Time to catch up on all the latest news about aviation and our Delta Air Lines. Delta jets are still flying packed to the gills (as we all know – right non-rev’s) and passenger load was up just a tiny bit. The key factor is making money. “We” are all putting up with all the changes Delta is making and keep flying. Can’t wait for Q3 number and really can NOT wait to see what is next this year. So on to the news:

  • With Delta stock price this high should we invest (me – NO) is HERE
  • A good piece about the long awaited 717’s from AirTran is HERE
  • A Delta A330 (DL99) had flap issues is HERE and FTC audio is HERE
  • And, the reason to ALWAYS wear your seat belt is HERE
  • Your PNR will never be a GONER again is HERE
  • MORE LAX flights this time to Mexico is HERE
  • New to Delta? This oldie but goodie seems to still work is HERE
  • In 60 seconds what Delta CEO is thinking is HERE
  • Planning on going to the Chicago Seminars? 50 tickets remain is HERE
  • What to do in Gothenburg Sweden (shameless shout out) is HERE

That just about wraps it up for this round. I am going to be flying in and out of MKE, ATL, DTW, & SFO next week so if you see me in a Skyclub by all means come up and say hi and let’s talk about points! Oh, and this is why you don’t walk (or drive) behind a 747 🙂 – René

  1. Delta is one of the largest airlines in the world, serving 160 million customers annually through flights to 327 destinations in 700 countries”….??????

  2. Rene, Since we’re looking at latest news on Delta, any word on Delta international wifi? Last year they said it would be “early 2013”. Well, its not “early” now. BTW, I know you like Gogo. Their stock IPO’d in June at 17 and now its under 11. May be a good buy.

  3. Rene’ – we were in Gothenburg 3 years ago, for a day, off a Baltic cruise. We went to both the botanical gardens and the “fish church”. We skipped Volvo because we’re from Detroit and have seen plenty of auto facilities. On the whole we had a great day there.
