Nearly a have a century from a duct tape and bailing wire crop dusters, delta is run by carpetbaggers leftover from frank lorenzo's Texas Air. These guys aren't worried about the company, and its employees, they're worried about how they look to their investors. Buying stock in a company is not meant for next day profits... it's meant for long term safety. Like Social security... For those who can afford to do better.
Somehow we've lost sight of the fact that the world goes on without us! Everything is about tomorrow and to hell with what comes after that. We will leave a history, but it will be one, that, never thought of anyone else. We can change this but it has to start at the top. Call it trickle down Morality. A debt owed to those that come next!
Is It to late?

Can't wait for our record profit sharing in February. That's for the employees on payroll, Does not count the numerous losers that walked off the job. More for us and all the quality techs we have at Delta.
Happy New Year!

Yeah I've seen how high your stock has gone. Wow hard too believe. A couple more bucks and it will equal the put price of RA's nwa days .
You still don't get it. It's not about Delta, it's the exec's you have. It's not about SCAMFA or any union. It's the scabs and exec's you have. It's about farming out the work your quality techs don't have. It's about the union busting mentality that walked us off our jobs. I am happy for the employees of Delta. Delta was a great airline before the merger with the new nwa. I am just sorry that your new found success came from the suffering of so many honorable people. Like Delta, Northwest was a great airline before these exec's showed up. They have a track record of destroying airlines. They have a track record of profiteering off the backs of the employees before trashing the place and moving on to the next victim. Best wishes to Delta, but I don't see these execs' and their success lasting much longer. They create debt by financing the assets, pocket the new found money and move on. So far so good though. Good luck.

Wow look how far we've sunk. Judged as clueless and nuts for thinking we owe something better to those who come next.

It is way too late for you. Thats really sad to tell you. Your hatred of those that didn't do anything to ruin your life at all. Record profits, that 10 dollar stock you screamed about is, well, a heck of allot more than 10 bux. That part about Mr Anderson burning DAL then running off w/ moola, didn't happen. The part about 1000's of lay offs, well, that didn't happen. Every position that was downsized was offered the same or better position at another station. Record profit sharing, industry leading wages/benefits. The list goes on, all of it in spite of your prediction of failure. One of the best results? No union screwing up progress.

Good luck. And we don't get it? These are the exact same predictions that made a fool of you. We get it. You don't get it.
