MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Delta Air Lines is showing a lot of love to its employees this Valentine’s Day weekend. The airline made a big profit in 2014 and employees are getting to share in some of it.
The company reported earnings of nearly $3 billion last year. As a result, it will pay out an industry record $1.1 billion to its employees.
More than $110 million of that will go to local, Minneapolis-based workers. Delta said that is a record for the airline industry.
The airline says individual payouts will be about two months’ worth of an employee’s salary.
