transcripts : January 27, 2003


InHoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:30:33 PM)
What's the good news?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:30:36 PM)
OK

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:30:48 PM)
the owner of a mobile billboard company

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:30:54 PM)
and his partner are PMs

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:30:57 PM)
will do it free????

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:31:00 PM)
and they are willing to work with us

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:31:03 PM)
not quite for free

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:31:08 PM)
ok back on topic what was done...what can we do

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:31:11 PM)
but if we decide to go with them

fsu69 (Jan 29, 2003 9:31:12 PM)
maybe offer them some miles

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:31:19 PM)
and do the MoblieBBS

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:31:30 PM)
they will do it very inexpensively

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:31:42 PM)
but there are a few caveats

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:31:43 PM)
first

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:31:48 PM)
looks like our purse can go up to $3000

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:31:54 PM)
we need to do it in more than one city

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:31:58 PM)
so not just ATL

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:32:03 PM)
it would be NYC

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:32:04 PM)
BOS

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:32:06 PM)
CVG

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:32:09 PM)
ATL

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:32:12 PM)
FLL?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:32:17 PM)
perhaps

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:32:22 PM)
they would tail it on to other business

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:32:24 PM)
not CVG.... do people there have an option ?

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:32:25 PM)
(not being a homer)

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:32:27 PM)
when they are in the cities

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:32:40 PM)
the idea is to get publicity

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:32:47 PM)
and these things turning up around the US

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:32:49 PM)
agreed

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:32:54 PM)
would certainly do that

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:32:59 PM)
definitely DFW then, with AA all over the place?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:33:09 PM)
and the nice thing is that it would be relatively random

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:33:17 PM)
Can it sit in front of leo's office?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:33:19 PM)
We would alert the press

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:33:33 PM)
and have TV coverage there in each city

I LOVE EWR (Jan 29, 2003 9:33:43 PM)
would the press care as much as we do?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:33:47 PM)
the only place where I think it would work best on a certain day

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:33:47 PM)
How much $$$ are we talking about ?

ak (Jan 29, 2003 9:33:52 PM)
how much would it cost?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:33:59 PM)
is right out side of the Board meeting

InHoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:34:06 PM)
I think NY is key since DL is asking Wall Street to trust them

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:34:11 PM)
cost depends on when where and where they will be

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:34:20 PM)
but we have enough to do a few cities now

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:34:25 PM)
In front of NYSE

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:34:32 PM)
or their annual meeting

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:34:34 PM)
eye fly...give us ball park cost

bareflanks (Jan 29, 2003 9:34:48 PM)
no billboards in front of NYSE

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:35:00 PM)
the cost for creating a reusable sign is around $1000

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:35:04 PM)
When we get a break, can you briefly explain the workings of a "mobile billboard"?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:35:09 PM)
maybe less since they will work with us

obscure2k (Jan 29, 2003 9:35:11 PM)
how about t shirts at the annual meeting

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:35:24 PM)
one of them was hoping to be here tonight

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:35:25 PM)
why not in front of NYSE

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:35:28 PM)
but I guess he's not

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:35:33 PM)
either would work

bareflanks (Jan 29, 2003 9:35:35 PM)
O2K....good idea

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:35:39 PM)
security

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:35:45 PM)
but the annual meeting would be most embarasing

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:35:56 PM)
so $1000 will get us 4-5 cities ?

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:35:58 PM)
It's mobile - it drives around...??

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:36:06 PM)
the cost of each city would likely be under $500 if we did it with another project

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:36:12 PM)
yes

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:36:13 PM)
get this

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:36:16 PM)
around and around

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:36:22 PM)
in front of the terminal

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:36:23 PM)
all day

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:36:28 PM)
does that mean our advt on one side and another on the other?

obscure2k (Jan 29, 2003 9:36:31 PM)
t-shirt could say, DL how could you?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:36:34 PM)
like they are circiling for a landing

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:36:39 PM)
what do you mean another project

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:36:43 PM)
not bad Obs

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:36:44 PM)
Terminial only inflames the flyers...

bareflanks (Jan 29, 2003 9:36:50 PM)
airport authority might move us out

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:36:56 PM)
they make their money by running these bbs

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:37:00 PM)
Board room or NYSE hits DL where it counts

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:37:00 PM)
and if they are in the city

obscure2k (Jan 29, 2003 9:37:14 PM)
along with bumper stickers in DL lots saying, DL, how could you?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:37:15 PM)
they have little additional expense getting the truck and driver there

fsu69 (Jan 29, 2003 9:37:27 PM)
wonder what it would cost for an Wall street Journal add?

