Re: Delta plans to emerge a "smaller" carrier

In most states it takes the company to reject the initial claim. then the state reviews but it usually takes the company to try to fight it to get denied

delta could say this was voluntary and be fighting them. other states maybe reject deltas objection and they get unemployment?
