Over the past two years, Delta has focused on enhancing the customer experience at Delta Sky Clubs across its network. Delta announced new Delta Sky Clubs coming to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in 2019; debuted renovated Delta Sky Clubs at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and Minneapolis –St. Paul International Airport; expanded the Delta Sky Club at Raleigh-Durham International Airport; and opened new flagship Delta Sky Clubs at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Sea-Tac.

Delta is Seattle's largest global airline with 158 peak-day departures to 49 destinations in September. The airline continues to grow its presence in the market and this summer offered 10 percent more peak-day seats, driven by the addition of three new domestic destinations – Indianapolis, Kansas City and Washington-Dulles – as well as more flights and larger aircraft operating between existing routes.
