Delta Air lines plans to shut down its seat-sharing service Delta Airlines plans to close its seat sharing service for all airlines by the end of 2019.
The decision was announced by CEO Richard Anderson on Thursday in a conference call with analysts.
He also said that the company has no new plans to expand the airline.
“We are ending the Delta Airline Seat Sharing service,” Anderson said.
“I think that is the right decision.
It is one of the most important decisions I have ever made in my career.
I have not made one in this company, nor have I ever made one as CEO of Delta.”
The decision is a big one for the company, as it has faced increasing competition from rivals such as American Airlines and Virgin America.
The company also faced a wave of lawsuits from customers who were unhappy with the service.
The carrier is not the only airline to have shut down seat-share programs.
JetBlue and United have done the same.
American Airlines, American Express and United has also closed their programs.
Delta has faced an onslaught of lawsuits that accuse it of violating the Federal Trade Commission’s anti-discrimination law, and it has been in the middle of a class action lawsuit over its seat service.
In 2015, Delta announced it would be discontinuing its service.
“As the largest airline in the world, Delta has always been a leader in our industry and our customers’ rights,” Anderson told analysts.
“Today’s decision is an important one for Delta, our valued customers, our employees, and the Delta family.”
Delta Air line is a popular way to travel between major cities and destinations such as New York and Los Angeles, but the company plans to continue offering its service to some customers in the future.
The airline has faced criticism over its seating policy and seat sharing policy, but Anderson defended the company’s policies, saying they are in line with the industry’s expectations.
“The Delta Air Line is the leading airline in America and we want to ensure our passengers and employees are treated fairly and with dignity and respect,” he said.
