Delta Air Lines released the other day 15 minute long “documentary” about the gulf carriers trying to inform its employees what is at stake.

Guest Rant: Is Delta the Pepsi of Airlines?


While the internet was abuzz about Pepsi’s failed Kendall Jenner ad (read more here) and other travel blogs were covering the details of Delta’s latest unannounced devaluation of their SkyMiles program, a bigger story was developing: Delta solidifying itself as the (tone-deaf) Pepsi of airlines. (Ironic since Coke and Delta are partners and both based in Atlanta.) John also reported on the devaluation here.

Delta Air Lines

Backing up a bit: earlier this week a series of storms in Atlanta as well as bad weather in the Northeast US grounded Delta’s hub, disrupting their operation and creating a domino effect. However, 3 days later Delta was still having problems recovering. Delta even went so far as asking crews to sleep on planes due to lack of hotels, asking staff to volunteer to work without pay and taking the unusual step of accepting help from loyal Diamond Medallion customers going to the Atlanta airport to assist stranded passengers.
