Delta Air Lines' announcement this week of its acquiring a 49% stake in Virgin Atlantic has been met with approval by many in the travel agent industry. Agents point out the partnership's benefits for fliers who need to transition from domestic Delta flights to Virgin Atlantic. The joint venture will also widen options for business travelers, says Jennifer Wilson-Buttigieg, co-owner of Valerie Wilson Travel in New York. "Delta has huge hubs and has been investing a lot at New York airports. It gives more flight lift into a variety of places," Wilson-Buttigieg said.
