There have been a plethora of PR statements from Delta today not least of which is that SEA-HKG is part of the solidifying of the airport as an official Delta HUB airport. Alaska had better just get out of the way as big brother Delta is taking over. Let the speculation of about just how much longer they can hang on begin!
On to the second big deal about today. Delta is doing a media tour day with a bunch of bloggers including Atlanta’s very own MJ on Travel who is tweeting up #InsideDelta along with the rest of the group. Fun to see the inside workings of Delta. I will be sharing my experience later on when I visit and have dinner with readers in ATL in July (now fully booked up btw).
But back to Seattle. What do you think? Do you think Delta’s plan is to beat up Alaska so much that they just move out of the way or is it a setup for a buy out / merger of the two airlines?- René
