i still dont understand why DL is buying NW? when NW is more profitable and is run better. NW is smaller with less employees per passenger but makes waaaay more profit than Dl.

It seems it just to bust the unions.

Yep, you got it. In all your wisdom you have precluded that DAL needs to MERGE w/ NWA ONLY to break NWA's union. You must be a very poor 'Money-Maker'

well by all accounts it does seem that NW is a much better run airline than DL . even with NW top heavy managment.

I can only hope all goes well with this AQUISITION.

It won't. This merger was planned years ago..Richard wants to runa non-union airline..so he goes to Delta..hires Dugly to run NWA..promises Dugly to sell out all NWA to Delta..all Delta wants is the Pacific routes and equipment..the NWA workers have been sold down the river..this will not end well

WOW Fletcher if your the type NWeemployess will be having to deal with at DL give me stealin steenland anyday.

It is to break the unions! They have no way of doing it otherwise.

This as other posters have said has been in the works for years.

Get a clue.
