"For 80 years, our customers, employees and partners in Seattle have embraced Delta, and our growth here would not be possible without them," said Mike Medeiros, Delta's vice president Seattle. "The Spirit of Seattle aircraft will proudly bear its name as it travels around the country as a representation of Delta's history in Seattle and a sign of our thanks and commitment to our future here."

80 years of who? When if ever will these D heads stop stealing from NW. Next these guys will be claiming that they came up with the great circle route. It must be awful to have too steal from everyone and then claim you are the one. If not for NW D head would still be a failed Galveston lawyer. Frankie, look what you've done...

Off ur Rx again I see. It is improper after a merger to use the previous Corp names for which products/adventures/routes were used to build the majority of said product etc. Western Air Lines had a huge foot print in SEA and he didn't mention WAL either. The folks of Boeing and the residents of the SEA area love 'The Spirit of Seattle' as well as over 650000 employees working for DAL.

Yeah, yeah. Your carpetbagger chief is trying to lay claim to yet something else he has no claim to. The Sprit of Seattle is union, Delta has no rights to it. Spout your anti union grab there and see where it lands you. But then again... working for dick, surprise landing seem common. Do your talented techs do anything more than line service. How the hell do you guys over heat and blow so many tires, during one of the coldest winter on record?

Poll is in. 700 people. Some retired others transferred to open jobs. No layoffs. And the 700 have had jobs since you threw yours away. I would bet overall they are happy. This is the airline business. Since when does a company keep a station staffed solely to make an individual happy?

Must be why nwa kicked you to the door. They just got tired trying to appease an unrealistic group.

Can't you just the loser malcontents grinding their teeth when they hear that DL has been named by Fortune as the most admired US airline? They juts can't stand the fact that NW/DL has been doing much better since they walked off the job.

True, delta is doing much better in that report. But, just weeks before, delta was listed as more hated than Tabaco companies. I guess it depends on who you are asking... the investor, or the customer.

Tabaco? Try Tobacco
Or maybe you meant Tabasco

How did you even graduate High School, much less sign off a logbook.

Really makes you look ignorant like your buddy spade

By the way ignorant is someone who has not been informed of the subject. I believe you were looking for stupid. That is someone who has been informed but does not comprehend. You on the other hand are stupid. Wine is not..

Thanks for backing me up Spade. However, he did catch me with that mistake. I can't really figure why, but somehow it's just not that upsetting.

You 'pissed' off guys still can't explain why none of your predictions have become a reality.DAL is a 10 dollar stock @ best.........have you checked the price of DAL stock? Mr Anderson will run the AL into the ground then take off w/ a golden parachute..........have you checked out all the hard work our upper Mgmt team, along side mid-Mgmt and front line employees have done & Mr Anderson is quit happy. The employees will hate one another and the merger will be horrific..........have you heard of any labor disputes @ DAL other than the ones you guys trump up? Every Union election post merger has been a major defeat for the Unions. Pay is up, profit is up, benefits are great, moral is high. You guys have shown yourselves over the last 5 yrs to be the biggest sore losers ever.

AW Toad, I like what I see at delta now. However, I could only judge RA from what I saw at Northwest. You make a big deal about RA... I say it's the employees not RA! We at northwest never made better wages then when under RA. But when it came right down to it... RA said never again, and nwa was handed over to doug steenland for its beheading. Maybe RA didn't have the heart, or maybe he just ducked the play for bigger deals too come. I can't say for sure, but in time we will all know. For now... best of luck! but never trust that your hard work is not being considered for less expensive contractors. The game continues in DTW. We'll see how the non-licensed line repairman gig plays out. Stay sharp Toad, it ain't over yet.

I salute yo ole debating partner and apologize for some of my harsher statements. My Dad is a retired Capt for AMR and my oldest brother is a SWA Capt, of about30yrs. He was Navy Fighter Pilot. I have another brother and he and his friends went out to AZ desert about 12 yrs ago and bought 2 DC 3's. One for parts. Used to fly for Parachuters but has had the ole bird outfitted w/ highly sophisticated mapping equipment. Contracted to Govt after Sandy and has flown allot of mapping missions from Tx thru Central Americas. When we get together we slam beers and love to talk industry talk. The SWA Capt has said the Air Tran folks are making things go badly. I am hoping it smoothes out. My friends @ HP still don't fly together w/ their USAir counter parts. UAL/CAL is looking to havesome protracted issues as well. When AA is in the fold w/ HP/USAir it's going to be a powerhouse of an AL. My guess is that merger mania isn't over. Remuors of DAL/Alaska but we have just added more Intl flying and an intense new schd for flying out of SEA for domestic so it doesn't look like us. Alaska makes a ton of money on its own. But thx again for the heads up. If I even so much as smell rotten @ DAL then that means I wouldn't be alone and so it would 1995 again. Employee moral so bad we took DAL from 60 yrs of top tier to 10yrs of bottom tier. Its Miller time. BTW, NO I have never stepped foot in that DC 3 I mean just the way it sits w/ that nose up creeps me out. Ha ha
