Northwest Strike Update

Well, I was half right about the Northwest strike (which is why you should only believe about half of what I say):  Northwest’s mechanics did, in fact, go on strike, (oops!) but I was correct that their operations have pretty much continued without disruption.  There are lots of mixed reports in the media about flights being late, but it appears that Northwest weathered their first weekend with few problems.  Their weekend schedule is lighter than their weekday schedule, so today is their first real test.  Even so, if you’re booked on a Northwest flight this week, you’re probably in pretty good shape.

  1. I predict you’ll be saying another “OOPS” by Thursday…

  2. Jared, NW also ran their fall schedule change. It’s about seventeen percent fewer flights than the summer offering.
