Northwest to Become the Official Airline of the GOP … This is Some Sort of Joke, Right?

By Robert Mark on January 4th, 2008

You have to love the fact that the GOP supports business, even if it is mostly the Fortune 100s.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune today reported that the Grand Old Party announced Northwest Airlines as their choice to be the official airline for this summer’s GOP convention in the Twin Cities.

There was a fact the Star Tribune missed though.nwaplane3

There is NO other airline with enough service in and out of the Twin Cities to act as the official airline this summer except Northwest. At last count, Northwest controls about 80 percent percent of the traffic at MSP.

Of course, maybe United might try out to become a sort of GOP runner-up airline … if they can find enough crews to staff their airplanes that is.
