NO END TO COMAIR PILOT STRIKE IN SIGHT...
Words from Delta President and Chief Operating Officer Frederick Reid
show that Delta is playing hardball, and if Comair pilots don't accept
the current contract, Comair could become a former airline. According
to Reid, the settlement will make Comair's pilots the highest-paid in
their industry. If they chose to reject it, he says, "their action
will, regrettably, force Comair management to take further steps to
minimize the economic impact of the unfortunate work stoppage."
Just prior to AVweb's deadline, the pilots rejected the offer.

...AND AIRLINE COULD FOLD BEFORE PILOTS DO
Comair has already cut 2,000 employees through layoffs effective
today, and has removed 17 aircraft from its fleet, some of which are
being sent to other Delta Connection airlines or returned to the
manufacturer. In addition, Delta announced the introduction of service
to Cincinnati by ACJet and, earlier last week, added a new partnership
with American Eagle to the Delta Connection services.

NOTE: AVweb's NewsWire <http://avweb.com/n/?20a> contains a few
more details and some comments from Comair's striking pilots -- as
well as some odd repercussions of the strike, specific to AVweb...
