“We truly look at Aeromexico as an extension of Delta,” Bastian said Monday in a speech to annual convention of the Hispanic Corporate Council of Atlanta event held at the Delta Flight Museum, according to Global Atlanta reporter Trevor Williams. “I don’t know what they’re going to do with the wall they keep talking about, but we’re going to fly over that damn thing, whatever it is. We’re not going to let a little wall get in the way of progress and taking care of people.”
Bastian didn’t mention the name of President Donald Trump, the Global Atlanta report noted. But the Delta CEO also added this:
“There’s a lot of anxiety, a lot of fear that cuts into the heart of who we are as a society. It’s caused a lot of people to wonder what’s going on and where are we going,” he said.
