Last Thursday, American’s Chief Operating Officer provided a few interesting Delta quotes during a Credit Suisse investor presentation:
“Delta’s done a great job: hats off to them, Delta is operating at a level that’s never been seen before, especially for an airline that large. Right now, we’re not too far from Delta in terms of departing aircraft on time. Where Delta is distinguishing themselves right now, I think, is with their completion factor.”
As was previously reported here, during 3Q15 Delta completed 99.99% of its flights and went 40 days with no cancellations. American in that same quarter completed 99.3% flights. Back in October, Delta had their 100th day in 2015 with no canceled flights.
