FAA Accepts Single Operating Certificate for Proposed Delta, Northwest Merger

Delta Air Lines and Northwest Airlines are one step closer to the proposed merger of the two companies.

The next step in the process takes place tomorrow as shareholders of both companies will vote on the merger.

Delta and Northwest pilots have already approved the joint collective bargaining agreement between the airlines.
