Had a three hour sit the other day and crunched a few numbers from the BTS website.

From 2002-2008:

prior to the merger Delta Air Lines provided the government with these figures...

-mainline fleet shrunk by 30%
-mainline fleet percentage a widebodies in fleet shrunk from 26%
to 20% of remaining fleet.
-mainline pilot group shrunk by 21%
-DAL total employee group shrunk by 28%

but the number of managers grew by 27%

hmmm

Uncle Doug is taking care of business-he is on the board. New NWA managers pretty much have no equal today in terms of being jackasses (unless you include J.O.)
