Well, it's official. Northwest Airlines is no more. It was just announced a couple of hours ago that Delta Airlines is buying NWA and merging to become the world's largest airline, operating under the Delta name.
The experts are saying this turn of events will be sure to raise already high airline fares.
I'm glad the merger finally happened. Hopefully the new Delta will be bigger and better than ever before.

It appears they even have a publicity website up-and-running:
