An Airline by any other name . . .

I wasn't going to comment on the most viral story since last week's home-made weather balloon, and yet I find myself propelled (no pun intended) to my computer to add just one more comment to the noise.

Isn't it interesting, that in virtually every account, the errant pilots are identified as Northwest Pilots, and the flight that overshot the Twin Cities as Northwest Flight 188?
It is clear that Delta, the biggest airline in the world, who became that big by gobbling up Northwest, wants no part of this.
Delta, Northwest's owner, the same airline that can't wait to erase every last vestige of Northwest identity from the public view, is not identified until the ninth paragraph of the story, if at all.
I just find that interesting.
P.S. I guess this event proves I really do live in "flyoverland" after all. Sorry, this time the pun is intended.

You know Anne, that was the first thing that entered my mind when I heard the news broadcast.