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:37:27 PM)
do they think that they can circle airport/

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:37:33 PM)
way too much

bareflanks (Jan 29, 2003 9:37:46 PM)
o2k...how could you not specific enouth

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:37:46 PM)
ok what do we need to do next to get this done?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:37:52 PM)
DK did you post radio cost when I was locked out?

paradocs (Jan 29, 2003 9:37:55 PM)
Obscure2K I love it

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:38:01 PM)
should we send someone ideas for the billboard ?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:38:02 PM)
Bruce will serve as treasurer

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:38:07 PM)
we will need copy

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:38:15 PM)
is anyone a copywriter?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:38:19 PM)
by profession?

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:38:20 PM)
i wasgiving radio rates when i was kicked out

Diver90 (Jan 29, 2003 9:38:23 PM)
Ideas - NY Shareholders Meeting - Launch of Song Air - End of February when everyone's status runs out...

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:38:34 PM)
OK lets focus

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:38:39 PM)
should it paridy the new "song" name... This song has a sour note...??

Diver90 (Jan 29, 2003 9:38:39 PM)
Marketing here

paradocs (Jan 29, 2003 9:38:46 PM)
this may be obvious but can't everyone double their pledge?

bdschobel (Jan 29, 2003 9:38:50 PM)
Shareholders' meeting in NYC April 25.

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:38:53 PM)
yep.... lets have a plan of action for billboards and radio

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:38:54 PM)
DL could you please post privces again?

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:38:57 PM)
song just dilutes us

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:39:00 PM)
Is there the possibility to purchase the DL Medallion address database, as certain credit card companies do?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:39:05 PM)
exactly

747-400 (Jan 29, 2003 9:39:06 PM)
i dont think that would be good....Song is kinda seperate

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:39:16 PM)
do you want me to give wsb rates?

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:39:21 PM)
yeo ATL

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:39:23 PM)
we can't afford a mailing list

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:39:27 PM)
yes please do

obscure2k (Jan 29, 2003 9:39:31 PM)
I still like: DELTA, HOW COULD YOU? Blanket airports with bumper stickers, have the slogan on tshirts at the shareholders meeting. Perhaps, media will start asking what it means

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:39:32 PM)
$1000 per spot during Clark Howard

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:39:40 PM)
$1000 per spot on Boortz

bdschobel (Jan 29, 2003 9:39:40 PM)
Maybe we can afford a mailing list, but not the actual mailing!

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:39:52 PM)
we need to hit airports and stockholders meeting notify the press and prey we get coverage

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:39:53 PM)
:-)

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:00 PM)
$1300-1400 per spot for morning drive (5am-8:30am)

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:03 PM)
Remember this is all for press

andymo99 (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:04 PM)
Maybe Tepper will give us a list for free.

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:05 PM)
which one is more popular? and is this for a 1 time spot?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:07 PM)
they need to do the work

Diver90 (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:11 PM)
Could we team up with The Ticket and do an e-promo of our billboards...

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:17 PM)
we can't afford a blanket ad campaign

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:19 PM)
will boortz or howard bring us on as a topuc

I LOVE EWR (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:24 PM)
i think it would be a lot easier if someone has an in at a large media company

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:28 PM)
should we all plan a call-in to wsb on specific day/time rather than buy ad???

LexPassenger (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:29 PM)
No.

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:32 PM)
remember that would give us 2 spots

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:38 PM)
that's all we can afford

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:38 PM)
i think the ticket is in with us

LexPassenger (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:38 PM)
No to mikey

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:46 PM)
see how the US cockroaches got good publicity

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:48 PM)
Clark Howard also has an Etravel newsletter, goes to 54,000 Atlanta subscribers $1500-2000 per appearance

fsu69 (Jan 29, 2003 9:40:58 PM)
how about on the PBS broadcasting channel

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:41:17 PM)
DL do you have any other rates?

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:41:17 PM)
I also posted the AJC rates on the bulletin board

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:41:21 PM)
lex..no to the ticket or to boortz and howard

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:41:23 PM)
I mean ATL

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:41:26 PM)
but i can post them here again

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:41:32 PM)
please do

LexPassenger (Jan 29, 2003 9:41:32 PM)
boors and howard

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:41:34 PM)
boortz doesn't like delta

fsu69 (Jan 29, 2003 9:42:02 PM)
or on the Discovery Wings Channel

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:42:04 PM)
ATL could you post your rates?

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:42:05 PM)
one quarter page ad: $14,355 on a Mon, tues, wed, or thurs

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:42:10 PM)
ouch

747-400 (Jan 29, 2003 9:42:16 PM)
what paper?

