Since the entire industry is doing and sending and servicing their AC the exact same way, well, u gonna predict the same exact thing for everyone? What day will it happen. How many AC will it happen to? U r one ignorant mal content. When a map-content predicts the demise of a Carrier and none of his predictions come true then they just call this map-content, amongst other, scary/stupid.
Yes it will or is happening to the entire industry. MRO's are doing the bulk of the heavy maintenance today. I am not saying MRO's are bad... all I am saying... is it's going to become more expensive than in-house maintenance ever was. You can't give away the farm and expect to eat cheap. Every contract an MRO pick up, there is a different set or rules on the maintenance performed. Every time an AL changes contractors they're paying for that learning curve all over again. It's not as simple as taking your car to a different mechanic. The old CEO's might have been bucking union employees, but now they're going to be bucking an entire industry that they can't function without. The AL's new saw the value in maintenance. The MRO's see nothing but value in maintenance. This is not a prediction, this is scary/stupid on the part of the newbies / CEO's of today.

That's all hogwash. No successful biz person would have views of other bizness like you do. And they certainly wouldn't have the time to run their conspiracy theories on so many threads like you do. You can predict all you want w/ some ignorant pride but when nothing, not one single thing you have predicted has come to bear fruit. The weakest is..........DAL isn't out of business........yet. All the carriers are gonna have AC falling out of the skies..........that's ur prediction. Wing nut. No doubt you have Rush on ur favs.

Delta had an exceptional year for recognition in 2012, winning 33 airline industry awards and confirming the airline’s position as an industry leader in many aspects of our business.

The airline achieved an unprecedented sweep of the major corporate/agency related surveys including Business Travel News, Travel Weekly, TravelAge West, Recommend Magazine and The Beat. These survey winners are selected by their readers, an indication that Delta is becoming the preferred airline for business travelers.

Earlier this year, Delta’s push to improve the overall customer experience through technology landed it at the top of the PC World magazine’s list of the 10 most tech-friendly airlines in the U.S.

Delta also won the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award for exceptional support of National Guard and Reserve employees. The airline was one of only 15 employers across the country and the first airline in a decade to receive the award.

In September, Delta was the only airline named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for North America illustrating its continued commitment to integrate sustainable practices into the workplace.

Other award highlights include Best Achievement in Technology for the Fly Delta App by the Airline Passenger Experience Association; Best Solutions Provider for Delta Techops by OneAero MRO and Best Single Media Promotion for a U.S. Airline for the “Your Bags Journey on Delta” video from Travel+Leisure.

These awards are testimony to the hard work of Delta employees to continually improve its product and provide the best service possible to its customers. Delta enters the New Year with great momentum and will continue to pursue awards during the climb in 2013.

Not really making much sense with this. Delta TechOps IS an MRO. Explain how using this particular MRO relates to your claims "being more expensive than in-house maintenance", and "different set of rules". Looks like the "scary/stupid" problem exists a little closer to some disgruntled ex-employees than the current CEO. Seeing as the current CEO of Delta TechOps is...Richard Anderson.

Here's what wikipedia says. With all your in depth knowledge of Delta maintenance practices, you should edit the article. Oh, that's right, you've never actually worked for Delta.

"Delta TechOps is the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) division of Delta Air Lines, and is headquartered at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL) in Atlanta, Georgia. With more than 9,600 Technical Operations employees and 51 maintenance stations worldwide, Delta TechOps is a full-service maintenance provider for the more than 750 aircraft that make up the Delta Air Lines fleet. In addition to maintaining the Delta Air Lines fleet, Delta TechOps also provides MRO solutions and support to more than 150 third-party operators around the world, making it the largest airline MRO provider in North America and the third largest worldwide."

Awards are a funny thing. As a matter of fact... any news at all today... is a funny thing. I guess it all depends on who’s telling the Story.

Delta MD90 near Sioux Falls on Dec 20th 2012, cargo smoke indication

A Delta Airlines McDonnell Douglas MD-90, registration N955DN performing flight DL-1348 from Minneapolis, MN to Tucson, AZ (USA), was enroute at FL300 about 70nm southwest of Sioux Falls, SD when the crew received a cargo smoke indication and decided to turn the aircraft around and divert to Sioux Falls Regional Airport, where the aircraft landed safely about 25 minutes later. Attending emergency services found no trace of fire, heat or smoke.

The smoke detector was later identified defective.

A replacement MD-90 registration N908DA reached Tucson with a delay of 8 hours.

The incident aircraft positioned back to Minneapolis as flight DL-9938 about 7 hours after landing and resumed service the following day.

More NTSB reports? From some blog? Were you there? Any actual facts? You have to figure with 5000 flights a day involving over 700 aircraft, there will be occasional malfunctions. Sounds like the crew handled it professionally and I'm sure the problem will be addressed.

Here's something you won't want to miss:

"Delta TechOps will be featured in an upcoming special on the History Channel 2 on inventions that changed the world.

The 2-hour special, titled '101 Inventions that Changed the World,' will premiere on Saturday, Dec. 29, 2012, at 10 p.m. EST on the History Channel 2.

A description of the show from the History Channel said it highlights how human ingenuity comes in all shapes and sizes and further noted that some inventions – like the airplane – pushed the limits of what was ever believed possible.

Delta TechOps is featured in two segments of the show – the jet engine and radar segments."
