ATLANTA � Compared with some pilots whose airlines went into bankruptcy protection, retired Delta Air Lines Inc. pilots might feel they’re sitting pretty. Delta emerged last week from Chapter 11 protection, in which it had spent the past 19 months. Terms of the bankruptcy deal call for Delta to pay retired pilots an estimated 65 cents for every dollar owed by their supplemental retirement plan, and an estimated 85 cents for a qualified plan, said G. Dean Booth of Miller & Martin’s Atlanta office. Retired pilots of US Airways, which emerged from bankruptcy in 2005, could get an average of about 30 cents on the dollar, depending on the result of ongoing litigation, Booth said. Retired Delta pilots had one of the largest claims of any creditor group � about $1.3 billion, Booth said. Booth represented about 6,000 pilot members. Retired pilots aren’t the only ones who believe Delta did well during its stay in bankruptcy court. More than 95% of Delta’s creditors voted in favor of Delta’s bankruptcy reorganization plan. In re Delta Air Lines, No. 1-05-bk-17923.
