DELTA'S PILOTS CLIPPING THEIR OWN WINGS

Now, there's enough blame for Delta's problems to spread among everyone at the company; but Delta's pilots are nucking futs. The highest paid pilots in the industry, they refuse to do anything to help Delta during its bankruptcy. What are they going to do when Delta goes under and they have no jobs at all! I certainly won't shed one fucking tear for them.

A strike threat by Delta Air Lines’ pilots, following a standoff with management over proposed wage cuts, has raised the prospect of the first shutdown of a major U.S. airline in seven years. At stake is the carrier’s survival — and a potential travel nightmare during the upcoming holiday rush.

“It’s doomsday if they go through with the strike — for everybody,” said Ray Neidl, airline analysis for Calyon Securities.

Delta agreed with that assessment, saying Monday that a pilots strike would be “murder-suicide” and in effect put the carrier out of business.

The unions are going to do to Delta what they did to Eastern Airlines. Remember Eastern Airlines? Exactly.
