I don't think Delta will quit (among the reasons, Delta has contracts to sell tickets to the military at bulk fares) but they will cut back to the minimum service that supports international and military travel. The Memphis hub may not survive the Delta-Northwest merger once the labor issues are settled, but that decision would affect all Memphis service, not just PFN. Delta (and particularly "Delta Connection") have justly earned a bad reputation here, so 2 or 3 years in the wilderness is in order. When the market becomes rational again we'll see how they compete. Southwest has a subsidized laboratory to test the extent of the "Southwest Effect".
