Because before there's a banner, band or float, being proud of who you are and who you love is something to celebrate. “It's Pride Month. And while it's nice to see rainbows everywhere, this year it just means so much more. A reminder of why this month is imperative. I haven't always been proud of who I am. Haven't always accepted myself. It took a looooong time. That's why visibility and acceptance are so important. True acceptance. As human beings. Not just as a consumer group. And I'm proud of who I am, how far I've come, and where I am today. Working for a company that values and champions all people and is making huge strides to make sure at every level there's equal opportunity and diversity. I'm so happy with my life, my beautifully supportive family, and the chosen family I get to surround myself with every day. The best is yet to come. That's why I'm celebrating.” - JC T., Flight Attendant

Every year around Valentine's Day, we celebrate the spirit behind Delta - our employees. It’s no secret 2020 was filled with turbulence, and our people have been the constant carrying Delta through. Almost 40 years ago, during another trying time, Delta’s first Boeing 767 became a flying symbol of Delta’s pride and culture – named The Spirit of Delta. Last week, we celebrated our people with a new Spirit to guide us into 2021 and beyond. Ship 3502, an Airbus A350, is being dedicated to all Delta employees worldwide for their continued resilience and indomitable spirit during the coronavirus pandemic. To the world’s best employees – thank you. You are the ones that helped us Keep Climbing, together, during this historic time. The Delta Spirit is ready to welcome new travelers aboard and connect the world once again.

“Giving back to the communities where we live, work and serve is a part of our DNA at Delta, and it has never been more important. Even in a pandemic, our people want to roll up their sleeves and help. Whether through giving blood, providing food and supplies to those in need or bringing smiles to children’s faces during the holidays with bikes built by TechOps employees - Delta people care, and it shows.” -Tad H., Managing Director of Community Engagement Read more about how Delta people served our communities in 2020 below.
We were one of the first airlines to require that customers and employees wear a face covering across our touchpoints at airports and on airplanes. Now, a technical bulletin by faculty at Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health confirms that masks are an essential part of a layered strategy to keep travelers safe throughout their journey.
"It's hard to believe that it's been 23 and a half years since I started my journey with Delta. I've had a great career filled with opportunities to grow and change jobs, volunteer and travel. Out of all the memories and experiences, my favorite was when I was nominated by my colleagues to become a member of ResLINC. As a member, I had the honor to serve as a liaison between Reservations specialists and leadership. In my 4 years on that team, I traveled to so many different Delta offices across the country, attended conferences and met many amazing people. Those experiences opened an entire side of the company that I didn'y know existed. To all of the wonderful friends I have made and people I have met along the way, I will be FOREVER grateful and will miss you all." - Pamela L., Customer Solution Supervisor Enjoy your retirement, Pamela! We are forever grateful for you, too. #KeepClimbingAlways
