Wow leftover baller sushi?!? Play on fluffier!

Still mad about not getting a 100 seater in this upcoming TA? I bet you are. Wait until you see the TA. Good luck Hulkster!

Yeah, we fly more NFL teams than anyone. I had an interesting trip into DCA in a 757-300(Saints use the 767-400 but we couldn't do it into DCA that day) one evening. We stayed the night in DC then flew them up to PVD after their white house visit. A 767-400 was waiting for us to return them to MSY after playing the Patriots. All the runways were short for the stretch 757 and of course the 767 but that is normal ops when doing charters. I enjoy the charters and the crews and all that goes into them. Continental flew more teams than anyone before we merged. We know how to treat the teams.

Let's hope you're paid a lot more to fly them coming up here. Fingers crossed!


Bye Bye---General Lee

Wow!!

You make it sound like those of us Bubba Gumps never did a charter before.....only NWA were the Masters at it!

We name all our planes Jen-Nay!!!!
Wow!

Leave it to you to turn it into a N vs S thing. I provided some historical info related to the original post that I thought would give a little extra info on the origin of the HIGHLY successful NBA program at DELTA and you somehow take it as a slam. And you guys thought WE were the paranoid side...Geez

But since you thought it was such a slam on Delta, why don't YOU provide some details about Delta's history of team owned ultra-luxury interiors installed on line a/c to support a waiting-list charter operation.


Thanks for reminding me why I hardly ever come here anymore.

Sigh..

Ok,

Go re-read your post, take a deep deep breath and wonder if you maybe came across as the North side is holier than thou.....

You had the Airbus all decked out, how nice! Yep, something the south never did. We never dedicated an airplane to a charter or group....it was as is.....

Yep, that was the last trip Delta flew for them. I flew their first trip the next season when Continental won the contract. Thanks

Who's Continental?

We know. You're cheap labor. You undercut the competition. It's all about who can do it at the cheapest rate. It's been that way for a while now. (sigh)

What is really great is not paying for "USA Day-Before-Yesterday". They are readily available since most pro athletes can't read...and the moronic crosswords are so bad they get a PHD if they leave it on the crapper lid less than 1/3 solved.

Wow... apparently PARANOID doesn't begin to cover it with you..INSECURE much?

How bout this: The custom interior NBA charter program originated with NWA. It was extremely successful/profitable. Post merger, DAL made the easy decision to keep the program, put the NWA folks who were running it in charge of it at DAL and promote it further. It is STILL extremely profitable and popular with the majority of NBA teams. It makes a nice contribution to the bottom line which benefits us all

Those FACTS wouldn't sound like a holier than thou attitude to ANYONE except a highly insecure, paranoid, RD who can't handle it when someone points out something that NWA did successfully. I didn't bring it up. We were discussing the history of the various charter ops at the new DAL. If YOU would like to discuss the history of something Delta did that NWA didn't do as much, such as Europe flying, I can assure you I won't get defensive and say something stupid like you did...Why? Because the facts are the facts. And who really cares anyway?

You must really hate the way DAL puts pictures of the 747-400 EVERYWHERE. Lighten up Loosen up......A LOT....life will be a lot easier.

Tapped a nerve did I?

I wasn't the one on here dragging out past history for all to admire from your volumes of aviation activity.

Remind me again what "super Premium" wide body flying is? Oh never mind, you already did in your post......

Like most NWA....blah blah blah.....NWA...blah blah...747....blah blah....Narita.....blah
