In 1996 the Olympic Games were in Atlanta and in 2002 they are in Salt Lake City. Both of these cities are Delta hubs and it's a fact that they make huge money off of these events. Any ideas if Delta has any influence in this or is the Olympic commitee partial to Delta?

Delta is also the only American airline flying from Athens (2004), Greece to the US. I remeber that Delta suspended the Oslo-JFK service shortly after the Lillehammer Winter Olympics in 1994. But there is probably no connection between the IOC and Delta Air Lines.

If I am not mistaken, the "official" airline can vary from Olympic games to Olympic games. I think that the airline bids for the right to tout themselves as the official carrier. In 1984 Pan Am was the official carrier to Sarajevo, United has also been the official carrier I think, of course Delta, Quantas, among others. Right or wrong?