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:42:18 PM)
$14,690 on fri or sat

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:42:19 PM)
AJC

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:42:21 PM)
ok...how much do we need to do the billboards..we have abou2 2k pledged

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:42:29 PM)
$18,541 on Sunday

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:42:38 PM)
we have about $2500

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:42:43 PM)
maybe a bit more

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:42:49 PM)
and need

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:42:51 PM)
considering some pledged more

bareflanks (Jan 29, 2003 9:42:54 PM)
what about a billboard at Hartsfield in baggage claim

747-400 (Jan 29, 2003 9:42:57 PM)
what about web ads?

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:42:58 PM)
looks like it is down to the billboards unless any of the ATL radio folks have us on as an interesting topic

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:43:00 PM)
i'm in media sales, so i can help with this

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:43:02 PM)
for the $2500 we could do several cities

vasantn (Jan 29, 2003 9:43:09 PM)
I'm with all of you and I'm more than happy to contribute financially, but I have a stupid question. Who is our target audience with this "blitz"? Is it DL management? Non-FT Medallions? The general public?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:43:14 PM)
we would have to tie it to a web presence

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:43:19 PM)
Press

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:43:24 PM)
press only

Middle_Seat (Jan 29, 2003 9:43:26 PM)
DELTA HOW COULD YOU sounds like a clever advert for the company. This project is guerilla marketing, which means you need the media to pick up on it and spread your message for free. Billboard needs to refer folks to a website, which has the info.

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:43:29 PM)
we want press attention

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:43:32 PM)
i think it needs to be a grass roots effort

bdschobel (Jan 29, 2003 9:43:40 PM)
In my opinion, the only real audience is the news media, which hopefully will cover the story.

747-400 (Jan 29, 2003 9:43:46 PM)
will the media be sympathetic tough?

747-400 (Jan 29, 2003 9:43:48 PM)
though

vasantn (Jan 29, 2003 9:43:49 PM)
Why would the press care? I'm playing devil's advocate here.

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:43:49 PM)
very focused and carefully planned

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:43:50 PM)
someone go register DeltaHowCouldYou.com before what's his name does

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:43:55 PM)
At the airport only hits travellers - they're not the target

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:43:58 PM)
business issue

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:44:06 PM)
uncle leo hates bad press

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:44:06 PM)
Delta is destroying itself

andymo99 (Jan 29, 2003 9:44:09 PM)
with war imminent, the press won't likely care.

obscure2k (Jan 29, 2003 9:44:16 PM)
do it now, RVBOOS

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:44:22 PM)
they only care if we bring out the implications to the local economy, business, etc

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:44:25 PM)
I think we've been through this guys

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:44:27 PM)
i'm not web savvy enough or I would

bdschobel (Jan 29, 2003 9:44:30 PM)
That's a legitimate concern. We have to make our story interesting.

vasantn (Jan 29, 2003 9:44:31 PM)
Exactly my point, Andy. I don't think they would care anyway.

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:44:33 PM)
but if we get press--we win the battle

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:44:33 PM)
the consensus was that the press does care

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:44:40 PM)
if the story is compelling

Art234 (Jan 29, 2003 9:44:47 PM)
We don't want to sound like a bunch of whiners.

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:44:49 PM)
and I think we can make it compelling

fsu69 (Jan 29, 2003 9:44:53 PM)
something is missing an edge to catch the eye

747-400 (Jan 29, 2003 9:44:55 PM)
didnt starwood try this with the bora bora thing?

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:45:01 PM)
usatoday already is sympathetic

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:45:01 PM)
it is a business issue

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:45:05 PM)
not a FF issu

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:45:06 PM)
it has to show how it's impacting local business

Art234 (Jan 29, 2003 9:45:14 PM)
I like the Palmetto bug symbol like US has the cockroach

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:45:17 PM)
remember 97% of the people don't understand the issue...

vasantn (Jan 29, 2003 9:45:19 PM)
Let's be honest ... how compelling is it that a few thousand FFs have had their benefits reduced?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:45:19 PM)
their stupidity is costing them business and endangering the airline

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:45:25 PM)
we need to make the message CLEAR

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:45:41 PM)
very clear

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:45:42 PM)
the message is DL alienating it's best customers

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:45:45 PM)
that's news

747-400 (Jan 29, 2003 9:45:54 PM)
why would the press take FF's word for the imminent demise of the company over what analysts/the company says

elektrik (Jan 29, 2003 9:45:58 PM)
you need a billboard with one phrase, less than a dozen words, and a URL

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:46:01 PM)
and with a mobile BBS it will be big news in DL cities

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:46:03 PM)
Christopher at USAToday jumped on the story quick

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:46:03 PM)
no...dl is alienating its customers

Diver90 (Jan 29, 2003 9:46:05 PM)
Delta is finally playing the tune all of it most loyal customer have been dying to hear! (Hit the road Jack swells up). After 2o years of loyal service Delta airlines has to us to "HIT THE ROAD JACK" (shouted by 100l laptop carrying, PM badge wearing diehards standing in front of HQ or the Shareholders meeting)

