What's the scuttlebutt about DAE and the bankruptcy at Delta?

737 Pylt said:its just too bad furloughed DAL pilots can't be hired there. I know of several of our furloughees who won't even be considered because of their status.
our (mis)management team sucks!
Spooky 1 said:Some other management company will probably buy them, although I'm not sure what assets they have other than contracts with various coporations or well heeled individuals, all of which are probably meaningless considering the shape of Delta. Not being a core business, I would imagine it would be one of the first spin-offs, regardless whether or not it was profitable. I have always suspected that it's original creation was for the sole purpose of providing transporation for the likes of Leo Mullin and his ilk just so they would not be face to face with the Delta flight crews during unpleasent contract negotiations in the past. They may actually own a couple of Challengers, but I am sure that the bulk of their fleet is outside managed ownership. Probably the likes of TAG Aviation, Jet Aviation, and NetJets are lurking in the background to see if there are any scraps worth bidding on. Just MHO.
JG and his cronies are probably using them to go back and forth to NYC for the BK proceedings and lawyer meetings.
