We Think Delta Is the Best Positioned U.S. Legacy Carrier

Burkett Huey, CFA Equity Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Brian Bernard, CFA, CPA |

We believe Delta is the highest-quality legacy carrier because it has been able to attract high-yielding business travelers through its product segmentation and credit card partnerships, primarily with American Express. Delta’s five-cabin segmentation strategy allows high-spending travelers to purchase premium options when they are able to. Frequently, business travelers use miles from a cobranded credit card to upgrade flights when their company is unwilling to pay a premium price. American Express pays top dollar for the miles given to these business travelers, as Delta-cobranded cards alone account for about a fifth of American Express’ loan book. We’re confident that Delta can continue expanding this higher-margin business after the pandemic.

Delta operates a hub-and-spoke system network, where it gathers and distributes passengers across the globe through key locations such as Atlanta, New York, Salt Lake City, Detroit, Seattle, and Minneapolis-St. Paul. Delta’s sale of frequent flier miles, particularly to American Express, is a major driver of the firm’s profits.
