Fly Delta Jets

Dear Travel Diary,

Labor Day weekend presented us with the opportunity to meet Nick in Atlanta.

He was on 'short call reserve,' but thankfully for us, wasn't called. We were able to explore quite a bit of Delta's campus and the surrounding area.


We were unable to get into the Delta Flight Museum because a wedding was being held there. However, we got to see the plane Nick flies up close.


The airline with its subsidiaries and regional affiliates operate over 5,400 flights a day that include 319 destinations in 54 countries on 6 continents. Delta is the oldest operating airline in the United States, the 6th-oldest airline according to its foundation date and is considered one of the 5 remaining "legacy carriers."

The company's history can be traced back to Huff Daland Dusters, founded in 1924 in Macon, Georgia as a crop-dusting operation. The company moved to Monroe, Louisiana and was renamed Delta Air Services in reference to the nearby Mississippi Delta region, and commenced passenger services in June of 1929.

In 2013, Delta was the world's largest airline in terms of scheduled passengers carried and the second-largest in terms of both revenue passenger kilometers flown and capacity.


From our perspective however, it provides us with a lifestyle we once could only dream about.





How cool is that car?!
