Obviously, it really depends on the # of flights cancelled. If its a SMALL amount of flights cancelled, and the scabs are "effective", then there'd be little effect on traffic. A middle number could result in additional service by other airlines, but a large-scale failure on NW's part could devastate traffic for the Fall, as other airlines probably wouldn't be able to add service of that particular size.
'Cause you're on ATA again, and on ATA, you're on vacation!

They significantly reduced the price on their flight from AUS-MSP the other day and even though it was a nonstop DC-9 for about $30 less than what I paid on AA, I couldn't be sure the pending strike wouldn't have left me on the ground.

I am a long time NWA ff flyer - platinum for years -- I have reservations for next weekend (alternate plan of driving -- just in case) -- but I have faith that the airline will pull through this one. I have less faith that our human counterparts here will also pull through - suspect they are actually hoping for a strike to watch the so called drama
