  • Guys here’s a reminder for you:

    If NWA wasn’t bought buy Delta, they would’ve been bankrupt anyway, they were THIS close! I love NWA too and will always be my favorite American airlines, but Delta didn’t kill people, they just bought a troubled company in order to expand. That’s business, and airlines goes under that category. I agree Delta should have NWA’s logo somewhere on the plane but it’s not like they’re criminals, they saved the employees at NWA by buying their troubled company.

  • @kakajax The thing is, it wouldn’t have even been that hard. Have the Delta widget rotated 60 degrees, and suddenly it’s the triangle pointing to the northwest. This is better than the final nwa livery that pointed to the northeast half the time.

  • @PilotX95 on the contrary, i flew a northwest flight with my brother once and the ppl were very nice and helped us get to our gate (Now granted, I’m not a human GPS system who knows her way around an airport and gets very nervous around crowds easily. i’m disabled. my brother seemed to know his way around sort of…i had to sway him to “pull over and ask for directions” b/c he kept leading us in the wrong direction but with the help of a kind NWA crew member we were lead in the right direction)

  • @PilotX95 DELTA bought Northwest Airlines. As the new owners, Delta’s widget stays. The others were mergers, a combination of two carriers!

  • @ie210 my valuable assets you mean unions and debt? then yes. delta is a non-union company. still is. northwest was union. they had an election for union or non union. the employee’s of both voted non-union. pan am was bankrupt and and delta bought them. delta paid off all of their debts, both domestically and international. so by doing that, delta deserved the right to paint over pan am’s livery. think twice before you speak of facts you do not know about.

  • @Ps3Dino013
    unless your a DL employee, ill shut up. Delta was non-union until the merger with NW. Then everybody was unhappy with the union and voted against it. No, there was no election, they overthrew the union. Then Delta fought and cut employee bennies. And delta did pay off their debts, TO GAIN PA’S ASSETS. company takeovers are not charities events in which one company pays off another guy’s debt. They occur so that they can take whatever good is left of the two companies.

  • @ie210 true, no election was held. i was just using layman’s terms. you seem to be knowledgeable in the situation. about the pan am thing, i was attempting to make the most positive outcome of the situation known. You’re right about the assets, but it is what comes with bailing someone out of bankruptcy. by the way, i am the son of a DL employee. i dont know 100% of whats doing on, but i know more than the average person. i just try to defend delta because people seem so quick to hate on them.

  • @ie210 I like delta because I tell them I have 40 year employee seniority and they treat me very well. 🙂 plus I have a lot of patience when I fly standby. Honestly my favorite airline was continental. I’m a little saddened by the fact they merged with united. I haven’t had great experiences with their gate agents in o’hare.

  • Delta included their logo to face the same saw NW’s logo faced. Watch the video as the tails switch around near the end. They have done a lot for the people of Northwest and Delta combined.

  • @PilotX95 I completely agree. All I can say is this: When the anniversary of the merger comes, they sure better bring back the old livery on a few planes. I would especially like to see it at MSP

  • If you look on Delta’s Wikipedia page at the bottom you will read ” US News ranked Delta Air Lines first in delays for major airlines Delta also had the worst score in the annual Airline Quality Rating Report.”

  • GREAT video ( now a lie of course ) and btw I waited just last night at MIA for a friend’s Delta flight from Atlanta that was supposed to be in originally at 9pm, he landed at 12:25am…they suck.
