Discussed in this thread: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/delta...w-flights.html

I don't think the granting of the SOC does anything by itself. It just gives DL the goahead to completely merge ops. Some things like pilot manuals will cut over right away. It sounds like others, like the phaseout of NW flight numbers and the complete merger of the schedules, will happen over the course of 2010.

A lot of this will be transparent to pax. I'm very concerned about the shutdown of nwa.com and the accompanying mobile site. I hope that doesn't happen until the NW schedule is completely phased out in late 2010. It's better than delta.com even for a wholly DL itinerary.
