    If you like a 70 plus hour work week and always working the weekends then you will love it.

    Advice to Management

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Strong history and brand; safety culture; "we can do it" attitude of employees.

    Cons

    History and Brand and People not respected by Delta.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to "get the red out". DL technology is way behind NWA and there does not appear to be a culture of learning from those with something to offer. Asia-Pacific market has been significantly weakened due to DL's lack of attention to service. The "merger" is over - time to fix the people and operating issues.
