Delta’s CEO Richard Anderson: The 40 Boeing 737-900 ERs and 20 Embraer E190s will be cancelled

Delta Air Lines (Atlanta) management team held a conference call yesterday, mainly with the analysts and representatives of the media, after posting a record second quarter profit, beating all Wall Street forecasts.

In the conference call, CEO Richard Anderson when asked about the rejection of the proposed contract by the pilots, stated, without elaborating further, the 40 Boeing 737-900 ERs and 20 Embraer ERJ 190s on order “will be cancelled”. The company had tied these two orders with the ratification of the new pilot contract.

The comment could be considered posturing by some observers, intended as a new salvo to the pilots for the next round of contract negotiations.

The pilots, represented by ALPA, voted nearly two-to-one against the proposed contract. Both sides will now have about six months to further negotiate new terms in which both sides can agree.

ALPA has not formally responded to the comments.

The Embraers would have represented a new lower level of mainline flying.
