Delta raked in almost $44 billion in annual revenue in 2018, an 8% increase from the year prior (and $3.9 billion in annual profits, up 10%). Those dollars were hard-fought: Like its peers, Delta saw a steep increase in fuel expenses in 2018, to the tune of 30%. What’s more, reduced government travel following last year’s federal shutdown hit the airline hard, costing the company $25 million a month. Still, operational efficiencies helped lead the U.S.’s second largest airline to success. Delta went a record 251 days without a cancellation—the kind of performance that helped stoke demand from travelers.
