Delta Memorial Day weekend operation delivered reliably for customers, matched 2019 volume


Delta people set a high bar for summer reliability over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, serving more than 2.7 million customers on 22,000 flights from May 25-29.

That marked a 17% increase over 2022 and was on par with the pre-pandemic holiday travel volume logged in 2019. No flights were canceled on Friday, May 26, and only 17 cancellations were recorded during the five-day holiday period. Most were due to weather conditions outside the airline’s control.

"This weekend, millions of customers saw what we're made of,” John Laughter, E.V.P. and Chief of Operations. “These exceptional results reflect the hard work and preparation by the Delta people.”

Friday and Monday of the holiday weekend recorded the most departures since peak spring break operations in early April. Summer demand remains robust: Delta will fly the busiest trans-Atlantic schedule in the airline’s history, with 75% of tickets already sold.

More than 1,750 flights per week to 80 international destinations are being offered this summer, delivering a best-in-class experience while connecting you to virtually any destination in conjunction with our global partners.
