Comair Flight Attendants Union Votes To OK Strike
|Quoting CainanUK (Reply 1):|
Well, that's yet another nail in the coffin. I knew that the USA would lose one major... I didn't expect it to be Delta though.
|Quoting Skibum9 (Reply 2):|
I wouldn't think that this would put the nail in the coffin for DL, maybe for OH, but not DL. I would think that if the OH FAs strike, DL would just liquidate OH. DL owns the aircraft so they would sell what they could and transfer the flying to one of the other DL Connection carriers. More than likely it would probably be the end of CVG as a hub

The problem is that a strike at Comair would take a huge chunk of revenue away from Delta. Many of Comair's customers connect to DL mainline, so without Comair those flights are toast.
During the Comair pilot's strike, it was estimated to cost Delta $600 million dollars. At that time, DL had enough cash to sustain that type of hit. Today is a different story.
