Another ridiculous idea from NWA management!!
No one is going to change their vacation plans for $5-$10
Please-if they were that broke they wouldn't go on vacation. BUT the reduction will effect NWA's bottom line. Management needs to go back to school.
Here's a novel idea -get that CPM (Cost per mile) figure add it up- add a little profit and OMG you have the price of a ticket! But common sense is left at the door when you work for NWA management!

go on and fly away with nwa, their airplanes only losing a tire, no big deal.
next time they'll fly with wings missing wing flaps, after all planes have multiple wing flaps for emergency situations

right?

Why would the pilots fly these planes? Do you imply they are .. out of their mind?

pilots don't fly unsafe airplanes of course,
but nwa planes flying with parts falling off in the air,
and according to nwa, that's normal,
any one thinks that's normal, he/she is an idiots.

NWA has been serving Winnipeg for 75 years.
Keep flying us. The percentages are in the favor of safety.

But SAFE, does not mean, Risk Free!

Many thousands of people are indeed avoiding NorthWORST Airlines as the real story of what they have done to their aircraft repair people comes to light. We shall never fly on them until their mechanics are returned. There are other options available to the flying public then a mismanaged mess that creats war against its best employees for no reason. And that scab problem they have is not the answer. How could employees stab each other in the back like that. Lets hope their names are being saved so that when they go elsewhere they can always carry the scab label and be rejected as the scum that they are.

Do not fly Northwest Airlines! The service was terrible before the strike and everyone is saying it is even worse now. Now you don’t even know if your ticket is going to be good if you book it a few weeks in advance.

I’m sorry, so is the subject “Why can't these forums stay on subject”,“Bitterness will kill you” or “There is a life after working for an airline”

I thought the topic was: Hey, can anyone think of a more idiotic way to lose money than Northwest Airlines?

the authenticity of the piece by Zamir Chadee might be questionable. They are promoting a holiday club that has been complained about by countless of people and there are a number of lawsuits that have been filed against this company Geo Holiday.
