Until then NWA pilots still operate under many of the old rules - which is highly advantageous to the new Delta.

And by the way, I'm not kidding. That's why we NWA guys make fun of "bid period 5."

...And they had to choose 5 because three (3) was already taken by the book of armaments to operate the Holy Hand Grenade.

You get 12 days off in a 30 day month and 13 days off in a 31 day month. The lines however are initially built to 11 and 12 days off and then after all bids have closed crew scheduling adds the 12 or 13 day where it suits them.

Isn't the DL Reserve Guarantee only 70 hours? It's 75 in the old NW contract.

Hey. I just thought of something really important.

Being an employee of Northwest, the ONLY major airline that does not have a sponsorship with a sports team, do you guys (Old Delta) get tickets to the Mets or the Braves games or the Jazz games in Utah?

It will really be good to see the "company" logo on something other than a garbage bag behind the backstop of one of the cheapest teams in MLB. (Minneapolis Metrodome)

I'm just thinking that they might throw some spare tickets to the "poor" pilots on some of their layovers and I know NWA would never have done anything like that. If so, in my mind, this merger is the greatest.

Sure you do!...

And FedEX gives us tickets to the Redskins games and all the F1 races...it's really great. Too bad we lose our "dicount" shipping the day we retire

New,

The former "Delta Center" in SLC is now called the "Energy Solutions Arena".

DAL was in dire financial straits when the previous contract ended and did not participate in the naming rights auction process.

However, periodically there are seats available through the SLC Chief Pilot's office at reduced rates for Jazz games.

Also, sometimes the Delta Employees Credit Union in SLC had reduced rate ski tickets for sale at local areas. I don't know if they still have them.

I don't know if this is true this year, but in the past anyway your DAL ID card will get you a significantly reduced price on a ski ticket at Deer Valley.

We do get reduced rate tickets to the Atlanta Symphony and the High Museum of Art, if you're into that kind of thing.

These guys are interested in the manly games of football, baseball, hockey, skiing and apparently, passing certain organic molecules across gas-permiable membranes of the aveolae.(BTW, Capn, it's SINsemilla, meaning "seedless"). Oh and, Justdoin', with interests like symphony and museums I suspect you perhaps live in Virginia "High"lands?...Midtown?.....hmmmm......(just kidding)(they might be interested in that "High" Museum of Art ...fur sure, dude..!)
