Thankfully, the strike was averted due to a tentative agreement reached at the last minute some weeks ago.

Here's are a couple of articles I penned about DL a short while before , and then after, the deadline, if you feel like reading....

The threat of a DL pilot strike is defintely old news, but WHAT, may I ask does it have to do with DL pilots from India?

well thanks for responding but you've all got me completly wrong.

what I am looking for is for the hoax that a A-Netter posted saying that
DL is prepeared for an upcoming Pilots Strike since they have hired additional
400 indian pilots. it was a good first of April joke.

Certainly a hoax, since Indian carriers themselves can't find 400 Indian pilots, and hence hire American, UK, Russian, Brasilian, Eastern European etc etc pilots....

I know what post your talking about. I believe it was OttoPylit who started it but I cant seem to find it either. I think it was probably deleted because I believe people took it to seriously and it became another bash Delta thread.


Fly Delta!

Was it in non-av or moved there? I remember the post and laughed at how many people thought it was real and how bad the hiring of Indian pilots ould be for safety. What chuckleheads.

Found it...it was in Non-Av or at least moved there.

Wow, good memory! I had to stop and think about that for a second, to refresh my own memory. And you are correct, I do remember starting a thread about it(it was apparently moved to Non-Av) because there was SO much hype on here about the possible strike. I recieved it in an email at work about it and thought it was hilarious enough to post. Didn't really do it for an April Fools joke, it just happened to be around that time.

Someone apparently has re-posted the thread, and being early in the morning(my time), I needed a good laugh over how many people took it seriously...for the first 5 minutes, before realizing that it couldn't possibly be true.

Then again, the sad thing was those that posted who STILL BELIEVED IT!!!! LOL

i did belive it . i have had reservations on DL BSL-PHL so i was very glad to hear that DL will keep operations upright, even if there should be a Pilots strike going on. then when i got back in the evening from work the article was gone. then i realised that it was April 1.
OttoPylit that was an excellence joke of yours!!!!
