Congratulations to all DL employee....You work hard and stay at the job.

Let keep it up the good work. I am so proud of you guys.

How about order more new aircraft anytime soon? Will DL order new 779X?

13.3% margin- Time for a windfall profits tax! If oil companies were making this margin there would be a crazy media firestorm. Maybe the government should stimulate some competition in the market. If the AA/US merger fails in the courts, there will be calls to break up DL and UA.

Good for DL, but more ammo about the industry for the DoJ to block any additional mergers.

As a Delta employee, I would like to thank everyone for your business & loyalty. Delta wouldn't be successful, without loyal customers. Thank you again!

How much of the increase in revenue came from increased fees?

Did someone at delta put some bad mayo on your bologna or something? I see no other reason for your continued obsession with lunch meats. Unless you get paid for every post in which you mention "Ham Sandwich" (you must be quite wealthy by now)....
