Here's a letter I sent to the Star-Tribune:
Does AMFA remember what happened to Eastern Airlines? If not, they should learn from history, before they're doomed to repeat it. They have two possible outcomes from a strike: either they don't make a dent in Northwest's ability to operate, and render themselves irrelevant, or they succeed in crippling the airline, and ride it down in flames. Neither result is good for them, and the latter isn't good for the rest of us, either.
I've got four trips currently ticketed. Two of them are on Northwest prior to the strike deadline; one is on Midwest just after it; and the last is on Northwest at the end of September. I don't think I'll have problems.
