Jan 26, 2009 is supposedly judgement day for both parties.
I'd be really surprised if anything dramatic is going to happen anytime soon, JO will keep doing his thing, rearranging the dirt long enough to get himself out of trouble. As much as I don't like that company, more pilots on the street is not good for all of us.
I know that DAL would love to keep them in legal proceedings for the rest of their life. I know that it is their intent to keep those 50's off the schedule, even if they have to pay for it.
