The South wins this round
« on: April 14, 2008, 06:54:15 PM »

Delta is acquiring Northwest.


As a former frequent traveler on NW I shed no tears for them going away except that they have
the State of Minnesota and their employees for years in concessions, etc.

The airline industry is/has been a mess for years. There will soon be 3 main carriers in the U.S. with more mergers to come. UAL and Continental, American and ?....... 

This is one company where I will stand next to Aske in the    hate! korprit greed! et al !!!!!    party.

Hmmm ... I'm sitting on a LOT of Northwest FF miles.  It'd be great if Delta honored them.  It'd suck if I had to use them in a hurry on Northwest.

It's the third rail in the airline industry. Nobody wants to screw their frequent flyers.

I hope they route all those Northwest flights through southern hubs so they can teach all them northerners some manners.  Otherwise, its going to be a mess.

On Delta, there is an orderly 'deplane' that occurs, from the front to the back, where gentlemen tip their hats and allow the ladies ahead, and assist them with their overhead bags, sneak a peak at their rumps, etc and so forth.

The Northwest deplane is a frigging free for all.  Huge norsemen wannabe's desperate for a cigarette from rows 36-42 are the first to come barreling down the aisle a fraction of an instant after the wheels touch down, smacking aside anyone in the forward rows, creating a giant vacuum effect.

It's pathetic, really. 

I simply don't see how the passenger cultures will assimilate.
