Comments from another board which I tend to agree with.
AF and DL: Creating the First Global Megacarrier
There has clearly been a lot of talk about mergers in the anticipation that the long-awaited consolidation of the US airline industry may finally be upon us as DL makes the first in...
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.

CONTINUING TO REVIEW OUR STRATEGIC OPTIONS
Today, Pardus Capital Management LP (an investment group holding Delta common stock) publicly
disclosed a letter they sent to us recommending...
Sad that this could have been prevented. There has always been that constant struggle between management trying to improve the bottom line vs safety.
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...
I am just curious what you personaly would have done differently? When in BK the judge is basically making the changes that the company is asking for, the current administration won't allow a strike and if you vote no too many times you get an even worse deal crammed down your throat. Once...
Any of you Delta guys here about a possible fllight direct to Europe from Salt Lake City? Also I'm assuming the "growth" is speaking to regional jets.
Any word on the rumoured 20 to 60 MD-90's from China Southern Delta's was looking to place in SLC? Would these take back some routes that had...
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...
For those of you with upcoming interviews word on the street is the process is getting some changes effective after today. Also, Jon Swift is stepping down to fly the 777. Not sure who will be taking the reigns of pilot selection/interviews now.
For those who hang in there long enough destiny has a way of manifesting itself. Good Luck Halin. You seem like a good guy to fly with. I tend to agree with you RE attitudes of some of the SWA gang on here. Eerily reminscent of United guys/girls back in the late nineties when they were top dog...
ACL, you could always do the 7ER for two years, take in NY as a one time life event then bid back to 767 ATL domestic. The fam might have something to say about this however:) If hiring continues like it is now you could probably hold a line in ATL at the end of the two years. Just a thought.
