Time travel: Delta and Northwest merger

Lots of news stories out this week about the official merger of Delta Air Lines and Northwest Airlines. And that gave Marie Force, Delta’s Archives Manager, an excuse to poke around the Northwest Airlines site for her regular Friday entry on the Delta blog.

She discovered that ‘Northwest’s many contributions range from the first closed-cabin plane for passengers (in 1926) to the first global airline alliance (with KLM).”  And she posted a link to Northwest’s timeline.
