Delta Air Lines is a commercial airline based in Atlanta, Georgia. It is one of the major airlines of the United States with presence at several major airports and a fleet of over 700 aircraft.

This airline is a founding member, along with Aeromexico, Air France and Korean Air, of SkyTeam, a global airline alliance that provides customers with a large number of destinations around the world, flights and other services. Including its SkyTeam partners.

On October 30, 2008, Northwest Airlines became a part of this airline, thus creating the largest airline in the world, displacing American Airlines, and now flying to 375 destinations in 66 countries, carrying some 170 million passengers a year, with nearly 75,000 employees. This is the largest American airline providing transatlantic flights, and arriving at more destinations in Europe and Asia than any other airline, and it is the second largest U.S. operator in Latin America, after American Airlines.

Its main hub is the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, in Atlanta, which in 2004 transported more than 50 million passengers, making it the largest airport of international traffic in the world followed by Chicago O’hare, the main hub for United Airlines and one of the major hubs in American.

In addition to Atlanta, this airline has established 3 secondary hubs in Salt Lake City, Cincinnati and New York-JFK. Following the merger with Northwest it extended that number to 8, now including the airports of Detroit, Memphis, Minneapolis-St. Paul and Tokyo-Narita

Inflight entertainment is one of the main strategies of this airline marketing team, which is already implementing the services that the Song Airlines aircraft had implemented, such as individual screens with various multimedia services. To determine the service of meals and drinks that passengers on board will receive, various criteria are used, including the hours of flight, the distance traveled and the service class of the ticket purchased.

Now this airline Airlines offers worldwide travel to more destinations, with flights to more than 300 locations on the entire planet.

The airline was founded in the USA in the decade of the 1920’s and has achieved exponential growth. Today it is one of the most important airlines around the world. This airline transports more than 160 million passengers all over the globe year after year.

    I must say that while the whole world likes moaning about airlines my recent flight with Delta was great. Their services to and from Charles De Gaulle-SLC Airport were outstanding. The food was also excellent in the flight. As a vegetarian I requested a special meal and was served minted chickpeas with wild rice and tofu marinade along with a roll of bread, cheese, biscuits, and dessert. Then, just before landing they served a Calzone. Breakfast typically consists of a cereal bar and a banana. With regard to on board entertainment while they have an excellent selection of content, it was a little slow. Luggage arrived on time and check-in was also effective at both airports with friendly and professional staff. Both flights took off right on time and arrived long before their anticipated time of arrival, although on the outbound flight there was a delay in the boarding of the passengers. For the price that I paid I think it was a really excellent flight. Delta is a pretty safe bet when you’re flying the friendly skies!
