Check out the end (around 4:20) when he talks about getting rid of older planes faster. Are the arbitrators going to see this???

Make sure the NWA attorney who said the DC9s would last forever at the SLI hearing gets a look at this.

I'm not really sure why we want to poke sticks at each other. It's totally out of our hands. There's only a few people on each side that have any control over strategy and three arbitrators that will dictate the result. Nothing said here will have any effect except to piss each other off. What kind of post merger work environment do we want?

It will get ugly like it did that time. Once the list comes out and we have all licked out paws and calmed down, it will be like it was up to last week on this board.
It is fun to have a spirited debate about these things. Heck it is a lot better than the ALPA national board.

Noserider, thank you! That's refreshing.

There are 10 DAL guys at my reserve unit, 9 out of 10 are cool dudes that I have no doubt will treat the NWA guys with mutual respect.

I look forward to flying with 95% of the DAL group. Those throwing insults here need to look in the mirror.

Throwing insults? C'mon, that's a bit dramatic. I think GL was pointing out some contentious facts at the moment. This too will pass.

You are right, there were no insults on this thread. That's what was "refreshing." Look at the other threads and you will see what I mean.

If you don't see any insults and cat-fighting on the "mega-10-page-posts" then I'll have my eye-sight checked.

Sorry to belabor my small and insignificant point, but it was nice to read Noserider's post. That simple.

I now predict that due to a lack of mud-slinging, this tread will drift off into FI oblivion.

Probably true, but it is good to state that even though we are having a heated debate, it to will pass and we ALL will move beyond it.

Just remember you guys are near the finish line and you will all make out better than most people out there (i.e., UAL, CAL, F9, Sun Country, ATA, etc.)... It's all relative. You expected and got some turbulence along the way but now things are nearly finalized and soon you can focus on making the combined Delta a force to be reckoned with as a unified group. No agreement is ever perfect.

I LOVE all of you guys, and can't wait to buy you hosers a bunch of Moose Drool bear in Bozeman! Can one of you teach me how to fly an A319 in the left seat? Occam?

Thanks dude. I appreciate your positive posts as well. I wasn't really referring to the thread or GL's post but it was pretty obvious where it was headed after reading as much as I could stand of the other threads.

I realize there's a lot of stress over this whole process but I'd hate to see us start to make this into a crappy place to work. The info can be interesting but there's no need to downgrade each other. Mud-slinging over things that are completely out of our control seems to serve no purpose at this point except to poison the water.

Gongrats, NWA alums-This toolbag will soon be one of your most favorite F.O.s.

-Just keep that gear-handle operating properly, Gen.... Everything else has a way of working itself out-despite your complete incompetence.

I don't like Moose Drool bear or any other kind of bear for that matter... I definitely would enjoy some Moose Drool beer on tap and some peanuts on the shell at Moose's in FCA...

If you listen he was talking about the industry as a whole. I sure hope all those old 767s don't get parked too quick! If not, DAL only brings 10 wide bodies to the table--that is excluding your flight attendants.

With relative seniority or relative position, I will do really well. Really.

You mean our old 767-400s? Oh yeah. Well, we sure as heck know they are NOT "super duper smell my pooper" premiun widebody flying...... And the old 767s (the 767-200s) were parked when all of our senior guys left with their pension. (along with the MD11s) But, you knew that......
