(Yes, this was a terrible subject line!)

After hanging out in the AA, CO & DL forums (fora??), stopping by the NW forum seems so deadly dull. No campaigns. No threatened strikes. No livid threats against the CEO.

It's really strange

Yes, but there's that heated Spinzel debate.

As much as I like my friends on the Delta board, it's encouraging to be flying an airline with a "boring" board!

May it stay that way!!

Yes, lol, there are the spinzels. And whether front or upper deck is better (although generally agreed upon). Let's see, oh and for critizing others for incorrect wordings (no offense to you FCTSTY). Yea that's about it. Oh NW is looking for concessions from the Unions for about 800 million a year (that's nuttin compared to AA, UA and US.) Strange, but nice.

Hey, you can always go to the other boards to look for your daily dose of tension (or laughs if your insensable.)

Another hot topic is the proper use of topic headings. I noticed that yours did not have a capital letter at the begining and two question marks at the end.

Not very good use of Forum standards.

Also, you could have been more specific in your heading, such as "Are you drinking water with valium in it?" or "Are you all on valium?".

Yep, Northwest forum is prety hot!

Agreed. It's kind of the Midwest of fourms. And we like it that way.

Must be all the calm, friendly MSP-based travelers on this board.

Seriously, this board reminds me of the Minneapolis people I know!

Not exactly.

NW didn't have a major presence at DTW until they acquired Republic Airlines.

O well, NW basically was from MSP, but not for offices then or whatever it was. MSP is still their main hub. DTW is the largest. I know that's odd, but that's the way they say it.

OK. here's a devisive issue. NW literature states that its HQ is St. Paul. Doesn't that slam the Minneapolis side of of MSP??

NW headquarters is actually in Eagan, a suburb. Maybe that literature came from an office in St. Paul. Can't remember whether Eagan was closer to Minneapolis or St. Paul... Anyways, sometimes companies here say the closest major city in place of their actually city in their "about us" section (i.e. United saying it's hq is is chicago, when it is not.) because the major city is well known, while the suburb is not. I find it confusing myself...
