In the Strib article, Ed also sort-of-promised a new non-stop to Mexico City, which would be a great addition:
The move aligns with Delta's focus on international growth. About one-third of the airline's current operations are outside the U.S. Bastian would like to see that grow to about 50 percent. Delta formed a similar JV partnership with Aeromexico last year, which Bastian said will mirror what the airline is doing with its Korean partner.

"We get a lot of questions about connecting Minneapolis to Mexico City, and we aren't ready to announce that, but it's clearly our goal to be able to fly that, Bastian said, "so i think you will see us do that in the not too distant future."

Thank god we're getting ICN. Asia connectivity has sucked since Narita went away. Haven't flown Delta the last several trips. Mexico city is cool, also. Should make it a hell of a lot easier to fly to Oaxaca.

Northwest and/or Delta tried MSP-MEX years ago. Didn't last long, but hopefully with the joint venture with AeroMexico it has a better chance.

AeroMexico even applied to start MSP-MEX a decade ago. They got approval, but never started it.
