Will Oprah be there? "Everyone gets a jet! You get a jet! You get a jet, and you get a jet! Everyone. Gets. A. Jet!"

I think it's DL's secret plan to divest all the unwanted Comair CRJ100/200s

I just got back from my first visit to the DL Museum a few hours ago. I spoke with two people working in the store, including the director, and they are both excited about the FlyerTalk tour in October. They spoke very highly of DL FTer loyalty.

Unfortunately, I'll probably have to miss Thursday and Friday, so I wanted to check it out myself. For those who haven't been, it is quite the experience. ^

Oh... you are such a teaser Canarsie. I will say this - it wasn't OUR idea, the incredible team at Delta pulled this together themselves, and I think they are even more excited about it than we are... OK, maybe just as excited as we are!

Guess everyone will just have to wait until next week:

I will gladly accept a lifetime Plat for Mrs. Italy and myself.

On second thought, I am not sure we should post the announcement at all, atldlff.

After all, how could we ever even hope to possibly top the following ideas and suggestions:

Consequently, we sincerely hope and believe this pending major announcement which could be posted here as soon as next week will amaze and excite many of the attendees of this event once it is posted.

We are currently scrambling on coordinating the best way to make this work as it may involve some major schedule changes but we believe it will be well worth it...

...and yes, what we want to announce is now confirmed and definite as of today.

Please stay tuned...
