Delta Air Lines CEO: SkyTeam alliance has not brought a 'lot of great value' to pax or airlines

20 September, 2019

Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian stated the SkyTeam alliance has not brought a "a lot of great value" to passengers or member airlines, adding alliances have "not been successful in the airline world" (View From The Wing, 19-Sep-2019). However, he noted Delta's investment in other carriers could become "meaningful enough" to create an "international network of carriers that will be uniquely tied where you have Delta as the centrepiece", adding: "That's our goal".
