Who cares what happened 10 years ago? The Lions were 0-16 a couple years ago and will probably make the playoffs this year. What is your point? I am more concerned with what is happening now and what is projected to happen in the future. Delta is a huge cash cow now and if you want to harp over the past 10 years of history to make yourself feel better than so be it. Look at Deltas projected profits for 2012, 2013 & 2014. They are huge !!

Question: You really running with Delta's profit projections in this economy?

DL has decreased capacity while adding bag fees, fuel surcharges, and fare hikes that have stuck because SWA lost those famous fuel hedges of years past. Bag fees last year equalled about $950 million. Answer: Yeah......


Godspeed!

The neat-o part is that in 3 years the 717 Capts will make the same as your 747 Capts. FANTASTIC!!

If you keep posting losses, I doubt they will, or you either. In 3 years our pilots will be enjoying a lucrative new contract, making more per hour than you, and mostly avoiding ELP (except the MD88 guys). I won't be doing it, but you will!


Godspeed!
