When we last talked with Ed Bastian in 2016, he had only just been appointed CEO of Delta Air Lines. This time we caught up with him at Los Angeles International Airport as he stepped off a flight from Atlanta. He talked about the company's plans to spend billions on remodeling and updating airports across the country, including $2 billion at LAX; why he thinks his airline has figured out how to break through the boom-and-bust cycle of the industry; and what he said to the CEO of Boeing.
