DSC_4940Delta Air Lines said that it has experienced 200 days this year without a flight cancellation in its mainline operations, a record both for itself and the airline industry.

The figure is a dramatic change from 2010, when the Atlanta-based carrier had zero days without a cancellation, a figure that improved to ten the following year. In the previous calendar year, Delta reported 161 cancellation-free days.

Department of Transportation cancellation data reveals that Delta is the first to achieve 200 cancellation-free days in a calendar year.

So far this year, Delta has flown over 157 million passengers on approximately 910,000 mainline flights.
