Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian reported (22-Apr-2020) the carrier has "no interest" in selling or monetising its investments in international partners "at this point or anytime in the future". He noted the carrier will work with these partners "as the recovery takes hold", with the expectation that recovery will "slower internationally than domestically". Mr Bastian also commented that Delta is "not in a position to be making any financial commitments to any" of its partners, as they "are aware".
