 DELTA AIR TO OFFER NONSTOP SERVICE BETWEEN DETROIT AND LONDON
 DETROIT, Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) today announced it will begin offering daily nonstop service between Detroit and London Saturday, Dec. 14.
 The service between the two cities is made possible by an emergency exemption granted by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
 Delta's Flight 24 will depart Detroit Metro Wayne County Airport at 7:35 p.m. each day and arrive at London's Gatwick Airport at 7:55 a.m. the following day. The return flight leaves London at 10 a.m. and arrives in Detroit at 1:35 p.m. the same day. The airline's new service will operate with Airbus A310 aircraft.
 "We are pleased that the Department of Transportation has granted Delta temporary authority to serve the route," said Neil Curtis, the airline's district director of marketing in Detroit. "The designation of Delta ensures that Detroit passengers will have daily service on this important route. This is a very positive step toward our offering permanent service between Detroit and London, and we hope to receive final DOT designation in the near future."
 A major world airline, Delta traces its service to Detroit back to 1945 and has led the largest U.S. carriers in passenger satisfaction for 17 consecutive years, according to U.S. Department of Transportation statistics. Effective Dec. 15, the airline will operate more than 2,800 flights each day to 215 cities in 33 countries around the world.