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:46:14 PM)
elek absolutely

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:46:20 PM)
they are making bih deal out of elite

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:46:33 PM)
we keep them in business

vasantn (Jan 29, 2003 9:46:35 PM)
Even my family doesn't care, honestly. Why would the press or the public?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:46:49 PM)
we need to draw press attention to how we're all leaving

obscure2k (Jan 29, 2003 9:46:50 PM)
Delta, HOW COULD YOU, may make the media take notice. After all, someone has to ask what all of those bumper stickers in the airiport parking lots and all over CVG & Atl mean

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:47:06 PM)
Coming from NY, I can think of a slightly different slogan

747-400 (Jan 29, 2003 9:47:09 PM)
how many will that be? 100? 200?

InHoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:47:12 PM)
Investors will care if they think that mgmt. is alienating high rev. customers

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:47:14 PM)
I studied the cockroach story and history when I saw it...even though I don't fly USAir

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:47:17 PM)
but it wouldn't be usable on the family channel

fsu69 (Jan 29, 2003 9:47:25 PM)
Delta: HOW COULD You make us INVALUABLE to your Business

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:47:30 PM)
we can refine the message

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:47:37 PM)
but we need consensus on how to deliver it

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:47:43 PM)
Delta, HOW COULD YOU? WWW.Saveskymiles .com.....but make ssm very informational

Art234 (Jan 29, 2003 9:47:50 PM)
If those who said they're walking actually walk, DL will notice shortly....

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:47:53 PM)
anyone strongly object to the mobile BBS?

747-400 (Jan 29, 2003 9:47:59 PM)
i dont see a mobile billboard having much lasting power

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:48:07 PM)
we don't need lasting power

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:48:09 PM)
im in

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:48:11 PM)
just a few cities

bdschobel (Jan 29, 2003 9:48:15 PM)
It will work if the media notice.

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:48:17 PM)
randomly

obscure2k (Jan 29, 2003 9:48:24 PM)
bumper stickers may be a very cheap alternative. Anyone know what BS (short for bumper stickers) cost?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:48:24 PM)
Bruce I think the media will

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:48:29 PM)
we need a quick, surgically placed hit or two

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:48:38 PM)
we must get press kit..we need pr people

bdschobel (Jan 29, 2003 9:48:44 PM)
Me, too. But we have to make our story interesting.

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:48:45 PM)
ATL & NYC only needed ones to get point to investment public

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:48:47 PM)
obs the problem is bumper stickers won't do it for the press

fsu69 (Jan 29, 2003 9:48:54 PM)
to be honest I doubt it will work in ATL b/c Delta controls the main market share there.. and customers dont have many options

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:48:56 PM)
unless we crash our cars

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:49:05 PM)
"Delta: Not a good airline for frequent flyers!!!" Go to saveskymiles.com"

elektrik (Jan 29, 2003 9:49:05 PM)
who are you targeting with the mobile versions? people at the airport? folks around downtowns? why them?

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:49:14 PM)
ed in yesterdays usatoday article

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:49:15 PM)
just the press

Diver90 (Jan 29, 2003 9:49:16 PM)
Ok Marketing 101 - We need a Tag / a rallying cry ....what should it be?

elektrik (Jan 29, 2003 9:49:17 PM)
hit them as they hit the airport

obscure2k (Jan 29, 2003 9:49:20 PM)
press might notice if the BS is all over ATL

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:49:28 PM)
that's the idda

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:49:30 PM)
idea

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:49:36 PM)
only medallions care

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:49:36 PM)
who is a better "walking billboard" then all of us?? How many people would notice you in ATL Concourse A with a tshirt or something?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:49:51 PM)
how much would it cost to get us all to ATL?

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:50:00 PM)
we also need hand outs for flights and in airports

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:50:01 PM)
far more than the $2500 for the bbs

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:50:04 PM)
BBS needs to make it sound like it affects everybody - because it really does.

LexPassenger (Jan 29, 2003 9:50:04 PM)
40000 miles apiece

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:50:05 PM)
we can do that

andymo99 (Jan 29, 2003 9:50:07 PM)
25K miles RT on skysavers.

vasantn (Jan 29, 2003 9:50:08 PM)
Does anyone know a real, well-known columnist who could tell us honestly if this has a germ of a compelling column?

peteropny (Jan 29, 2003 9:50:08 PM)
even if you can't circle the airport with the mobile - you can certainly drive around the access roads

fsu69 (Jan 29, 2003 9:50:09 PM)
The Slogan should be FACT and not Opinion

bdschobel (Jan 29, 2003 9:50:16 PM)
Atlanta is really too big for us to blanket with bumper stickers. Even at 25 cents each, we would need $25,000 or so.

