We already have like 3 topics going on this subject...why not just wait another 20 minutes so we can be sure?

Why not just post this in one of the existing threads? Until they actually file, we don't need a new one because it's all still speculation.

The geniuses at the Miami FOX affiliate:

"This just in...we have gotten word that Delta Airlines' low-fare carrier Song has filed for bankruptcy protection"

It is even on their website:
ATLANTA -- Song, the low-fare carrier of Delta Air Lines Inc., filed for bankruptcy protection Wednesday in what was seen as a precursor to its parent company's own Chapter 11 filing.

Well, this isn't unexpected but I still find it a bit sad. Hopefully Delta's trip through bankruptcy protection will be successful like Continental's in the early 1990s. This is the end of the old Delta, I hope it's the beginning of a new, better one.
