The fate of 1,000 jobs at Northwest Airline’s headquarters in Eagan is up in the air following the carrier’s merger with Delta Airlines. Delta has insisted throughout negotiations that the combined airline will keep the Delta name and its Atlanta headquarters.

Minnesota House Republicans responded by proposing a package of tax breaks to persuade Delta to consider moving to Minnesota. Rep. Tom Emmer urged passage of the incentive package, saying, “The deal is not closed.”

But according to Northwest CEO Doug Steenland, it was closed: The headquarters of the combined company will be in Atlanta, he said.
