DELTA AIR LINES REPORTS NOVEMBER TRAFFIC GROWTH

 DELTA AIR LINES REPORTS NOVEMBER TRAFFIC GROWTH
 ATLANTA, Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL)


today reported traffic results for November 1991.
 Revenue passenger miles (RPMs) totaled 5.427 billion during November, a 19.4 percent increase over the same month a year earlier. Capacity grew 19.9 percent to 9.972 billion available seat miles. The load factor for November 1991 was 54.42 percent.
 Commenting on the November traffic results, Al Kolakowski, Delta's senior vice president - marketing, stated: "The company continued to experience domestic load factor gains in November. However, due to an apparent weakening of the economy, year-over-year domestic traffic and yield gains were not as great as in recent months. These trends are expected to continue into December.
 "November load factor and yield performance in our new transatlantic markets met our expectations," Kolakowski continued. "We are encouraged by forward bookings on these routes."
 Passenger boardings for November totaled 5,888,466.
