Delta and other airlines are facing headwinds from weather and rising cases of omicron, but Delta CEO Ed Bastian predicts a travel rebound at the end of February. Speaking with CNBC’s Phil LeBeau and the ‘Squawk Box’ team, Bastian reacts to the company’s latest quarterly earnings report, the rising cost of oil, and Delta’s ranking on 2022′s “Just 100” list. After lobbying the CDC to shorten quarantine guidelines from 10 to 5 days to mitigate airline staffing issues, Delta is now facing backlash from the Association of Flight Attendants and its president, Sara Nelson. Plus, new year, new hairdos!
