Delta Air Lines: net income 2008-2019

In the fiscal year of 2019, Delta Air Lines reported a net income of over 4.7 billion U.S. dollars.

Delta Air Lines – exiting bankruptcy

After Delta’s bankruptcy protection and restructuring in 2007, the company started to revitalize its entire business plan. From 2007 to 2019, Delta Air Lines’ total assets grew somewhat continuously reaching 64.5 billion U.S. dollars by the end of that period. While Delta’s net loss amounted to 8.92 billion U.S. dollars in 2008, its bankruptcy protection helped the company to generate net income starting from 2010. Besides, since 2012 the company could recover its declining number of full-time equivalent employees and number of active pilots, reaching 88,680 full-time employees and 15,179 pilots by 2018.

Delta Air Lines - today

Compared to the prior years, Delta Air Lines improved its efficiency measures progressively, such as passenger load factor, number of passengers boarded and revenue passenger miles from 2008 to 2019. In 2018, Delta was the second leading airline group worldwide based on revenue.
