Delta Air Lines is one of the founding members of Skyteam. Surviving bankruptcy in 2005 due to rising fuel prices and bloated costs Delta merged with Norwest Airlines, making it the largest airline in the world.
Delta Airlines was established in 1928 by the name of Delta Air Service as an offshoot of an agricultural airline by the name of "Huff Daland Dusters" . In 1945, the airline was given its current name. In the course of the years, several airlines were taken over so that Delta airlines became the largest airline in the world when it took over Northwest Airlines.
Following the terrorist attacks on the September 11th 2001, Delta and American Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways, Continental Airways and Boeing took the FBI and CIA to court. The case seeks to clear up the question of whether the airlines also carry the responsibility for the attacks.
Delta Airlines serves 321 destinations in 64 countries. Most destinations are in North America. Destinations in Europe are London, Paris and Rome and a few airports in Turkey and Germany for example Frankfurt, Munich and Berlin.
