    So you combine at best average Delta service, with really bad Northwest service, and get an airlane that can take you a lot more places with crappy service.

    I can’t wait…..

    I really don’t see how this is bad, only good. Well, not sure if it’s good for shareholders. But for Atlanta, this is great — more business!

    Plus, Delta is the best of the airlines I frequent — Airtran, Delta, US Airways, and American Airlines — by far.
