The Song brand was placed on more than 200 flights a day which carried over ten million passengers. The airline was notable for affordable prices and luxury amenities, including leather seating, increased legroom, personal entertainment screens, and an emphasis on branding.

The Song brand was dissolved in 2006 following Delta's bankruptcy restructuring, with all of Song's aircraft, routes, and staff reverting to Delta. Many of Song's more popular features, including leather seating, personal entertainment systems, and simpler booking system, were integrated into Delta's flights as part of their post-bankruptcy rebranding.[3] Song's last flight took off on April 30, 2006. On January 1, 2008, Delta began repainting the last aircraft bearing the Song livery into mainline Delta Air Lines colors.
