Delta Air Lines' operating expense 2008-2018 Delta Air Lines reported an operating expense of about 39.17 billion U.S. dollars in 2018. The company's operating expenses are at a decade high and include costs such as equipment, marketing, payroll, and insurance.

Delta’s financial standing

Delta Air Lines achieved a positive yearly operating income since 2009, reaching 5.26 billion U.S. dollars in 2018. The three largest full-service network carriers, which include Delta Air Lines, American Airlines and Southwest Airlines, all recorded comparable operating revenue streams of between 40 and 45 billion U.S. dollars in that year. Delta is ranked as one of the top airlines within the United States in terms of a brand index in 2019. The airline giant was ranked the most valuable airline worldwide as of July 2019, and its operating profit per available seat mile is the largest, matching Allegiant's, as of 2018.

The global airline industry

Commercial airlines worldwide are experiencing a decline in operating profits, facing a combination of challenges to profitability, including rising fuel costs and strict competition from budget airlines. An additional substantial challenge is a growing shortage of airline pilots. By 2028, a predicted 150,000 pilots will join the airline industry; however, future demand for pilots is considerably larger.
