Delta Holds Bell-Ringing Ceremony to Commemorate Reemergence

Delta Holds Bell-Ringing Ceremony to Commemorate Reemergence
After two turbulent years, which included being in bankruptcy protection and rebuffing a hostile takeover, Delta leaders, employees, and partners were all smiles May 3 as the company officially emerged from Chapter 11 and re-listed its common stock on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).

To symbolize the Opening Bell of the NYSE, hundreds of Delta employees and well-wishers gathered in the Delta International Ticketing Lobby to ring tiny red, white or blue bells while they watched a live satellite feed from New York. Meanwhile, a public address system blared out the perennial celebration mantra, “Let’s celebrate.” Hundreds of people did just that by hugging, giving high fives, cheering, and even crying, in acknowledgement of their long journey and ultimate victory.
