American COO – “Delta’s Done a Great Job, Operating at Level Never Before Seen”

by Adam

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.

Meanwhile AA canceled my parents flight from ATL to MIA due to crew availability. It seems in 7 hours they can’t get a replacement crew from CLT or MIA to ATL. Now I understan why Delta terminated the interline agreement with AA.
