Delta Helps Virgin Atlantic Almost Double Profit in 2015, Best Profit Ever by 2018?

Earlier this week, Virgin Atlantic announced that 2015 earnings were almost double those of 2014, thanks in part to their partner Delta, who holds a 49% stake in the company. Lower operating costs and fuel helped spur the increases, though the biggest driver was the Delta partnership – up +55% year-over-year. Under the partnership, Virgin has added additional US flights to JFK, Miami, San Francisco and Detroit. The CEO even noted that if things continue, the airline could see its largest profit ever by 2018.
