ATLANTA, Nov. 9, 2006 – Delta Air Lines today announced plans to recall an additional 1,000 flight attendants in 2007. This latest recall is scheduled to begin in January with as many as 500 previously furloughed flight attendants scheduled for training in the first few months of the year. “Our recalls will help ensure a smoother operation for our customers and our people as we build a more competitive network during what is the largest and most exciting international expansion in Delta’s history,” said Jim Whitehurst, Delta’s chief operating officer. Delta has added or announced more than 70 new international routes since fall 2005, with many of the routes beginning later this year and during 2007.
