Delta Connection Pilots Unite

Strength In Numbers

In the "us versus them" world of being a pilot for a Delta Air Lines subisidiary, the past few months haven't been easy -- as the bankrupt carrier has battled with all of its feeder operations in an effort to cut costs. Well, those pilots can rest a little easier today... because the "us" side of that equation appears to have gotten a lot stronger.

Last week, leaders for Comair, Atlantic Southeast Airlines, Mesa Air Group, and Chautauqua Airlines agreed to join forces, to present a united front in negotiations with the Atlanta-based airline... to, as one Comair pilot put it, remove Delta's ability to stir resentment between the regional feeders -- the old "divide and conquer" strategy.

Both the Air Lines Pilot Union and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters are involved in the agreement, the latter representing pilots at Chatauqua.

Time will tell how well the joint bargaining effort will work... but it's hard to deny that there's strength in numbers.
