Cheap Delta Flights
Delta Air Lines might be the third-largest airline in the United States, but it’s got the largest route network of any airline worldwide. Delta serves North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and the Caribbean, with over 1600 flights per day to more than 300 destinations in 52 countries. It’s the only airline to fly to all 50 US states, as well as Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
Delta has its headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, and has the largest and busiest hub in the world at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the busiest airport in the world. In addition to the Atlanta hub, Delta also has hubs in Cincinnati, New York (JFK) and Salt Lake City and has large operations (though not quite hubs) in many other cities in the United States, including Boston, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Orlando and Washington D.C. (Reagan).
Delta is part of the SkyTeam airline alliance. It’s the busiest carrier in Florida, as well as the airline carrying more passengers across the Atlantic than any other airline in the world. Atlanta, Cincinnati and New York (JFK) are Delta’s biggest transatlantic gateways, and Atlanta and Los Angeles are its biggest Latin American gateways. Delta is also the only major US airline that flies to Africa.
Despite the airline’s far reach, Delta hasn’t been immune to the financial woes that have recently befallen most major airlines. Delta survived a takeover attempt by US Airways, and has announced it plans to be out of bankruptcy by the Spring of 2007. In early 2007, news came out that Northwest and Delta were in negotiations about a possible merger after each emerges from bankruptcy.
