Delta pilots protested outside of the Atlanta airport Thursday, complaining of exhaustion and long hours ahead of Labor Day weekend.
Delta pilots have held sporadic protests throughout 2022, with their largest demonstration taking place the week of Independence Day.
"As pilots, we are beyond exhausted — they are trying to get us to fly to the maximums," Allied Pilots Association chairman Dennis Tajer said in June.
Flight attendants joined pilots in their protests earlier this year. Pilots with the company haven't negotiated a new contract since 2016.