Diver90 (Jan 29, 2003 9:50:35 PM)
Yes I know a few Atlanta writers...

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:50:36 PM)
i'm friends with an AJC reporter - not famous, but i could ask him

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:50:43 PM)
we should make an appearance in ATL, even rent a CRC conference room to start in

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:50:51 PM)
verstantn..I have 2 that i can talk to

vasantn (Jan 29, 2003 9:51:05 PM)
Good. Let's get an opinion from someone in the industry.

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:51:07 PM)
what happened to the DC area reporter who was on the forum last week?

vasantn (Jan 29, 2003 9:51:11 PM)
The press, I mean.

obscure2k (Jan 29, 2003 9:51:15 PM)
anyone know politicians who fly DL and looking for votes

bdschobel (Jan 29, 2003 9:51:17 PM)
The question for reporter friends should be, "How do we make our story interesting enough to be picked up?"

Diver90 (Jan 29, 2003 9:51:19 PM)
I'll check with my sources

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:51:25 PM)
Exactly

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:51:27 PM)
bruce has it

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:51:33 PM)
we need this to be compelling

bdschobel (Jan 29, 2003 9:51:41 PM)
I see politicians every week on the Shuttle -- and elsehwre (through my work).

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:51:45 PM)
ok, i'll ask and report back tomorrow

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:51:49 PM)
I think mikey said it we need a press kit

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:51:58 PM)
I agree

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:52:06 PM)
we need to call the press when we do this

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:52:10 PM)
and let them know

vasantn (Jan 29, 2003 9:52:12 PM)
I used to know Sheryl McCarthy who used to be a columnist with New York Newsday (maybe still is). I'll see if I can track her down.

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:52:17 PM)
we need to also EACH send a letter to AJC & USA Today - every day!

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:52:18 PM)
that we're doing it and why

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:52:18 PM)
I think while we wait, we should send the checks to Bruce... so that we are ready to go when we decide

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:52:21 PM)
I do...

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:52:28 PM)
DL yes

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:52:29 PM)
i can get atlanta business chronicle support

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:52:33 PM)
definitely need a proper press release

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:52:35 PM)
we need to start collecting money

obscure2k (Jan 29, 2003 9:52:38 PM)
I can work on getting a press kit together. Friend is former Ed of major newspapers

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:52:44 PM)
does anyone want to be on the press committe

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:52:46 PM)
maybe CVG Enquirer

Diver90 (Jan 29, 2003 9:52:49 PM)
Need someone who does 150-200K a year all on Delta who will actually burn his tags in front of the delta counter and replace them with comped AA's and buy a ticket...

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:53:00 PM)
A bit dramatic

vasantn (Jan 29, 2003 9:53:06 PM)
And get arrested..

obscure2k (Jan 29, 2003 9:53:08 PM)
too dramatic

747-400 (Jan 29, 2003 9:53:11 PM)
also a sure way to get put in jai=l

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:53:11 PM)
and probly get him or her arrested

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:53:17 PM)
OK

747-400 (Jan 29, 2003 9:53:17 PM)
*jail

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:53:20 PM)
tsa would probably arrest the fool

peteropny (Jan 29, 2003 9:53:26 PM)
we'd come off as "nuts"

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:53:43 PM)
we will need a group who will be responsible for the message

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:53:51 PM)
press committee? I'll volunteer

stockmanjr (Jan 29, 2003 9:53:51 PM)
hey folks

Diver90 (Jan 29, 2003 9:53:52 PM)
OK Just remove them and replace them while the press snaps away...

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:53:56 PM)
how about a fedex of our PM cards cut in half sent to Leo?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:53:57 PM)
OK ATL

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:54:03 PM)
me too atl

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:54:05 PM)
"SkylessMiles Means Double Fares & Half Miles"

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:54:10 PM)
OK Mikey

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:54:16 PM)
one more?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:54:20 PM)
for press

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:54:35 PM)
is someone taking notes? Rssrsvp is going nuts because he is still locked out

vasantn (Jan 29, 2003 9:54:41 PM)
Gotta go, people. I honestly think we're ______ing in the wind but I'm in financially. Just let me know where to send the check. 'Night all!

Diver90 (Jan 29, 2003 9:54:42 PM)
I'll do press - The New Delta - Half the Fun for Twice the Price -

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:54:43 PM)
mikey and DL

bajamex (Jan 29, 2003 9:54:45 PM)
How about stickers on briefcases like the pilots

obscure2k (Jan 29, 2003 9:54:57 PM)
good idea

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:55:00 PM)
here is where we stand

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:55:07 PM)
the focus is mobile BBS

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:55:18 PM)
I'll get firm figures and post them by Tues

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:55:20 PM)
next

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:55:21 PM)
what doc?

