The fall in fuel prices has allowed Delta Air Lines to invest in other areas of the business, CEO Richard Anderson said Thursday.
"We bought a lot of Boeing airplanes and [are] building a lot of new facilities, and are really working hard on our product," Anderson told CNBC's "Squawk Box." "It's been awesome. It's just awesome."
Delta said Wednesday said it ordered 20 new Boeing 737-900ER jets and 20 Embraer SA E190 planes that were in Boeing's possession, aimed at reducing the airline's use of smaller aircraft that it contracts regional carriers to fly.
