Delta management said in a written statement: “Delta agrees that a tentative agreement can be reached this summer. Delta remains committed to reaching an industry-leading deal that is also sustainable and market-based. We believe that our pilots are the best in the industry and should continue to be the best paid."
The current Delta pilots contract extended until the end of 2015, making it amendable since the beginning of the year.
The two sides turned to federal mediation in March.
