Business travelers name Delta tops for 5th consecutive year

Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) has been called the leading airline for the fifth consecutive year, rated No. 1 in the Business Travel News (BTN) Annual Airline Survey.

This is the first time BTN voters, who manage tens of billions of dollars in annual travel spend, have selected the same airline for five years in a row.

Delta swept all 10 survey categories for a second consecutive year, and recorded the largest average scoring margin between the airline and its competitors. BTN voters select the top US carrier in the Business Travel News survey based on their perceptions of airline performance in negotiating and maintaining preferred programs, delivering service and providing value.

Delta Air Lines serves more than 170 million customers each year. Headquartered in Atlanta, Delta employs nearly 80,000 employees worldwide and operates a mainline fleet of more than 800 aircraft.