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:55:28 PM)
mikey and ATL is what you meant

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:55:33 PM)
what what?

GG (Jan 29, 2003 9:55:35 PM)
FT has posted the last chat, and says they'll post this one

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:55:43 PM)
and some catchy icon we can all wear as we travel, ie cockroaches

GG (Jan 29, 2003 9:55:53 PM)
melting widget

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:55:54 PM)
the chat will be posted again

obscure2k (Jan 29, 2003 9:55:57 PM)
DELTA, HOW COULD YOU?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:56:05 PM)
and saveskymiles will serve as our webpresence

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:56:08 PM)
just a button, "Delta, How Could You?"

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:56:13 PM)
this has already been arranged

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:56:23 PM)
so the BBS will link to save skymiles

obscure2k (Jan 29, 2003 9:56:28 PM)
I like the button idea

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:56:34 PM)
all we need to do is gather the $$

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:56:39 PM)
i guess he means handle the press...i have only 2 contacts

elektrik (Jan 29, 2003 9:56:40 PM)
to which they can mint a less than witty reply "We had to." You need something more solid than that

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:56:47 PM)
instructions will appear on FT

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:56:52 PM)
exaclty

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:56:59 PM)
Want me to research the button cost?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:01 PM)
DL and mikey will be press liasons

andymo99 (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:06 PM)
"Delta, How Could You?" It makes it seem like DL, your best friend, just slept with your spouse.

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:10 PM)
that's a good idea RV

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:17 PM)
I agree

Diver90 (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:23 PM)
Seriouslly, who's in on content creation? (me)

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:23 PM)
I'm sorry I can't be a liaison...but i can help prepare

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:23 PM)
I like the slogan

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:26 PM)
i work for local media

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:29 PM)
Diver

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:34 PM)
you volunteering?

GG (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:34 PM)
we can do buttons

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:38 PM)
Mikey, doc... I have no contacts... I thought ATLpax volunteered to be the press contact

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:46 PM)
Sorry

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:51 PM)
i volunteered for a press committee

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:52 PM)
we need someone wo write up a press kit....info real facts etc...someone who knows what they are doing

Tolarian Wind (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:53 PM)
Fl-Delta, what part of FL are you in?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:57 PM)
DL and ATL - I get confused easily

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:57:58 PM)
;0(

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 9:58:03 PM)
OK, I will find out on the buttons and report back

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:58:05 PM)
FLL

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 9:58:11 PM)
but i can only help prepare - i can't be a media contact person

Tolarian Wind (Jan 29, 2003 9:58:12 PM)
likewise

obscure2k (Jan 29, 2003 9:58:15 PM)
good night, everyone. Family is starving in Los Angeles

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:58:21 PM)
can we get any support from randy

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:58:21 PM)
We can use locals for the calls

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:58:29 PM)
we will have plenty of advance notice

andymo99 (Jan 29, 2003 9:58:33 PM)
Let them starve, O2K!

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:58:37 PM)
so we can plan

GG (Jan 29, 2003 9:58:40 PM)
or eat cake

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 9:58:57 PM)
Is the plan to all be in ATL for launch?

Diver90 (Jan 29, 2003 9:58:57 PM)
I know someone who did a great job for the Northern Arc Task Force. I can see if she will help with distribution...

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:59:17 PM)
I can summarize

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:59:20 PM)
what we have so far

bdschobel (Jan 29, 2003 9:59:23 PM)
Or NYC for the shareholders' meeting?

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 9:59:31 PM)
again ---anyone take notes to post on FT

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:59:36 PM)
1 - We have a mobile BBS company who is willing to discount

dbk10 (Jan 29, 2003 9:59:45 PM)
bdschobel, is the shareholders meeting definitely in NYC?

bdschobel (Jan 29, 2003 9:59:53 PM)
Yes, Aoril 25.

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 9:59:56 PM)
2 - We will do it around the country at airports and the stockholders meeting

dbk10 (Jan 29, 2003 9:59:57 PM)
so I should buy 1 share of stock so that I can attend

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:00:12 PM)
3 - We have a web presence

bdschobel (Jan 29, 2003 10:00:21 PM)
Better hurry. Cutoff is in February, I believe.

