, who was aboard the mid-day Delta flight on Monday, "Mid-day is really nice.  I don't have to drive to Pasco or Seattle to do it."

Dallman's flight was full and Delta officials says it had no issues with how full the yakima flights have been.

The cut backs are due to higher fuel prices.
