Delta Air Lines is one of the world’s largest and most successful carriers, with a fleet of over 900 aircraft and destinations around the world. It is also an airline that is the result of many mergers and acquisitions in its almost hundred-year history. This book charts the history of Delta from its founding as Huff Daland Dusters in 1925, through to the present-day carrier with its modern fleet of latest generation airliners. It also looks at some of the airlines that have become part of Delta, such as Northeast Airlines, Chicago & Southern, Western Airlines, and Northwest Airlines. As well as looking at the mainline carrier of today and its history, it also explores the histories of these constituent airlines, as well as the Delta Connection feeder airline and its past. With over 140 images, this book presents Delta Air Lines, from its very start to its current position in the aviation world.
