Fewer Cancellations as Omicron Impact Diminishes

Delta’s operation stabilized over the past week, with significantly fewer disruptions to our flight schedule, most of which were attributed to winter weather.

As impacts from the omicron variant lessen, less than 1% of our scheduled flights were canceled Wednesday across Delta’s mainline and Delta Connection operations. As of noon Thursday, just three mainline and no Delta Connection cancellations were processed for the day’s schedule.

Over the past week, about 60% of all cancellations systemwide were due to weather. One-third were attributed mainly to the effects of omicron. Over that same period, our mainline completion rate has been 99%, and 94% for Delta Connection. We are once again leading our competitors in completion reliability for the month of January.
