Delta Air Lines hopes to be a good sport in L.A.
In the battle to become Los Angeles’ favorite air carrier, Delta Air Lines is trying to win over Angelenos through our love of sports.
The Atlanta-based carrier is the second most popular airline at Los Angeles International Airport, behind American Airlines. With its big-spending business executives and Hollywood celebrities, Los Angeles has become a coveted market for the nation’s airlines.
For hockey fans, Delta is offering free early-boarding privileges to any passenger who shows up at LAX wearing Los Angeles Kings gear. The offer lasts throughout the Kings’ NHL playoff run and includes all Kings gear, including hats and jerseys.
“In our relentless pursuit to become the airline of choice for Angelenos, Delta is committed to the entities and organizations that are vital to sustaining the city’s important sports and entertainment industries,” said Ranjan Goswami, Delta vice president of sales for the West.
