I'm glad to see these changes coming to NWA. I think Anderson will prove to be an asset to the company, and when finances inprove, I expect to see employee morale go up too!

I think people are going to be surprised at how good NWA will become!

Great artice! Thanks for the link! I like this:

We invented alliances at Northwest because we realized, first and foremost, that in order to gain scope and scale we needed a partner. Likewise, KLM was never going to have a presence in North Dakota, for example. Everything you see at Star and Oneworld are copycat situations.

That copycat part is SO TRUE!

Richard Anderson is a very smart businessman, and speaks like any great CEO should... he can express technicalities in very direct terms.

Too bad Jim Goodwin only has about 1/4 the intelligence (or so it seems from his public speaking).
