Doesn't Comair travel on mainline Delta as S3's with DOH? Is that just the pilots or all Comair employees? Do you guys also get 6 S2/year/family member?

For now, anyway. Rumor mill is buzzing that we'll go down to Compass/Mesaba-level flight status.

We'll see.

That would be what they mean when they say, "We are taking the best of both non-rev programs to create the best non-rev program for the worlds biggest airline."

Best?---according to who?

The best would bring Mesaba/Compass up to the same as Comair.

It isn't a Comair thing.

All wholly owned subsidiaries of Delta have the same travel benefits as "mainline"...as did ASA when they were owned by Delta. So doesn't matter what your position...or what division...a 30 year reservations agent will bump a 20 yr Capt...as will a 25 yr employee of DGS or whatever other subsidiary you want to name.

Have a nice day!

Well, we do NOW.

The issue is whether the rumor is true about Comair employees soon going down to S3B status. You'd still get priority on CMR aircraft, I believe, but a 20-year CMR CA would get bumped by every DAL employee on a DAL aircraft. If true, the commute to JFK is going to get a little more interesting.

The way it was explained to me, the NWA guys are getting pay raises and better work rules by coming up to DAL's contract. But the DAL guys aren't getting anything, because they already had that. But the NWA guys have a perk where they enjoy priority over regional pilots, and this is something they can give to DAL guys, and it doesn't cost the company a thing.

Anyway, we'll soon see what the real deal is, methinks...

The Delta guys are getting our attrition and career advancement. It is a lost cause now, but pretending like the Delta pilots are not getting anything from this merger is like throwing salt in the wound.

Thats the way is should be. DAL people first on Delta AC and Comair people first on Comair AC.

Close... Delta (and Delta employees) should be operating ANYTHING with a Delta paintjob selling Delta tickets. Then everything else falls into place course we all know where that argument leads, don't we?
