It’s a big day for Delta in Atlanta.
The Atlanta City Council is scheduled today to take up the airline’s proposed new lease at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
By most accounts, Delta will be getting a bargain if the deal goes through, AJC reporter Kelly Yamanouchi writes.
The proposal is to keep Delta’s basic airport expenses at roughly the same level, aside from cost increases when the new international terminal opens in 2012.
Atlanta is still Delta’s largest hub by far. It operates some 1,000 daily flights from Atlanta, making it the largest airline hub in the world with nonstop flights to cities around the globe.
