Delta CEO says the government shutdown will cost $25 million this month. Delta CEO Ed Bastian made the comments on Tuesday. He blamed the revenue loss on less travel by government contractors and employees. Delta will also have to delay the introduction of new Airbus A220 jets and routes. The company is also delaying hiring for new employees that require federal clearances. The current partial government shutdown is the longest in U.S. history. It’s the result of a standoff between President Donald Trump and Democrats over a wall at the U.S. southern border. 800,000 federal employees are currently either furloughed or working without pay. TSA screeners are among the federal employees required to work without pay. TSA’s absentee rate has climbed since the shutdown, straining the security checkpoints of Delta’s hub airport in Atlanta.
