Reviews
Excellent insight is gained not only into the history of airlines but also into the difficult role of entrepreneurs in blending finance, human relations, and technology to produce a service-oriented organization. . . . Those interested in either business history of transportation will enjoy the book on this blue chip airline.-- "Transportation Journal"
A detailed narrative account of the fifty-year history if Delta Air Lines . . . Should appeal to both the general reader and the student of American transportation history.-- "American Historical Review"
If it is not the perfect business history, it is close enough to be used as a model of what a business history should be. Both Delta Airlines and the authors are to be congratulated.-- "Journal of Economic History"
Delta is definitive and is among the best business history available.-- "Technology and Culture"
