Press Release

Rep. John Lewis made this statement today regarding U.S. Airways' withdrawal of their bid to purchase Delta Airlines. He has been a strong supporter of Delta's independence.

"This is great news for Delta and for Atlanta. Delta is an outstanding corporate citizen, and it deserves the support of all of us. The pilots, flight attendants, machinists, mechanics, and all the rank and file employees of Delta have demonstrated their unyielding support for this institution. Because of their sacrifice and the reasonable judgments of the creditors, Delta will continue to be a strong, healthy, and independent contributor to the Atlanta metropolitan community."
