Delta says it will be business as usual in Wisconsin and Minnesota
Delta Airlines says it will be business as usual in Wisconsin and elsewhere, after the Atlanta carrier acquired Northwest this week.
Delta's president, Ed Bastian, says the company will cautiously phase in changes over a two-year period.
He says Delta is not planning to downsize the Northwest hub in Minneapolis-St. Paul - where passengers from more than a half-dozen Wisconsin airports go to catch longer domestic and international flights.
If anything, Bastian hopes to expand the hub. But he says no decisions have been made on jobs at Northwest's headquarters in Eagan, Minn.
Bastian says there will be no change in frequent-flier miles, baggage fees will be determined in the days to come, and all Northwest gates will stay open at the Twin Cities.
