I have noticed how old Delta's planes are, the whole fleet is mostly old. Delta has a few new aircraft which are really nice. As a frequent flier, I am hoping they will take those profits and buy new planes with seat screens and better seats.

Delta made so much money because they pay kickbacks to travel companies to use their airline. When Utah State government should be using Southwest to send their employees on work related airline travel they are sent instead via Delta airlines at twice the cost.

@Uncle Rico

Not much chance of Delta buying new planes unless they are compelled to do so. They just learned they can make record profits with old planes. If it isn't broke they won't fix it. From their perspective it isn't broke because it is make plane loads of cash.

They don't care if we are packed like sardines in old planes.

The other comical part of the article is where it referred to getting "nickel and dimed". Who knew that $50 to transport a bag that used to be free is "nickel and dime". $50 is a rip off and that is why airlines a flowing with money and profits.

News Flash. Southwest Airlines is not the bargain it used to be. Delta is often the same or close to the same price.

They are all in on the extortionist fare pricing now.
