Dear Delta Air Lines,

We were all excited to receive a letter from Ed Bastian on September 27th, 2017, which announced that, to align our compensation with our values, Delta Air Lines would reinstate the old profit sharing formula which offered significantly higher profit sharing payouts than the newer formula. This way, we would again be in line with our other Delta employees: the pilots, starting on October 1st, 2017. 

By making this announcement, our company has taken the first step in correcting something that, in the words of our CEO, “didn’t align with our one-team culture and didn’t feel like Delta.” 

While we are happy that the company has taken this first step, we, the undersigned employees, feel that to truly align with our CEO’s statement, Delta Air Lines should retroactively compensate us for the profit sharing payout that we did not receive for all the year 2016 and the first three quarters of 2017 under the new profit sharing formula.

As Above and Below Wing ACS Employees, Reservations and Sale Agents, and Flight Attendants, we worked as diligently as the pilots to make Delta Air Lines the most profitable airline, and the best airline, in the country. By retroactively compensating us, Delta Air Lines would bring our 2016 and 2017 profit sharing compensation in line with the pilots, something we can all agree, is the fair, and equitable thing to do.

The Undersigned Delta Air Lines Employees
