New US "buttons"

I haven't officially seen one yet, but as rumored by an HP pilot they should be coming soon...

One will be a US button that says "Make Delta My b*tch" which is a counter to the "Keep Delta My Delta Buttons" which is very harsh and mean but it made me laugh... the ironic thing is none of the pilots or US/HP employees really care for this merger to go through either. They should be out within the next couple weeks.

The other button that is rumored (but not quite as substantiated as the first button's rumor) is a button saying "US Airways and Delta: Owned and Operated by America West.

Anyway while kind of cruel, they are humorous I thought, no matter your opinions of the merger.

I guess we'll see within the next couple of weeks if either of these buttons comes out.

That is misrepresenting the company and leads to termination of said job. If this really does happen, I would be very surprised to see HP/US have ZERO class in this whole thing. This isnt high school anymore, ya know....

Oh please, all this complaining about US having some fun with this is "crap." The complaints about "no class and decorum" went out the window when the Delta people all started complaining and attacking US as a "crappy carrier that doesn't deserve us."

This is just a poke in the eye at their parochialism. One of the fun things about US is that it doesn't take itself seriously and its people are easy-going and not uptight. I'd love to see a button-war between the two carriers, especially done with a little humor.

That was the reason I quit flying US Airways a decade ago (as a gold level FFer at the time) and switched all my flying to DL. US Airways didn't take their job of transporting me seriously by treating me poorly. The employees just didn't seem to give a sh** about the customer. Just my personal experiences.

I will be one of those platinum premium international business customers who will find a new preferred carrier if US Airways takeover is successful. I have no deep emotional attachment to DL, just an appreciation for their service and convenience over the years. I am sure that AA, CO, or UA will have no problem in giving me comped status for the first few months of a year until I build up status to their top level. I have no desire to fly on a LCC on a regular basis, which US Airways has declared is their corporate philosophy.

I don't know why the Delta folks take themselves so seriously. . . all the metrics show an airline in decline/collapse. They certainly didn't withhold the US bashing when US was in dire trouble a few years back -- going so far as to court away customers at some airports.

But now their own airline is in collapse while US is resurgent, and suddenly it's offensive for US folks to parlay a bit and poke fun at the mighty, perfect Delta. . .

I think it was the people on the other side who made it personal. Most US employees that I know are waiting to see how things turn out and looking for information about how the merger would impact them.

Bull. Delta did not attempt to take them over and destroy their company. Delta left them alone. That's a concept Dung Parker (and you) can't seem to grasp.

Besides, Delta is in no way, shape, or form on the verge of liquidation, like US was. That's a fact, whether you want to except it or not.

No, please keep it up. It shows everyone exactly why Delta wants no part of people like you.

Delta is insolvent. Chapter 11 allows it to avoid having its assets repossessed after it lost the ability to repay its bills. Delta is indeed on the verge of liquidation or it wouldn't be in Chapter 11.

you must hate Southwest and Jetblue then

Southwest and JetBlue compete on their own merits, and don't have the smug superiority I'm seeing from the DL folks and that others have seen for years.

Delta wants no part of people like you

Exactly. I'm a paying customer, and Delta's efforts to repel paying customers have put them into their current sorry state. Mixing misplaced pride and nostalgia into that situation has created a situation with no good options for them.

No I didn't -- I knew exactly what you meant. Unfortunately for you, Delta isn't a club or a family, it's a business. A business that's in trouble.

I'm not threatened at all. How could I be? I am not employed by any competitor of Delta, and I am actually a customer of that carrier from time to time.

It's not a religion, it's business. The DL employees and fans need to start thinking that way -- I guarantee the creditors and other constituents are.