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 10:00:22 PM)
use E-Trade and get double miles? :)

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:00:29 PM)
4 - Bruce will be collecting money

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 10:00:43 PM)
doc...web presence must be cleaned up...ssm needs work

bajamex (Jan 29, 2003 10:00:47 PM)
Press commitee needs to send info to wall street analysts

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:00:54 PM)
and to hit the press we will be contacing them prior to the running of the BBS

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:00:58 PM)
yes

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:01:10 PM)
on that note. We can also use a financial committee

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 10:01:13 PM)
need press kit to send

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:01:16 PM)
who will stir up the pot

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:01:33 PM)
on the financial boards

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:01:39 PM)
anyone volunteer

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:01:46 PM)
to post on Yahoo, etc?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:02:19 PM)
All you would need is a link to FT and a brief explantion of our angst

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:02:27 PM)
OK

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:02:36 PM)
guess I'll do that one myself

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 10:02:47 PM)
rssrsvp wants to know if we will meet again tomorrow night...he says he feels like a father in the waiting room

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:02:57 PM)
I'll be out of town

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:03:00 PM)
but not a bad idea

lofly (Jan 29, 2003 10:03:27 PM)
evening

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:03:28 PM)
mikey and ATL can you contact each other to figure out logistics?

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 10:03:39 PM)
yes

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:03:42 PM)
super

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:03:50 PM)
I'll get the financiaks

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 10:03:57 PM)
is bruce posting his address on the forum?

lofly (Jan 29, 2003 10:03:58 PM)
is the chat still"ON"??

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:04:05 PM)
does anyone feel strongly about the radio vs. BBS?

bdschobel (Jan 29, 2003 10:04:06 PM)
Yes, momentarily.

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:04:06 PM)
yes

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:04:21 PM)
lofly it's been sort of on and off

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 10:04:24 PM)
radio is expensive...

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:04:29 PM)
lots of us geting bounced out

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:04:37 PM)
I agree with the cost issue

bajamex (Jan 29, 2003 10:04:38 PM)
bbs wil get us on tv if we are lucky

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 10:04:40 PM)
maybe coordinated call in on open-line friday

DLrunner (Jan 29, 2003 10:04:49 PM)
ok all... signing off.... back whenever we decide on the next chat..

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:04:53 PM)
I like the idea of a mobile BBS circling airports

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:04:59 PM)
I can see it on the news

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:05:03 PM)
thanks DL

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:05:06 PM)
one importnat point

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:05:11 PM)
time is on our side

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:05:18 PM)
not only is the press important

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:05:24 PM)
but keeping this issue visible

dbk10 (Jan 29, 2003 10:05:27 PM)
What about advertising on top of taxis in NYC, anyone know what the costs are for something like that?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:05:27 PM)
for as long as it take

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:05:33 PM)
is perhaps even more so

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:05:39 PM)
huge

lofly (Jan 29, 2003 10:05:41 PM)
is a come back to the USA article being DONE?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:05:46 PM)
I checked

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:05:51 PM)
not sure

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:06:01 PM)
is anyone writing USA Today?

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 10:06:06 PM)
EVERY Day

bareflanks (Jan 29, 2003 10:06:17 PM)
I wrote to the reporter in L.A.

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 10:06:27 PM)
who...?? LA Times

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:06:34 PM)
I know that reporters are interested in the story

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 10:06:37 PM)
i think we should get our message together

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:06:41 PM)
I agree

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 10:06:47 PM)
and reply with that concept

bareflanks (Jan 29, 2003 10:06:48 PM)
Chris dont remember his last name. he was posted on ft

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:06:50 PM)
I think that a unifed voice will make a differene

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:06:58 PM)
as it did for US

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 10:07:01 PM)
someone start a thread to create a skeleton letter...??

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 10:07:04 PM)
and the same msg should go out to all the press

lofly (Jan 29, 2003 10:07:04 PM)
voice or message?

dbk10 (Jan 29, 2003 10:07:11 PM)
a unified voice will also "prove" that there is a group ready to take action

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:07:18 PM)
message - voice

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:07:19 PM)
same idea

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:07:25 PM)
yes

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 10:07:35 PM)
it would be helpful to have everyones ideas towards a general theme - can we start a thread?

lofly (Jan 29, 2003 10:07:39 PM)
big difference Doc

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:07:52 PM)
the fact that this is important enough for busy people to take time out is newsworthy

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 10:07:53 PM)
we also need to collect email addresses to all the papers

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:07:59 PM)
Yes

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:08:04 PM)
please do start a thread

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:08:07 PM)
there will be several

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:08:09 PM)
one for the money

andymo99 (Jan 29, 2003 10:08:16 PM)
Just CKDGM, or HRGM too?

bareflanks (Jan 29, 2003 10:08:20 PM)
FL there is a link on dl page for all newspapers nationwide

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:08:27 PM)
anyone so inclined please post that you are sending to Bruce

