Delta Pilots Reach Comprehensive Agreement in Principle on New Contract

ATLANTA--()--This morning, the pilots of Delta Air Lines, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association, Int'l (ALPA), reached a comprehensive Agreement in Principle with Delta management to amend their collective bargaining agreement.

In a letter to the pilots, Delta Master Executive Council (MEC) chairman Captain John Malone wrote, “This agreement achieves the goal of advancing the profession while raising the bar for all airline industry pilots. It recognizes and rewards the Delta pilot group for the daily contributions we make to Delta’s financial success. This achievement was possible because of the support of the Delta pilots and the extraordinary work of the ALPA negotiators and staff, as well as the Delta Air Lines leadership team. We are particularly grateful for the assistance of the National Mediation Board.”

The MEC will soon receive the full language of the agreement for a seven-day review period. If approved by the MEC, the agreement will be sent to the Delta pilots for membership ratification.

Founded in 1931, ALPA is the world’s largest pilot union, representing more than 54,000 pilots at 31 airlines in the United States and Canada. Visit the ALPA website at and the Delta MEC website at
