Just like Macy's, if this merger goes through, my business goes elsewhere. Shallow? Childish? Maybe so. But I guarantee you my business WILL go elsewhere.

Laura Liu, I hope you know Russian. The Int. coputer program from '95 at ATL INT is wacky. The boys down there can't figure it out. If anything, Richard you should bring back 'Lord' Nortin to help with INT for Delta. He knew how to make money for Delta INT from 1981 to 2000.

Executives like Richard Anderson and these merger addicts are the new mafia in America. They destroy lives to create big bonuses for themselves. I'm a free market conservative, but this is market manipulation that is bad for the economy. Why is Barry Obama so quiet???

Moving the "Old Boys Club" friends from NWA to Delta .. what forward business thinking from Mr. Anderson. Yes .. this new airline will be full of it .. er um .. I mean innovation! Full of innovation! I am right there with you, Alphascan. I have already reactivated my AA and UAL frequent flyer programs. I just don't see this ending even remotely well and the fact Anderson has planned the demise of NWA for years, and is taking those who helped him accomplish this task with him, is not lost on me. As for those who will no doubt soon flood the thread with "Woo Hoo!! More competition!! Woo Hoo .. Here comes Southwest!" .. please actually research the current climate in the airline industry and really take into your brains how unlikely that will be in the short or mid term future. This move is bad news .. it will not bring in more competition .. it will not lend itself to lower fares and if anything .. we will likely see a precipitous drop in flights in and out of MSP. THis deal is bad for Minnesota consumers - and even more ominous in this economic climate - bad for Minnesota business. People really need to get that fact into their brains and decide to work to stop the deal or get ready to be severely disappointed.

Steve Gorman belongs back at Krispy Kreme. He has bounced around the airlines with a stop at Krispy Kreme after Dasburg left Northwest.

I wonder what's going to happen with the internationl flights from MSP to Tokyo, London, Paris, Amsterdam, etc. I have a strong feeling that this merger will affect MSP the most. Detroit will win these flights.

Let's get it over with. Pull the switch. Drop the trap. Drop the pellets. Pin the target over the heart. Stick in the needle. The giant rubber stamp is already made in D.C. Everything else is going through the motions and window dressing. Why waste taxpayers money in holding any hearings. Goodbye cruel world.

Jesus has smiled down upon his most devoted acolytes once again. May he be praised, and may the hard-working executives continue to reap their bounty, for they are truly kings among men in this fine nation of ours. I pray to Jesus that one day he will smile upon me the same way, as I work hard! McCain '08!!!

ttorbes says: "I'm a free market conservative, but this is market manipulation that is bad for the economy." Yeah, well perhaps some of you "free market conservatives" will finally agree that perhaps we need some anti-trust government oversight to ensure that our economy and society is not ruled by corporate dictators. In some cases, it's probably too late...
