    Yes I am and I am not worried.That is a protection that the airline would have to do in order to survive, they are not folding or slowing down operations in the least.

    Well, Northwest is getting ready to do it, as well. Not only that, they just told the striking mechanics "buh-bye" and are hiring non-union workers. On the plus side (for the flyer!), the non-union workers/scabs are mechanics that have been laid off from one airline or another.

    Whee?

    Well I just thought I would throw it out there. I know that in another thread here AMBR mentioned that she had her Delta flight shifted around. Is it Thursday yet.....? :( :)

    I'm flying Delta as well. As Bear said, I'm not worried (well, no more worried than I usually am when I fly). This is purely a business move. The only thing that would suck, is if for some reason, some contingent of their staff decides to get the Blue Flu.

    Pretty much all the airlines are going through this. I believe US Airways also declared within the past year.

    I really fucking wish southwest would set up shop in atlanta. I can see no viable reason for them NOT to, since it's a hub and all.

    I am flying delta. Anyone aware of checkin procedures and such? can i do it online?

    I called them on Monday to verify my flight times (lost the confirmation email in a reformat), and nothing had changed for me.

    I have a family member that is a reservations center manager for SW......

    The reason SW won't fly into Atlanta is they only provide service to the smaller airports. They charge less of a fee to the airline due to their size. SW refuses to pay the larger fees of the larger airports. That is one way they are able to keep the fares down.

    Of course with the cost of jet fuel these days, no ones fares are staying down. I did manage to get a flight, round trip to New York for xmas and New Years the other day.......paid $99 each way. :Spin:

    I'm flying Delta on the way down Thursday. Coming back, all flights were full, so I have to take Air Tran for the return.
