31/1/2010 – Its 2:00am Do You Know Where NWA.com Is?
At 1:56am this morning I clicked on NWA.com to take a final look at Northwest Airlines’ website, when I hit the reload button five minutes later at 2:01am the site was no longer there, redirecting me to Delta.com.
In a few weeks it seems the final traces of Northwest Airlines will be gone forever. The “Big Six” is now “Big Five” This is business, nothing anyone says or does can change the disappearance of a once great Legacy Carrier.
In the next year or two we’ll probably see the “Big Five” become the “Big Four” and once again I’ll find myself watching the death of a storied airline…although for me, I really said goodbye to Northwest Airlines back in May 2008 when I flew my last Trans-Atlantic flight with Northwest Airlines.
Below is a screen shot of NWA.com’s final moments…so…So long…farewell…auf weidersehen goodbye…
