Have these been streamlined yet? Or does anyone have an idea of when they will be? It'd be pretty nice to have the same benefits on "each" airline, considering they are now one-ish.

Not completely streamlined yet. Look for that by summer. Right now DL/NW people have to list by phone and use a paper pass (ZED ticket...no charge) on each other's system. Both groups are status quo as far as their own systems.

So far at least at DL connection carriers (well, non-wholey owned at least) we don't have anything official for NWA (aside from the old ZEDs, etc). Can mainline employees use their buddy passes for each other yet?

Mainline cannot have buddy pass riders fly on opposite metal yet.
Only people in their profile have this benefit (parents, spouses, dependents).

That is because of how NWA handles NRSAs traveling in F class, versus the DL version.

I like DLs much better...

Hey now, no need to be bitter over this. It wouldn't make much sense for DL employees to be able to fly First on NW when NW employees can't even do it without paying. NW employees being able to fly F on Delta indicates that after the merger, everyone will be able to fly F for free unlike NW's system where you have to pay. This likely means that they'll be adopting Delta's policy.

In this economy I wouldn't bet on that. Anything is up for change, including DL's present system. It may end up being a hybrid of both airlines.

It's possible, but I just don't see Delta management being like that. Delta has treated it's emplyoees well, and taking this benefit away would crush moral, and ultimately affect the customer in a negative way.

As someone who has benefited from DLs pass policy for many years, I actually wouldn't mind seeing a situation where non-revs had to pay a little bit to ride up front. At least I wouldn't be behind the S2 family of 4 who really couldn't care less where they sit on that trip to HNL. AA has been doing this forever as well and it keeps first class for the people that really want it.
That said, I sorta disagree with CV880s assessment and agree with Evan767...I think this change would be a VERY hard sell for the senior Delta folks and would crush morale at a time when it's very badly needed. DL has bigger fish to fry right now without having to worry about milking more money out of its employees (or at least that's how it would be seen).

I would like to know however when retirees and buddy pass riders will be able to fly on the whole network. Anyone heard anything or have a clue?

What I'd rather see Delta do before implementing a charge to fly F is increasing the annual charge of $50. Seriously, $50 is one hell of a deal. We would happily pay $300 for the benefit. (Don't get any ideas DL)

Sometime around May, my brother would like to know this as well as he's a yield-fare S3B out of LAX. He's been dying to go to BKK.

A DL agent stuck me in a middle seat going ATL-DTW when there were both aisle and windows open. I guess I've been treated badly too... I believe I sent you a PM regarding why DL employees cannot travel in F or C on NWA. We, as NWA employees, are charged when we ride in those classes.

Twice I flew IND-DTW just to fly on a NW DC9
Because I LOVE THE DC9 no matter what anyone whines over about em'. Wussies!!
The first time the agent at the gate told me he thought that F was full but if 1C was open take it, otherwise take any seat open.
The second time I flew I was in the last row in Y and happy with that. When the flight attendant came back she had the paperwork in her hand and I was hoping she wasn't coming to kick me off.... She asked my name and when I told her she said "There's a seat up front for you if you like."
I did like. Quite nice rides those DC9's. I used to take them all the time to CVG when I worked for Skyway Airlines, we had a kick @ss counter to counter agreement with all the airlines except Delta mainline, strictly ID90's there.
- DC9's and the BAE146's, sweet rides as well.
