The Last Days of Northwest Airlines

The final countdown to say goodbye to Northwest Airlines is underway. I know, its merger with Delta seems to have been a long time in the making (since Oct. 2008, anyway), but it’s finally coming to an end, as a new “super Delta” finally emerges.

Maybe you’ve been noticing things like 80% of Northwest planes are now painted in Delta colors — the rest will change by this Spring.

And in the coming weeks (according to the Wall St. Journal), look for Delta and Northwest pilots to share cockpits for the first time — you might not notice, though: both already wear Delta uniforms. And by the end of March, the two airlines’ ticketing systems will be replaced by a single entity.

Oh, and as you might have expected, Delta’s soft drink of choice prevails over Northwest’s Pepsi — since October, it’s been Coke or Diet Coke.

    We flew on New Years eve this last 2009. We had booked our tickets through Northwest for our midwest part of the flight & then the west coast part we were Delta. Some confusion at the Delta ticket counters & the boarding gates with our NW boarding passes & tickets. The Delta ones were a breeze. We overheard from the steward/esses saying they were happy it was going to all Delta at Midnight. We did miss the pepsi drinks on the planes.
