Delta Communicates Flight Cancellations

Temp 1Delta announced that about 375 flights were cancelled because of weather conditions around Atlanta. In a short statement on its website, Delta explained the decision and provided customers with sources for more information.

Since the first announcement, Delta posted a large notice on the site: "UPDATED: Delta teams working through night to reset ATL operations." The company also posted updates at noon and again at 4 pm.

Discussion:

  • Read the entire statement on the Delta website. Analyze the primary audience and identify the communication objectives. How well does the company meet these objectives?
  • Assess the organization. Where are the main points, and how is the rest of the message structured?
