Anyone Else?? If so, any preparations you are doing to ensure you don't literally miss the boat!?!
I would not lose sleep over the threat of a pilot strike at Delta. The pilots know very well that (1) a strike right now would be pretty much the end of the line for the company and (2) ALPA's policy would require that they start over at the bottom of the seniority ladder -- which means flying the smallest jets for the least pay -- if they go to another airline. The union is rattling sabres in an effort to get a better deal, but a real strike is not going to happen.
If they walk, they will walk forever from the last job that they had at Delta. Pitty the fool who walks since you just put yourself on the unemployment line.

Tentative agreement has been reached so hope that helps. My "Delta" tickets aren't until Nov but I know it must have been frustrating for those of you with flights in the near future. Hope it's smooth flying AND sailing!
