Let's look at airlines trading in North America above $500M in market cap:
1. Stock Returns
2. Net Income
3. Earnings from Continuing Operations Margin %

Stock Returns
Delta Airlines is vastly out-performing the large cap airlines, while American Airlines is vastly under-performing.

Net Income (TTM)
This is how big Delta is relative to its peers in terms of realized net income in the last year.

Earnings from Continuing Operations %
Just we can be clear that the net income number isn't somehow wildly distorted by non-continuing (one-time realized  gains) operations, we can see DAL has far higher earnings from continuing operation margins than every other US airline.

This is trade analysis, not a recommendation.

Legal Stuff:
Options involve risk. Prior to buying or selling an option, an investor must receive a copy of Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options. Investors need a broker to trade options, and must meet suitability requirements.
