 DELTA AIR REPORTS RECORD JULY TRAFFIC
 ATLANTA, Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL)


today reported traffic results for July 1992.
 Revenue passenger miles (RPMs) totaled 8.241 billion during July. This was Delta's busiest month ever and represents a 31.5 percent increase over the same month a year earlier. Capacity grew 21.0 percent to 11.555 billion available seat miles (ASMs). The load factor for July 1992 was 71.32 percent. Passenger boardings for July totaled 8,382,102, a new one-month record. A new one-day boarding record of 311,460 passengers was set on July 31.
 For the year-to-date, Delta's traffic grew 19.4 percent to 45.515 billion RPMs, while capacity increased 22.0 percent to 75.987 billion ASMs. The load factor for the first seven months of 1992 was 59.90 percent. Passenger boardings for the period totaled 47,232,190.
 Delta Senior Vice President - Marketing Robert W. Coggin said: "System revenue passenger miles and passenger enplanements for July 1992 set new monthly records at Delta. This growth in traffic resulted from a significant expansion of international operations and deeply discounted fare promotions. These promotions' dilutive effect on passenger mile yield resulted in a negative impact on passenger revenue."
