“This is a proud day for the thousands of Delta people, customers, communities, civic leaders and others who stood up for our standalone plan and said, emphatically, ‘Keep Delta My Delta.’ We appreciate the Unsecured Creditors' Committee’s endorsement of our plan of reorganization and the diligent work of the Committee and its advisers in evaluating that plan. We also want to acknowledge the tireless work of all Delta people whose contributions are allowing us to continue the tremendous progress we have made with our restructuring plan.
