I'm sure there is a lot of good information buried in this 100,000+ page thread. Unfortunately, no one will ever see it, because they don't have the time to go through 100,000+ pages.

I go to other airline forum websites to get my Delta news. There is no way to get it here on APC. For other airlines, if I see a thread title that interests me, I click on it and read the news and discussion related to that title. On the Any "Latest & Greatest" at Delta thread, I have no choice to but to read about whatever happened to be posted most recently, which is typically nothing important. It's a huge waste of time.

Even giving Delta their own sub forum, like American, United, and Southwest would be acceptable. But having one obnoxiously large thread with hundreds of different topics, and a whole lot of junk bantering back and forth is really just a waste.

Please close the Any "Latest & Greatest" at Delta thread and start posting individual topics like every other airline on this forum.
Oh hellz no! It may be an effed up thread, but it's our effed up thread!

C'mon...it's kind of like a soap opera. You can jump in anywhere and pick up the story line.

As an April Fools Day joke, I closed that thread once. I thought there would be an uproar, but I got nothing from nobody, not even from the most outspoken of the keyboard warriors!

What the pho, I thought to myself. Maybe I'll close it again .... at random times and unannounced.

It is inconceivable that we would ever second guess our dear leader....

Your order is out of whack.

1. Delta
2. Cargo
3. Majors
4. Regionals

Guys went out, watched the sun set, connected with their kids, connected with their spouses, went to bed on time, slept better... then you reopened it and they all fell off the wagon.
