The SOC also means that any aircraft still painted in NW livery will have to have the "Operated by Delta Air Lines" "sticker" applied. All "Operated by NWA" "stickers" will come off of NW aircraft already painted in DL livery.

Pre-merger NW and DL pilots will have co-mingled cockpits starting Q1 2010 with the first aircraft type probably being the 757.

Pre-merger NW and DL FAs cannot work together on the same flight until representation issues are resolved. However, come spring 2010, after all FAs have been cross-trained on both NW and DL aircraft, they will be able to work the other's aircraft type, just not together. For example, pre-merger DL FAs will be able to work the JFK-NRT 744 while pre-merger NW FAs will be able to work the 777 DTW-PVG; there just can't be a mix of DL and NW FAs on the same DTW-PVG or JFK-NRT flight until the union issue is resolved.
