Delta and Northworst would be a mess of massive proportions. I really hate to see this happen (if it does).

Wow,That would be ugly.Think back to American/TWA.I know a lot of TWA mechs that were not to happy.The empty suits always say that there will be no job losses among the rank and file.

Where I live, ASQ, FRL, and FLG. So our flight frequency at KPFN will decline, and the prices will increase. It already costs $600 USD for a 1 HOUR or less flight to KATL. This is just bad for local flights, but it will be great for Delta in the long run. Well as long as the combined airlines is D.B.A. Delta Airlines.Every time I flew NWA it was a stinker of a flight. Not as bad a US Scareways, but nearly as bad. Delta has always been good to me. But I really belive the pilots will break the deal.

hardly unexpected now that both are (together with Continental) Skyteam members.After AF took over KLM it was only a matter of time until major mergers among other airlines in the group would take place.In fact I think we'll over time see those groups merge ever more into forming a small number of massively large global airlines rather than cooperatives of independent companies.

According to that report Northwest lost $8 million and Delta $70 million in the fourth quarter. Something's got to be done about that.The purpose of airlines to to fly passengers profitably - it isn't to provide employment. Unless of course the public are prepared to pay higher fares to achieve that.

the way the industry works now is to provide massive salaries to union organised workers over the heads of passengers, shareholders, and creditors.That's not how it is supposed to work, but it is the reality.
