I have a East Coast to West Coast flight scheduled for december on DELTA. They have filed bankruptcy. From what I hear several companies have done this and been alright. I have decided to book with them and save around $125 on my final ticket. Anyone know anything about this?

So far as I know, Delta has filed for bankruptcy protection. Air Canada did the same a ew years back,in order to buy time to restructure and cut costs. I had tickets with them and worried a bit, but nothing came of it. They reorganized and are still up and running.

Ditto for me...except it was ATA airlines, I was rerouted on other airlines, and all was well. I didn't have to pay anything extra either, which I was thankful for! :)

I flew Delta down to South America about a year ago, right after they declared bankruptcy (I think; did they do it again?).

At any rate, I don't believe it has any affect on the passengers (other than they charged for drinks; which I was not happy about for an international flight).
