The End Of NW And The Beginning Of...........

Thu Mar 02, 2006 10:32 am

If NW does go under (very unlikely) who will be the lucky airline that will pick up the workhorse? The NWA dc-9 -- no 10's, unless the airline resurrects them, but 30's, 40's and 50's -- the 'tank' of the airline industry -- it's just like the post office - goes through rain/sleet/snow, and never stops.

Major maintenance issue -- platinum flyer crams 3 large roller's into one overhead bin and breaks latch. 2nd major issue -- coffee pot breaks, passengers start boiling water in the aisle.

So, new airline forms -- called (for want of a better name) NorthSouth Airline -- makes major improvements in both overhead bins and coffee pots, and serves airports throughout the central US -- feeding to hubs. That airline has new pilots, not very well paid, and flight attendants who speak no English (nor are they attractive or nice) -- but, that airline gets you where you're going, and no matter the weather, get's you to your hub for your west coast/east coast/central america/south america/europe/asian flight

What do we call that airline?

I like the name, AmeriJet, for a new airline name, but that's just me... That lady who wants to start up an airline and base it out of either Pittsburgh or Memphis wants to call it "Victory Airlines." That name just never appealed to me...

Personal hope is that NWA drops the Memphis flying. Builds up Minneapolis, Detroit, and Seattle. Merges with Midwest and Alaska Airlines. Reclaims the title of "the" US airline to Asia. Brings back such routes as LAX, SEA-HKG; LAX, ORD, SEA-SEL; DTW-PEK; MSP, LAX, SEA-KIX..Revamps all cabin interiors, and service standards. Cut domestic capacity that do not provide load factors above 70%, and attempts to serve every pothole in the Mid West, refocuses its fleet and therein on the most profitable O/D markets in the U.S. and international from the U.S. Then eventually resumes service to Australia and New Zealand, finally breaking the United/Qantas monopoly... Best Wishes to all at NWA!
