Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Delta is one of the largest airlines in the world, operating a fleet of over 900 aircraft that serves more than 325 destinations across six continents. Delta has a long history in the airline industry. It is known for its exceptional customer service, operational reliability and industry-leading innovation.

Delta's net income for the same period was $2.7 billion, up from $1.2 billion in 2021.

Delta's strong financial performance comes from several factors, including its strategic focus on customer service, operational efficiency and technological innovation. The company has invested heavily in its fleet and infrastructure and is committed to delivering passengers a safe and comfortable travel experience. Delta has also made significant investments in technology, such as its Fly Delta app and biometric boarding, which have helped to streamline the travel experience and improve customer satisfaction.

Delta also faces significant challenges in the airline industry, including intense competition from other major airlines and the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic severely impacted the airline industry, with reduced demand for air travel and significant disruptions to operations. Delta responded to these challenges by implementing cost-cutting measures, such as reducing its workforce, retiring older aircraft and focusing on its core customer service and operational efficiency strengths.

Airline stocks have historically been viewed as a bad investment, and it was the rare stock advisor who would suggest investing in the airline industry, but a growing number of passengers combined with more streamlined strategies have created more potential for the airline industry. Airline stocks may not be the biggest stock gainers, best growth stocks, or most active stocks, on Wall Street but they may still have a place in your portfolio. Though the last ten years may have made airline stocks look like a good investment, it’s also important to keep in mind that airline stocks may not perform as well during recessions, which have historically been difficult for airlines. For the time being, airline stocks have the potential to be a good investment as part of a diversified portfolio.
