    NWA?DAL deal rumored within 2 weeks

    I have predicted this merger for some time. I also move the announcement date ealier than I originally anticipated which was end of 2008. It will take well into 2009 or longer to work out the details. I just hope its not a melt down like Airways/AWA.

    Alaska 261 Animated Footage.....

    Sad that this could have been prevented. There has always been that constant struggle between management trying to improve the bottom line vs safety. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqDctxTEXrQ&mode=related&search=

    Delta Posts $1.77B profit

    Yes you can rest assured of two things: 1. Management will try to help themselved whenever they can. 2. The pilots will ask for money back. They will use everything possible to make this happen. The plan talking to most of my Delta friends is to let the company turn a healthy profit...

    Newest Open Skies Proposal - NAFTA style

    Mergers will happen and will help short term. Long term the business of being an airline pilot is not worth it. The schedules are already bad. I'm a republican but can tell you this administration is short sited. All they can think is what will give the public cheaper tickets right now...
