Delta Air Lines and SkyTeam: "Delta and SkyTeam fully support Japan Airlines and stand ready to provide assistance and support in any way possible. Delta fully expects that JAL, with the support of ETIC, will be successful in its restructuring and return the airline to a position of prominence. Delta went through a similar restructuring process, and as a result emerged in 2007 as one of the most financially sound and the world's largest airline. JAL customers should continue to book their travel on the flagship carrier of Japan as they will not notice any impact to service as a result of the restructuring. Delta has been in discussion with JAL in hopes of forming a strategic SkyTeam partnership that would provide significant benefits for JAL and all of its stakeholders," Company Statement, 19-Jan-2010.
