Delta Air Lines pilots and other employees will get nearly 10% of the company's stock beginning today. A company spokeswoman said a worker earning $40,000 a year would receive stock valued at roughly $6,100 before taxes, and the shares can be traded immediately. "Delta stands behind its promise that its people will directly participate in and benefit from the growth and future success of the combined company," she said. New employees brought on by the merger with Northwest Airlines also are included in the plan.
