Delta to take 20% stake in Latam Airlines

Delta announced that it is spending $1.9 billion to acquire a 20% stake in Latam, South America's largest airline. American airlines had previously been pursuing a joint venture with Latam, but the move was blocked by Chile's supreme court. Delta CEO Ed Bastian said the move will "largely complete the map" for Delta.
