Do you realize we are only a few short weeks away from changing our clocks forward when DST or Dayling Savings Time begins? And then a few days later we have the first day of spring! I cannot wait to get my golf clubs out and see how bad my game has suffered over the winter.

OK interesting but what has been going on in the past few weeks in the news in “Delta Land” and what other travel stories caught my attention. Let’s take a look.

  • I am sure everyone saw that two Delta FA’s got into a fight that resulted in a flight diversion to Salt Lake and new crew brought on-board. I just have no words over this one. Delta has said they are sorry for the employees’ actions.
  • I don’t have a link on this one but keep in mind that 1MARCH Delta and the Delta pilots will be meeting to talk contracts. I hope Delta yields a bit on its arrogant attitude toward these hard working men and women who deserve to be rewarded for all the cuts they took during the lean years! Keep in mind their pay is well below what it was pre-bankruptcy.
  • Delta is cutting more jobs for CVG. Looks like CVG is going the way of MSP more and more each day. Even though they deny it I think this will mean more and more ATL connections for us all very soon.

So those are the headlines for this month that got my attention. I will be flying Delta a bunch this week so be sure to say “HI” if you see me onboard or in a Sky Club. You can follow where I am in route on twitter as well. – René

  1. I didn’t realize an airport could forgo the TSA in favor of a private firm. Does that mean they still can mandate those naked body scanners?
