Delta Air Lines is giving employees a profit-sharing payout on Employee Appreciation Day next month to thank them for their efforts during the "toughest year" in the airline's 95-year history.
In a memo Thursday, CEO Ed Bastian said commended employees for providing "unmatched service" amid another year set against a raging pandemic.
To thank them, Bastian said every employee who worked the entirety of 2021 would get a payment of $1,250 on Feb. 14, otherwise known as Employee Appreciation Day, based on the profits the carrier made in the second half of 2021.

The collective payout totals more than $100 million, according to Delta.
Although the Atlanta-based airline was only profitable for the second half of the year, the carrier is still able to offer a one-time profit-sharing payment to all of its current employees, according to Bastian.
