Can Delta Survive as an Independent Carrier? Asks Strategist and Author Harry Nolan
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 8, 2006
Can bankrupt Delta Air Lines, Inc. (Pink Sheets: DALRQ) survive as an independent carrier? Harry L. Nolan, Jr., noted business strategist and author of Airline Without A Pilot - Lessons In Leadership, addressed this question recently before Turnaround Management Association meetings in both Chicago and Atlanta. A summary of his remarks follows:
To Nolan, the irony of Delta's relatively poor on-time performance is underscored by the fact the COO Whitehurst was in charge of Delta's "Transformation Plan" beginning in January 1, 2004 when he started the job.
This extreme focus on superficial aspects of running the airline, while failing to make the grade on the essentials - on-time performance, delivered baggage, flights running as scheduled, seats sold being provided - leads Nolan to suggest those at Delta making decisions now are "Don Quixotes of the inconsequential."
Delta spent an estimated $ 8 million out of pocket (not including salary costs and any customer revenue lost by flying those from other cities to Atlanta with a reserved seat) to bring in 12,000 front line employees to Atlanta, in small groups over a six months period, for 1 ½ days of introduction to the "New Delta. In addition to hearing standup presentations by senior executives, intended to create confidence in the management team, attendees were housed in expensive hotels and served meals and libation from an expensive catering company. When a flight attendant, several months after attending, was asked by Nolan what she gained from the experience, the answer was to learn about the "New Delta. She was told the "New Delta" would fly on time, have clean airplanes and provide the tools she needed to do her job. However, she went on to say that she had not seen that happen yet.
Without taking a position on the U.S. Airways offer, Nolan believes that the track record documented above makes it highly unlikely Delta can survive as an independent carrier under its existing leadership. This is particularly true once Jerry Grinstein, who has credibility in the industry, Washington and elsewhere, retires as he had said he will do upon bankruptcy exit.
Harris has the respect of and contacts with many key aviation industry executives and Delta retirees (some of whom have told Nolan they would come back and work for free if Harris returned).
There are self-appointed industry experts who take a different view from Nolan's.
Nolan is the founder and President of Management Advisory Services, Inc., a 25-year old Atlanta-based firm specializing in business strategy and leadership.
