Citizens, leaders protest proposed Delta takeover

December 19, 2006

AUGUSTA, Ga.---Delta Airlines is trying to fight a takeover bid by US Airways, and they're bringing that fight right here to Augusta.

More than 100 people gathered with city and state leaders at the Delta Reservation Center along River Watch Parkway this morning, talking up the benefits of the airline in the state and in Augusta.

They say if US Airways does get control of Delta, it will mean job losses, higher prices to fly, and fewer choices.

Nine events like this one were held around the country today. They call the campaign Keep Delta My Delta.
