Delta Takes On Southwest

In an interview in Business Travel News, Richard Anderson, Delta CEO, had this to say about Southwest’s buyout of AirTran, “AirTran had first class, they had assigned seats, and Southwest has no first class, no assigned seats, doesn’t sell through global distribution systems–a very different product than what AirTran offered in the market. It’s very distinguishable. If you want international service, if you want high frequency all around the world, a club, business class, first class, don’t have to stand in a line to get on airplanes when you’re a business traveler–that’s the product Delta offers.”
