Northwest employees put on new Delta uniforms today

Northwest Airlines passengers should notice changes this week as the airline continues its integration with Delta Air Lines.

Almost 40,000 airline employees will put on new Delta uniforms this week, “one of the first outwardly visible signs that the two airlines are now one,” according to a Delta press release. The employees include pilots, flight attendants and gate and ticketing agents.

More changes happening this week: The airlines will unveil new food offerings, new in-flight video entertainment and a new in-flight magazine.

“We’re working hard to integrate every aspect of the travel experience,” Delta CEO Richard Anderson said in the company’s statement.

    I flew on NW today and noticed the new uniforms. They seemed pretty sharp to me. Maybe because they were all brand new. Also noticed that peanuts are back for free and everyone got a whole can of soda instead of 4 oz. on ice.

    As far as service during the merger I’ve not noticed any issues. Things were far more negative during the bankruptcy with many crabby employees but the last year things have been pretty good from my perspective.
