Of course, there's been a great deal in the media about Delta's financial woes. A couple of months ago, several DAL pilots said on this forum that they thought bankruptcy was inevitable.
Yet a recent AJC article quotes a pilot who said that, after Grinstein's personal appeals to pilot groups, a deal between DALPA and the company is more likely, even as the union begins preparations to enter Section 6 talks on a new contract.
That article is linked here: http://www.ajc.com/business/content/business/delta/0304/26grinstein.html
I'm wondering if the DAL employees on the forum still feel bankruptcy is inevitable. And if so, when do you think the company is likely to file? Do you find any reason for optimism at all?
I remember the days, even in my 23-year lifetime, when Delta was a truly first-class airline: Employees with lucious Southern accents delivered "service and hospitality from the heart," as C.E. Woolman put it. Ah, for those days again.
