One flight cut, another added

GULFPORT, Miss. - Delta Air Lines is scheduled to cut direct flights from Gulfport and Mobile, Ala., to Memphis in January, a Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport official said. But US Airways is adding a flight from Gulfport to Charlotte, N.C. The director of air service for the Gulfport airport said that while planes have usually been full flying from Gulfport to Memphis, Memphis is not the final destination for most passengers, and Delta likely can save money routing passengers through Atlanta instead.
