Company Profile: New Delta CEO Promises Stability

New Delta CEO Promises Stability

Richard Anderson, Delta Air Lines' new CEO, says the carrier will be a secure, stable employer.
 Anderson has also moved to extinguish rumors about a possible merger with his former employer, Northwest Airlines. In an interview with Atlanta's WXIA-TV, the airline's new chief said he is committed to never seeing the bankruptcy court again and to running an airline known as a truly global carrier. 'stability and security, we want to control our own destiny and we want our employees to have stability and to have prosperity in their careers at Delta,' said Anderson. 'We will be ferocious competitors.'

On the subject of the rumored merger talks he said, 'There is no deal with Northwest, no deal contemplated with Northwest, no discussions with Northwest,' he said. "If you want to think what two words with respect of our view of consolidation, it's strength and control." The bottom line, said Anderson, is that Delta will go it alone or will take over somebody else. And, as the carrier continues to gain financial altitude after coming out of bankruptcy, Anderson said. "We have to maintain sustainable revenue growth and sustainable profitability.'

Anderson also said the carrier must always be vigilant about its balance sheet and operating costs. That means matching airfare sales and special deals. Of equal importance, he said, is regaining confidence among Delta's 48,000 employees that cuts in staff, pay and benefits are behind them. 'stability and security, we want to control our own destiny and we want our employees to have stability and to have prosperity in their careers at Delta,' said Anderson. Delta's flight plan now calls for substantial international growth with the airline setting its sights on China, Africa and the Middle East while containing costs, bettering service and keeping the carrier's customer base.
