St. Paul, Minn. — Gov. Tim Pawlenty met with the chief executives of Northwest Airlines and Delta Air Lines to talk about how their combination will affect Minnesota.
Pawlenty spokesman Brian McClung said the governor told Northwest's Doug Steenland and Delta's Richard Anderson on Thursday that he expects them to honor the commitments Northwest made to Minnesota.
Those commitments secured the airline $545 million worth of loans and lease breaks.
