Each major airline throughout the world is of course somewhat different. But you may not realize exactly what it means to be a “big” airline — and fly for one of them. Here’s what you can expect, in terms of where you might fly, if, for example, you were hired by Delta Airlines.
Delta serves 332 destinations in 57 countries. They introduced 60 new international routes just last year and have added more international capacity than other US airlines combined. Delta has more flights across the Atlantic, with flights to 36 trans-Atlantic destinations. To Latin American and the Caribbean, Delta offers nearly 700 weekly flights to 63 destinations. Delta boarded 9.1 million passengers just during May 2007 alone. Ready to start flight school now and become part of such an exciting industry?
