Why? For continue to allow the law that Delta is about to use
to emerge from bankruptcy with a market cap that will be
larger than Southwest’s. WHAT!!!???
They screwed their pilots and dumped their pension on who?
Us. That’s right. US (the taxpayers).
Why do we allow companies to rewarded for declaring bankruptcy
by creating an airliner larger than Continental, American, United,
and we continue to allow the near-monopoly to continue in Atlanta.
Nice going Congress.
Check out what the executive pay and bonuses are about to be. Because this companies is expected to turn in a full year profit of $850 million. Only Southwest has a chance to making more and current earnings estimates on Wall Street say it will be close.
If you think this is wrong and you can fly a competitor to Delta, do so.
If you choose to fly to/from KATL, Fly Airtran when you can.
Southwest did it the right way, Delta did not.
