 DELTA AIR LINES REPORTS FEBRUARY TRAFFIC
 ATLANTA, March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL)


today reported traffic results for February 1992.
 Revenue passenger miles (RPMs) totaled 5.370 billion during February, a 17.4 percent increase over the same month a year earlier. Capacity grew 27.4 percent to 10.012 billion available seat miles (ASMs). The load factor for February 1992 was 53.64 percent. Passenger boardings for February totaled 5,751,850.
 For the year to date, Delta's traffic grew 16.2 percent to 11.009 billion RPMs, while capacity increased 26.2 percent to 20.644 billion ASMs. The load factor for the first two months of 1992 was 53.33 percent. Passenger boardings for the period totaled 11,626,222.
 February domestic traffic comparisons reflect the impact of a major discount fare promotion in 1991 and the demise of a significant competitor. Strong international traffic growth was the result of the company's expanded international operations and weak demand a year ago due to the Middle East crisis. All traffic was impacted positively by February 1992's extra day.
