"Initiative Is A Positive For Customers And Employees"
The news of Delta Air Lines' new "Clean Campaign," -- an
initiative the airline says "includes increasing the frequency of
aircraft deep cleans and completing its on-going program to
refurbish aircraft interiors"... in part, by using employees who
volunteer to donate their time, off-the-clock, to help clean
the cabins of Delta aircraft -- has received some criticism from pundits
Coinciding with its announcement Thursday that the
airline will exercise purchase options on 79 new Boeing 737-700s,
Southwest Airlines has announced a $1 billion order (at list price)
for CFM56-7B engines to power the planes.
