Re: Delta airlines
My sister is a widow of a former Western Airlines, and Delta Airlines employee that retired from Delta. He was a passenger cabin maintenance supervisor, led a group of workers that cleaned up the pass cabins between flights. Delta made his life a bit unhappy when they first bought Western. They told him he would be stationed at Joun Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, Ca., so, he and my sister bought a mobile home in Westminster, 8 miles from JWA. They were the 3rd mobile hime in the park, brand new.
Then, after all this was done, they promptly transferred him to Los Angeles International (LAX), some 50 miles north up the 405 freeway, one of the most traveled freeways in So. Cal. They refused to move him back to JWA. So, for the next 26 years, he drove back and forth in his Volkswagon station wagon, Westminster to LAX, and back. The ONLY redeeming factor, he managed to get a permanent graveyard shift, so he ended up always driving against the traffic.
I have to mail her Delta survivor's ongoing retirement pay forms to their Phoenix offices in the morning, so she can get her deceased retired employee surviving spouse retirement payments sent for another year.
If I have to go some place on an airplane, it is never via Delta.
