Delta and Trump are Going to Make America Great Again

The Atlanta-based airliner released a Tuesday statement detailing the dissolution of a contract with Boeing for 18 787 Dreamliners, valued just north of $4 billion.


Delta inherited the deal when they acquired Northwest Airlines back in 2008.

The statement also explained “Delta will continue to take delivery of new 737-900ER aircraft through 2019 as two orders totaling 120 of the narrowbody jet are fulfilled.”

“Delta is one of the world’s largest operators of Boeing aircraft and our valued partnership with Boeing will remain strong as we safely and comfortably serve our customers across the world every day,” Delta Senior Vice President Greg May said of the decision to cancel the order. “This business decision is consistent with Delta’s fleet strategy to prudently address our widebody aircraft needs.”


Delta’s announcement comes exactly three weeks after President-elect Donald Trump tweeted a “cancel order” for Boeing’s 747 Air Force One project, also estimated to cost upwards of $4 billion dollars.
