I think this is a scare tactic to the airline. At this point I still doubt that the union will strike.

As a result, they can keep their fares lower since t...

RE: NW's Contract With DTW Concerning New Terminal

NW is hardly a "bad guy" in this. They made a smart business decision. Remember, <acronym title="Northwest Airlines (USA)">NW</acronym> is in business not to be nice to all the other airlines, but to MAKE MONEY. Any other airline would have done this if they could. <acronym title="Northwest Airlines...

RE: NW D10 C Class?

I've done World Business Class on both the 333 and D10. The D10 was from BOM - <acronym title="Amsterdam - Schiphol (AMS / EHAM), Netherlands">AMS</acronym> and I found the seats to be fine. You don't have the massage and all the extra jazz on the 333, but I agree the seat was more comfortable. Food...

RE: What Does Y, J & P Stand For?

I remember hearing that Y got its start with Pan Am. Y was for Yankee class. Whether that is an urban legend or not, I do not know.

RE: DTW North Terminal Update

AAAAAAHHHHHHH! Ok, I have to vent. It's either the Northwest WorldGateway, the McNamara Terminal or the Northwest WorldGateway at the McNamara Terminal. Not worldport. It was originally going to be called (by Northwest) the WorldTerminal. Thank you. I feel better now!  <img src="/discussions/gr...

RE: The $6 Billion 7E7 Subsidies, Justified?

Ushermittwoch, Some people don't like big government, myself included. That doesn't mean that I / we don't like government. I think the point of the post you quote was to say that most people, here in the US and abroad, have foolishly accepted the fact that they don't have control over a large porti...

RE: The $6 Billion 7E7 Subsidies, Justified?

NoUFO, I am confused to what your statement "Braniff727, then how come the WTO ruled the tax break is an unfair subsidy that does not fall within free trade rules?" refers to. Was it a previous post? Sorry, I'm starting to get confused between this post and other things I'm doing at the moment. At a...

RE: The $6 Billion 7E7 Subsidies, Justified?

No UFO, "One could argue the authorities have the right to collect taxes to fund services citizens enjoy. But this is totally irrelevant. Boeing received a tax break, other companies did not. Such a tax break is a subsidy in disguise and nothing else." First, one could, but then one could also argue...
