The Keep Delta My Delta campaign was an employee-driven response to US Air's hostile takeover bid for Delta on November 15, 2006. The campaign was launched on November 17, 2006, by the Delta Board Council, which represents the non-contract employees of Delta to the company's executive management and Board of Directors. Delta hired the Ketchum public relations agency to develop a campaign based on the Delta employee-created tagline, “Keep Delta My Delta,” which launched nationwide on December 19, 2006 – the same day Delta filed its Plan of Reorganization with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court and officially rejected US Airways’ unsolicited merger proposal.
US Air withdrew its offer on January 31, 2007, after the Delta creditors' committee failed to support it and approved Delta's restructuring plan. Delta successfully emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy on April 30, 2007.
