Skift Take

When comparing Delta, United, and American Airlines, which operate in similar markets with comparable business models, we found key data points that show where they can find an edge.

Delta, United, and American Airlines are three of the biggest airlines – not just in the United States but also globally.

Before Covid hit, they had largely identical business models and mostly operated in the same markets. But the strategies they deployed during and after the pandemic created more distinctions.

In this new Skift research, we provide a 20-chart factbook comparing Delta, United, and American on key financial metrics. We also look at their domestic and international networks, loyalty program revenues, and fleet composition for a broader view of overall operations.
