Delta’s Memphis in maps

Delta Air Lines will cut 12 destinations and about 30 flights from Memphis International this September, as it de-hubs the former Northwest Airlines stronghold.

Gone are flights to Baton Rouge, Fayetteville/Northwest Arkansas, Fort Lauderdale, Jackson, Knoxville, Little Rock, Oklahoma City, Omaha, Phoenix, St. Louis, Shreveport and Tulsa by 3 September. Remaining are 27 cities and 64 flights on peak days that include hubs, focus cities and some large business and leisure destinations around the country.

But this is a story best told in maps.
