Admin/Biographical History Delta emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy on April 30, 2007, following a successful 19-month restructuring during which the airline fundamentally transformed its business. The company's Plan of Reorganization was confirmed in an order entered by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York on April 25, 2007. Delta Air Lines, Inc. began trading on the NYSE on April 26 on a when-issued basis under the ticker symbol "DAL.WI". Regular way trading began May 3, 2007 under the ticker symbol "DAL".

To commemorate Delta's emergence from Chapter 11 and the relisting of its common stock on the NYSE, the company is participated in The Opening and Closing Bell ceremonies with the NYSE. Delta executives rang The Opening Bell from the airline's newly redesigned international check-in lobby at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Delta executives, employees, customers and guests also traveled to New York to ring The Closing Bell from the NYSE bell podium overlooking the trading floor in lower Manhattan.
