Delta Air Lines To Give Employees 4% Pay Rise

September 1, 2019


Delta Air Lines is giving its employees a little something special heading into the long weekend. For those readers who are unaware, it is currently a long weekend to celebrate Labor Day. And, this weekend, Delta announced that its employees will receive a 4% raise. This is excellent news for their employees, who can be some of the friendliest in the skies.

The announcement

One Mile At A Time reports that the raises will go in effect from October 1st, 2019. This announcement did not come with much fanfare. Instead, CEO Ed Bastian circulated a letter in which the airline announced the pay increases for a large number of Delta Air Lines employees.

Employees who are paid based on ground and flight attendant scales will receive a four percent increase in base pay across the board. This does exclude some flight attendants and ground employees who are covered by industry, government or collective bargaining agreements. However, the majority should see pay increases. Beyond that, merit employees will participate in a four percent merit pool for increased pay.

This comes at a time when Delta is hiring additional flight attendants for the class of 2020. It seems like the airline is doing quite well for itself, and has decided to pass along a little something extra to its employees.

Furthermore, CEO Ed Bastian went on further to say that profit sharing is expected to be better than last year. Although specific figures were not cited, this is a form of increased compensation. Hopefully, this new announcement offered Delta employees a little something extra to celebrate on Labor Day.
