Delta Needs To Get A Life

Sat Sep 02, 2000 5:13 am

Gotta love Continental Airlines CEO Gordon Bethune's comments about a possible merger with Delta.

As quoted on, Gordon said, "We're not ever going to merge with Delta. Delta needs to get a life."

LOL, that's pretty good! Gotta give the guy credit, he came this far with the company after frank from eastern screwed it up. Why would he want to merge after all the work he's put into CO.

Yeah, Gordon has done a lot of great things for CO over the past few years. He's really turned the airline around. I think that CO is better than Delta. They are not quite as big, but with the deliveries of the new 767's, they will be able to expand their route map.

What the...

Hey, didn't I write this topic first? Where did it go?

Well, anyways, I think that the full article (look on yahoo) was a pretty good show of what's really going on in this merger monkey business.
