I first flew on North Central Airlines.
Then the routes were taken over by Republic Airlines.
Then the routes were taken over by Northwest Orient Airlines.
They shortened their name to Northwest Airlines.
Now they're merging with Delta, which is looking more like a takeover, as Northwest will cease to exist.

That's not what I care at lot about. What really steams me is that Delta is NOT continuing the WorldPerks Visa card program because they have an exclusive contract with American Express. So now the only way I can earn miles is with an Amex, which isn't accepted at NEARLY as many places as Visa.
Oooo...American Express...I'm really impressed. Give me a break!
I think maybe I'll start looking at a different airline for future travel.
