Maybe exercise the company expense card and start having dinners / drinks with these folks. They might be less assholish if you wine and dine them a little. Normally, I would say fire them but from the sounds of it you are too far gone. Drinks, breaking bread, and having a few laughs might smooth things over. At the very lease you can eat out at some fancy places and tell the folks at work you are smoothing things over. This could be tough if you hate them though.

Sounds like a good idea

Another one is, depending on how their team is behaving w.r.t. your team, start pushing some responsibility back

Were they delayed when they shouldn't have been? Is it something on their side that's causing issues?

This needs to be done with some care, but it works. Though your suggestion sounds good and could be used in combination.

Best suggestion of the thread.
