Delta’s Flight Superintendents Ratify Agreement

Delta Air Lines announced
today that Delta’s 185 Flight Superintendents, represented by the
Professional Airline Flight Control Association (PAFCA), have ratified a
new five-year agreement. Of votes cast, 95 percent of the Flight
Superintendents voted in favor of the new agreement. “This vote sends a strong signal that our Flight Superintendents are ready
and willing to participate in Delta’s transformation,” said Neil Stronach,
vice president, Operations Planning, Control and Reliability Center. “We
can only be successful over the long run by reducing costs while improving
customer service, and the foundation to service is reliability. Our Flight
Superintendents are instrumental in helping Delta achieve operational
excellence, one of our transformation cornerstones, and we look forward to
sharing the success that these sacrifices make possible.”

The new contract includes a 10 percent wage reduction and significant
productivity enhancements. The Flight Superintendents also agreed to
closely align their benefits with those of Delta’s non-contract employees,
including converting to a cash balance retirement plan. These changes will
result in significant cost savings for Delta.
