DELTA AIR LINES OFFERS ALL-MD-11 TRANSPACIFIC SERVICE, YOUNGEST AIRCRAFT FLEET IN MARKET

 Los Angeles - Anchorage - Hong Kong Route Receives MD-11 Service
 ATLANTA, March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL), with the introduction today of the new-technology McDonnell Douglas MD-11 aircraft on the airline's Los Angeles - Anchorage - Hong Kong route, became the first carrier to feature an all-MD-11 transpacific fleet.
 The first airline in the world to offer service across the Pacific with the ultra-modern MD-11 when it was introduced in 1991, Delta now operates the youngest, most modern fleet serving multiple destinations throughout the Pacific Rim with an average aircraft age of less than one year. The 248-passenger, state-of-the-art MD-11 represents significant advances in comfort, aerodynamics and flight systems technology. Featuring more interior space per passenger and more carry-on baggage capacity than any other widebody aircraft in production, the MD-11 is already enjoyed by passengers on Delta flights serving Atlanta, Bangkok, Los Angeles, Nagoya, Orlando, Portland, Seoul, Taipei and Tokyo.
 Delta's all-MD-11 fleet enables the airline to provide greater quality service to its cargo customers as well. The MD-11 provides more cargo capacity than a Boeing 747-400, consistently transporting cargo even with full passenger loads, luggage and heavy seasonal winds often experienced on westbound Pacific flights. Providing 5,200 cubic feet of cargo capacity, the MD-11 is designed to accommodate shipping containers loaded via an internal roller system.
 Delta is a major global airline serving destinations throughout Europe, North America and the Pacific Rim with 556 modern aircraft operating more than 2,790 flights each day.
