Good mechanics are never wasted money ! You want too waste money?... buy new aircraft every couple of years. If GA mechanics can keep 1950 era Cessna's flying safe... good airline mechanics can keep 1980 airliners making money. The old NWA knew this. The new Nwa knew nothing of the sort. For them it was all about perception... all about them! Nitwits With Airplanes describes the new northwest the best!

Dude you are so busted..........along w ur merry band of mal-contents. ALL of ur predictions for post merger DAL have continued to be defeated. Stock up, complaints down, profit up, employee moral at an all time high, pay up, profit sharing up. Analysts predict DAL to continue leading the pact w/ innovated projects, tech leadership..........the list is long and terribly impressive.

Top 25 safest airlines

The list is dominated by international carriers, and JetBlue Airways and Southwest Airlines were the only two U.S.-based airlines that made the top 25 safest list.

Delta Air Lines ranked No. 26 on the list, while United Airlines was No. 31. However, US Airways, Alaska Airlines and American Airlines all ranked in the bottom half of the overall top 60 list.

So toad, your not at the bottom, but surly not at the top! For the most part, what has happened to this industry, has taken us from the record setters to “the bottom half of the overall top 60 list”.
It’s a borrowed safety record you are riding, and you keep bragging about it.

Of course it's not true. You wrote it, so it isn't true.

-Delta's net income for the December 2012 quarter was $238 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, excluding special items1. Results include the $100 million negative impact of Superstorm Sandy on airline and refinery operations.
-Delta's net income for 2012 was $1.6 billion, excluding special items, a $362 million increase over 2011.
-Delta's GAAP net income was $7 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the December 2012 quarter and $1.0 billion for 2012.
-Delta's unit revenues were up 4.3 percent for the quarter and the company's unit revenue gains have outperformed the industry for 21 consecutive months.
-2012 results include $372 million in profit sharing expense, including $63 million in the December quarter, recognizing Delta employees' contributions toward meeting the company's financial goals.
-Delta's adjusted net debt at the end of 2012 was $11.7 billion, a $5.3 billion reduction from 2009.

"not making much money????" Only a billion in net revenue for the year. Again. Which makes you wrong. Again.

"Our December quarter profit caps off a successful 2012 for Delta with strong financial results, industry-leading operational performance, and across the board improvements in customer satisfaction. I want to thank our employees and I look forward to recognizing them next month with $372 million of profit sharing for 2012," said Richard Anderson, Delta's chief executive officer. "We enter 2013 as a stronger airline, with initiatives in place to build on our 2012 success. In the year ahead, we will advance our position around the world and continue to build a better airline for our shareholders, customers and employees."

372 million in profit sharing! Wow! Doesn't sound very pissed to me.

Delta is a good company. Just because you screwed up don't be mad. I'll bet that pilot wouldn't trade places with you. Neither would I.

The real question is why did you guys retire? You could have kept your recall rights. Instead of spending the last 10-15 years of your best wage earning years complaining about the bad deal you got. There are guys that didn't cross working for the D now. They were the smarter ones. You don't hear much about the union from them. The ones I've talked to said joining AMFA was the biggest mistake they ever made.

I don't have a problem with Delta. They send me a nice check each month and Hard up pilot earns it for me. No problem there..The Scabs, no matter where they work is a problem though. The way that safety in maintenance is taken so lightly in the entire industry is a problem.
