The NY Times looks at what’s really going on with delays at Northwest during the strike. The verdict? Uh, well, um, it sorta depends who you ask. Apparently either half the flights are late, or just a handful, or a bunch are cancelled, or just a few are. I think the answer is: the airline isn’t really saying, and nobody else knows for sure. If you have a flight booked on Northwest, check the website to see if your flight is delayed—it might be. But it’s probably not cancelled. Isn’t that pretty much the case every time you fly?
