And here you have the other side of the coin. Sane people are sick of the woke garbage and thoughtcrime policing.

A few organizations are calling for a boycott of Delta. Actual bookings are going up at a rapid rate. So much do that for the first time in a year capacity is a real issue. The boycott seems to be failing.

Dude. You have a serious critical thinking deficit disorder if this is the best logic you can come up with! It is a possibility.....but would prolly be about number 10 or lower on the list of possibilities of why " for the first time in a year, capacity is a real issue"

This places you in the company shill camp. See if you can offer up some better ammunition as to why we have a capacity problem.

We have a capacity problem because bookings are increasing at a greater rate than anyone predicted. With dropping the middle seat rule that capacity issue has probably gone away.

OMG!!!

Seems to be too dificult of a homework assignment for you.

Let me see if Dad can help....

So increased bookings causing capacity problems = therefor the the boycott seems to be failing?

Could the capacity problems be due to :

CDC saying its safe to travel
Spring break
Almost 40 million Americans vaxxed
Plummeting deaths and hospitalizations due to Covid
Covid doing so well No questions asked about it at the 1 and only press presidential press briefing
People sick of lock downs....Covid fatigue
Long weekend
Delta botched UNA status
Delta misjudged the recovery
Mismanagement of currencies
.....and prolly the biggest....The media isn't 24/7 in your face about how we are all gonna die and it's "Cheetos fault"

These are all possibilities for why we have a capacity problem.....demand is up and should continue up compared to last year. So, for you to take to position that the "boycott seems to be failing" (whether true of not) has virtually very little to do with the capacity problem. You have taken 2 disparate "factoids" and derived a possibly correct answer...but your answer (even if true) has almost nothing to do with the capacity problem.

Points?? What points do we need? The company decided, from the very beginning of negotiations before COVID that they didn’t even want to negotiate! They pushed this MOAD before VEOP and didn’t even consider SILS. The meltdowns over the last few holidays are solely on management and their desire to beat the pilots into submission and have us grovel for our jobs by giving up everything we’ve worked for over the years.

The woke garbage didn’t “save” us from a boycott. If you think that then you are delusional. Additionally, if someone out of the blue decided to extort you personally unless you do their bidding, would you?

This is about what’s right, not bowing down to extortionist, Marxist bullies based on a complete lie concerning a voting law that absolutely IS NOT suppressing voting rights of any person, whatsoever.

If Bastion really believes in punishing GOP politicians then he can pull up stakes at one of the best placed and advantageous hubs and move operations to Evansville, IN (no offense to the fine folk in Evansville.) That’ll teach ‘em - hurt the very people who support our business - again, based on a lie of what this law has accomplished. MLB in all their wokeness is hurting the very people they claim they want to protect, all because of a lie.

I don’t believe in boycotts from any side. I also don’t believe that a corporation should be publicly involved in politics. Stay neutral.

So you are saying the boycott is killing our bookings or not working? You seem to be making my point! I will stick with the boycott is not working and in fact is having zero impact on our bookings relative to other airlines. Everyone knows the things you mention, however bookings are coming back even faster than expectations given those issues.

I’d be surprised if the middle seat is a factor anymore. Every airline is maxed to capacity and fares are high, even on the LCCs.

99% of the public has no clue on the “boycott” or the Georgia voting law controversy.
