Delta Air Lines made a vow on Valentine's Day: it plans to become the world's first carbon-neutral airline. To that end, the carrier said Friday it'll invest $1 billion over the next decade to curb the impact of global air travel on the environment. That makes it the first airline to make a big monetary commitment. Delta plans to help fund research and projects that involve clean air technologies and the reduction of carbon emissions and waste. But it didn't give details on just how it'll invest that money. Air carriers like Delta have a big impact on the environment. The aviation industry accounts for roughly 2% of global carbon dioxide emissions, and that comes amid the big increase in air travel. The industry plans to achieve carbon neutral growth from 2020. But with few options available to cut emissions, carriers are investing in environmental projects to offset that.
Last week's big deal between the two West Coast airlines triggered renewed speculation that it might lead to American acquiring Alaska. American Airlines' President Robert Isom shared his view on that.

Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian said airline passengers who want to recline their seats should ask the person behind them if it's okay. He said personally he does not recline his seat. Bastian's comments come as the lightning rod debate pitting recliners versus non-recliners on airplanes hit a new fevered pitch this past week […]
While the moderate 2020 Democrats finished behind Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire, presidential hopefuls Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg and Joe Biden are winning over S&P 500 CEOs, as the execs vote for them with their wallets.
Delta vows to go carbon neutral. What does that mean and how does a company that burns fuel to operate become carbon neutral?
An Atlanta-based aviation services company will lay off 64 workers by Feb. 29 at Orlando International Airport. DAL Global Services LLC, also known as Delta Global Services, is cutting the jobs after losing a contract with an unnamed third party at the airport, according to a Feb. 7 letter to the state. Executives at Delta Global Services — a former subsidiary of Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) — couldn't be reached for comment.
Delta's Chicago employees are getting a significant financial boost from the carrier's record profit-sharing payout.
In a wide-ranging interview on CNBC, Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian laid out air travel etiquette for when it is appropriate to recline your seat after a viral video showed a male passenger punching the back of the chair of a woman who reclined into his space. "The proper thing to do is, if you're going to recline into somebody, you ask if it's OK first," Bastian told the CNBC anchors. The discussion was prompted by a video posted to Twitter by Wendi Williams, a passenger on an American Airlines plane who had a run-in with a fellow passenger that resulted in a confrontation.
Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") has completed a periodic review of the ratings of Delta Air Lines, Inc.'s ("Delta") Enhanced Equipment Trust Certificates ("EETCs") and other ratings that are associated with the same analytical unit. The review was conducted through a portfolio review in which Moody's reassessed the appropriateness of the ratings in the context of the relevant principal methodology(ies), recent developments, and a comparison of the financial and operating profile to similarly rated peers.
Delta Air Lines Inc said on Friday it will invest $1 billion over the next decade in initiatives that would limit the impact of global air travel on the environment, the first airline to make a commitment of that scale. The aviation industry accounts for roughly 2% of global carbon dioxide emissions and has set out a plan to achieve carbon-neutral growth from 2020, even as air travel is forecast to accelerate. Facing increasing demands from customers, individual airlines like Delta have taken additional steps to mitigate their carbon impact with measures ranging from eliminating single-use plastics to investing in biofuels and purchasing more fuel-efficient aircraft.
Delta understands its business needs to do more than just take care of its customers, workers and shareholders. As of next month, Delta will become the first airliner to achieve a carbon-neutral status and will do so through investing in not only carbon reduction methods but carbon removal technologies. Airliners can't operate without fossil fuels and Bastian acknowledged Delta needs to use jet fuel for "as far as the eye can see." A future without the use of jet fuels is not realistic but that doesn't mean nothing can be done to become more environmentally friendly.
With recent studies articulating the averse environmental impact caused by air travel, Delta is going greener. Delta Air Lines Inc. announced Friday it will commit $1 billion over the next decade toward becoming the first completely carbon-neutral airline. The effort will focus on three pillars: carbon reduction, carbon removal and stakeholder engagement.
Delta Air Lines will invest $1 billion over 10 years in initiatives designed to help curb the impact of global air travel on the climate.
Few would likely cite the industrial sector as a standout through 2019. Given the ongoing 737 Max trouble faced by Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA), the multi-year lows experienced by General Electric Company (NYSE: GE) and 3M (NYSE: MMM) and a slew of negative revisions from freight and logistics companies like Wabtec Corporation (NYSE: WAB), Landstar System, Inc. (NASDAQ: LSTR) and C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHRW), you wouldn’t be faulted for believing the sector was one of the market’s chief laggards in 2019 alongside energy or materials.
Members of a federal oversight board last month visited the Atlanta airport to weigh the balance of aviation security versus individual privacy. The bipartisan Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board made an observational visit to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport as part of a roughly year-long review of Customs and Border Protection’s use of facial-recognition technology at airports. During their visit to Hartsfield-Jackson, Board members observed the use of facial recognition technology by Delta Air Lines Inc. at check-in kiosks, baggage check and the departure gate; by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) at the security check point; and by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) upon passengers' entry into the United States.
