DELTA AIR LINES BRINGS NEW-TECHNOLOGY MD-11 AIRCRAFT TO PORTLAND

 DELTA AIR LINES BRINGS NEW-TECHNOLOGY MD-11 AIRCRAFT TO PORTLAND
 PORTLAND, Ore., April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL), the first air carrier to place the McDonnell Douglas MD- 11 into scheduled trans-Pacific passenger service, is bringing the new-technology aircraft to Portland.
 Delta will introduce daily MD-11 flights on its services to Los Angeles and Nagoya, Japan, from Portland effective today.
 The MD-11 aircraft features the latest technical advances in aerodynamics, propulsion, aircraft systems, cockpit avionics and cabin design. Delta's MD-11, with passenger accommodations in three classes of service, offers a new standard of passenger comfort as well as a tremendous cargo capacity providing superior service for shippers.
 "This aircraft was chosen as the flagship of Delta's Pacific Rim operations following an in-depth analysis of our future plans in the international arena and the long-range aircraft available," said David Zielke, the airline's district marketing manager in Portland. "Overall, the Delta MD-11 offers more space per passenger in both business and coach classes than any other wide-body plane in production. The first class cabin, with its roomy leather sleeper seats, is very impressive as well."
 Delta was a launch customer for the MD-11 and has leased two of the aircraft since February 1991 for use on its service between Los Angeles and Tokyo. The MD-11s serving Portland, unlike the leased aircraft, were designed specifically for Delta, and a number of passenger service improvements have been incorporated. Delta will add more MD-11 service next month when the aircraft is placed on Delta's daily flights from Portland to Seoul, Taipei and Bangkok.
 A major global air carrier, Delta offers 22 daily departures to 12 nonstop destinations from Portland International. The airline's 551 modern aircraft operate 2,870 daily flights serving 221 cities in 34 countries around the world.
