Just $8 Billion…
…and you could be going home with Delta Air Lines!
I’m not sure how I feel about US Airways’ bid to buy Delta. I guess I was kinda hoping Delta would emerge from bankruptcy and continue operating on its own.
Apparently Delta was not at all interested in US Airways’ proposed merger, so US Airways just proposed buying it instead.
They would still fly under the Delta brand, but the headquarters would likely not move to Atlanta. (US Airways’ home is in Tempe, AZ.) I wonder if that would mean a lot of Atlanta jobs would be eliminated? As someone who has recently gone through a downsizing of sorts recently, I think that would royally suck.
I’ve been able to redeem 25k SkySaver award tickets numerous times for the dates and destinations I preferred. I’ve had super-helpful ticketing agents help me catch a flight when the lines were insanely long. I’ve spoken to a lot of really nice Delta folks on the phone.
I guess I’m a bit of a Delta loyalist.
It will be interesting to see what happens….
