We understand that a loss for Delta pilots is a loss for all pilots.

If they strike, they lose everything. If they bend over, the numnuts on here will blame them for lowering the bar. There is no such thing as negotiating in BK....it is a slow, painful surrender. Ask any U or UAL pilot......they take what they want and the judge will give it to them because they are the ones running the company.
The Airtran pilots are salivating at the thought that the DAL boys walk.....so be careful what you wish for. When it is over, the NWA boys will get the same treatment. No pension, no jobs for many, and the possibility of a tomorrow. No promises though!

Delta management is about to do the same. 50,000 out of work over a 225 million difference in what management says is required from the pilots vs. what is offered. 15 billion or so in annual revenue and 225 million could be the death of Delta. Hard to believe.
