My prediction is that good things are coming around for DAL

Further I would say that good times could be around the corner for most of the legacy and other large airlines out there. Several things have to happen..... no big 9/11 style event.... both mngt and the unions have to understand that pay and work rules must be better BUT its gonna take time maybe even several contracts to see the pay rates we saw just a few years ago , realty is that profit margins can disappear in a minute and it does no good to raise pay 30 percent if it causes the company to loose money once again. And finally mngt needs to value employees....AND employees need to value the company.

There was some CAL v DAL stuff cranking up in another thread. I think they (DAL) have some good times ahead. I don't know about the red tail business. It would be a good place to go even if a merger happens. If I'm not mistaken NW has quite a few retirements coming up in the next 10 years. Anyone know how many?

I see more expansion in the international markets. Mainly Europe and South America, the sale of Comair, merger with another legacy. Ecpanding in the far east is dependant upon merger. I see no significant presents in that arena for at least 5 to 10 yrs. Profitablity in the next few years will mean pay increases based on the current contract and thats all I see in my crystal ball.

That doesn't automatically equate to good times for the employees.
