Delta Reports Financial and Operating Performance for January 2014

Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) today reported financial and operating performance for January 2014.

Consolidated passenger unit revenue (PRASM) for the month of January increased 5.0% year over year driven by continuing strong domestic demand and corporate revenue gains.

January’s PRASM includes 0.5 point of benefit from these weather-related cancellations.

„Delta’s employees are the best in the business, and I want thank them for their hard work and dedication during a major winter weather event,” said Richard Anderson, Delta’s CEO. „Despite the challenges of the weather, especially in Atlanta, Delta people remained committed to taking care of our customers.”
