Delta Comes Out …of Bankruptcy

Oh, and the big super secret new Delta livery? You saw it here on PlaneBuzz — almost a month ago.

I have to admit, watching Delta CEO Jerry Grinstein jumping around to the sounds of U2 onstage in front of hundreds of screaming Delta employees was a bit disturbing.  It brought back unpleasant memories of Independence Air’s rollout and CEO Kerry Skeen’s appearance on stage. Although one of our readers who was at that infamous Indy AIr roll out tells me that event was much closer to a ‘religious experience.’

For you airline stock fans, shares of the reinvigorated Delta shares are scheduled to begin trading again on the NYSE on Thursday.