CKDGM (Jan 29, 2003 10:08:28 PM)
just me, HRGM has to be up early

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:08:31 PM)
his address will be posted

dbk10 (Jan 29, 2003 10:08:56 PM)
If you want to give me a "region", I will do a search for newspapers in that area and try to get letters to as many papers as possible. Why don't we do this, split the country into say 10-20 regions, and then just distribute the regions and whoever has that region is responsible for communicating with whomever they can in that area

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:08:59 PM)
The investor page on the DL site has a list of their board

lofly (Jan 29, 2003 10:08:59 PM)
I'll post another site for US nesspapers

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:09:16 PM)
dbk... great idea

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:09:35 PM)
would you like to join mikey and ATL on the press committee?

lofly (Jan 29, 2003 10:09:46 PM)
there are sites that have the whole country for newspapers

dbk10 (Jan 29, 2003 10:09:52 PM)
that's [email protected]

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:09:58 PM)
great

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:10:04 PM)
we can orgainize that part of this as well

bareflanks (Jan 29, 2003 10:10:05 PM)
lofty...yes

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:10:17 PM)
the idea is keeping up the pressure

lofly (Jan 29, 2003 10:10:21 PM)
I'll post it on FT

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:10:22 PM)
and we're starting to do that

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 10:10:24 PM)
thanks dbk

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:10:28 PM)
great

lofly (Jan 29, 2003 10:10:40 PM)

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:10:52 PM)

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:11:03 PM)
and do we want buttons?

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 10:11:06 PM)
last time we fired up SSM...randy gave me list of reporters

bareflanks (Jan 29, 2003 10:11:07 PM)

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 10:11:08 PM)
lofly start a new one just for newspaper

lofly (Jan 29, 2003 10:11:19 PM)
ok

paradocs (Jan 29, 2003 10:11:23 PM)
GG said she might do buttons. That is part of there business I think

dbk10 (Jan 29, 2003 10:11:27 PM)
Can't we get buttons through one of those companies that advertises in Sky magazine?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:11:31 PM)
Thanks para

andymo99 (Jan 29, 2003 10:11:33 PM)
paradocs is correct.

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 10:11:37 PM)
i kinda like buttons or something like the cockroaches

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:11:37 PM)
that's funny

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:11:42 PM)
I do too

lofly (Jan 29, 2003 10:11:53 PM)
cockroach was a GREAT idea

bareflanks (Jan 29, 2003 10:11:55 PM)
buttons are more noticeable

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 10:12:05 PM)
Dirty Rats instead of roaces

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:12:08 PM)
GG are you able to check on buttons?

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 10:12:09 PM)
good night everyone, I will check on the buttons

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 10:12:12 PM)
mushrooms because we are shit upon

dbk10 (Jan 29, 2003 10:12:14 PM)

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:12:17 PM)

dbk10 (Jan 29, 2003 10:12:18 PM)
j/k

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:12:20 PM)
thanks RVB

lofly (Jan 29, 2003 10:12:32 PM)
not as good as cockroach

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:12:33 PM)
with a cross out

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 10:12:54 PM)
Just Leo with a red circle through it?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:12:58 PM)
that would work

bdschobel (Jan 29, 2003 10:13:03 PM)
Gotta go. Son needs computer!

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:13:04 PM)
for me anyway

lofly (Jan 29, 2003 10:13:04 PM)
how about a turd

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:13:05 PM)
OK

ATLpax (Jan 29, 2003 10:13:06 PM)
let's not do anything we can get sued over

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:13:10 PM)
true

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 10:13:13 PM)
no leo is too personal...dl emblamb

paradocs (Jan 29, 2003 10:13:14 PM)
who would know its Leo besides us?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:13:16 PM)
I think we have our direction

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 10:13:17 PM)
leo not catchy enough for people that don't know the CEO

RVBOOS (Jan 29, 2003 10:13:32 PM)
ok, i'm on it like a cheap suit

mikey1003 (Jan 29, 2003 10:13:33 PM)

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:13:40 PM)

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:13:43 PM)
OK

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:13:50 PM)
anything we are missing?

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:14:02 PM)
I guess not

FL-Delta-Platinum (Jan 29, 2003 10:14:09 PM)
Anyone on inside to get pilots FA's on board?

paradocs (Jan 29, 2003 10:14:12 PM)
thanks all

bareflanks (Jan 29, 2003 10:14:13 PM)
remember that DL lurkers are reading this also

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:14:18 PM)

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:15:10 PM)
that's OK

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:15:23 PM)
if for some reason this doesn't happen

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:15:30 PM)
and the money isn't spent

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:15:36 PM)
it will be refunded

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:15:47 PM)
but I don't see that as an issue

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:15:55 PM)
my guess is that this will work

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:16:22 PM)
OK

EyeFlyDoc (Jan 29, 2003 10:16:32 PM)
For those of you who just arrived
