  1. @Gary: Thanks for the Delta article.

    Delta made a deal with the Department of the Treasury to maintain minimum service levels until October 1. Delta’s requests should be summarily rejected. Have Delta’s executives flown to PIH or IDA – doubt it. Two separate markets. What’s next? Is Delta going to file to abandon EAS flights that are likely now flying with few or no passengers? I think not – those flights are subsidized even if they fly empty.

  2. If I had known Carl Icahn owned Hertz, I would have switched to another car rental company a long time ago. Icahn is the man who single-handedly drove TWA out of business. The thought that I’ve unknowingly given him as much as a dime’s worth of business makes me depressed.
