Company Watch - Delta Air Lines.
Van Wijk confirmed that discussions were taking place between KLM's partner Air France and Delta. With the introduction of Eurostar services from St. Pancras to Paris in November the loss of a few flights out of London to the French capital would not be noticed. Delta is already established between Gatwick and New York, but it is its Atlanta flight that might move first. Air France would promote the flights as part of its system under the code share arrangement. West coast destinations in the US have not been ruled out. Jun 5, 2007

Capacity was up 0.6% to 12.48 billion ASMs on a 4.8% domestic decline and a 13.1% international increase. Load factor grew 4.1 points to 80.8%, climbing 6.1 points to 81.9% domestically and dipping 0.2 point to 78.5% internationally. Jun 7, 2007
