No, no, I said if YOU'RE interested, not that I'm interested. I just heard some male FAs talking about it, and thought that there were some yankees who might like that kind of stuff.

Me?, I'm more into this kind of thing...

Hey NWA guys.

Today is the first day that you can sign up for the DPMA thing. Go to the website the union sent us. It takes like 2 minuets and is easy. From what I understand, it is HIGHLY recommended.

I've never had to use DPMA (and hopefully never will) but from flying with guys who have, I have never heard one who did not speak of DPMA in anything but very glowing terms.

LMAO! I wonder if it's the same Redneck fishing as in my parts. Our reel is a Remington.

DPAMA is not about helping yourself. It is about taking a very small part of your check and helping your fellow pilots. It is a great resource to have. At some point everyone will have a medical issue. This is a great filler so that the family does not suffer.

[QUOTE=acl65pilot;519697]DPAMA is not about helping yourself.


The heck it isn`t! Of course it`s about helping yourself. That`s what an insurance policy is all about. You hope that you don`t need it, but be glad that it`s there for you. This isn`t an ALPA thing, it`s a Delta pilot thing, run by Delta pilots for Delta pilots. And oh yeah...unfortunately for me, I had to use it and was glad that I paid in all those funds for my entire career...

Do "new" DAL guys have a separate DPMA fund of their own that does not draw on the established fund?

No it is all one fund.
There is a fear that all of the LTD NWA guys will deplete the fund. I guess we will find out.
