DELTA INAUGURATES NONSTOP SERVICE BETWEEN LOS ANGELES AND FRANKFURT; AIRLINE OPERATES MORE FLIGHTS BETWEEN U.S. AND EUROPE THAN ANY OTHER
 LOS ANGELES, May 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) will inaugurate daily nonstop service from Los Angeles International Airport to Frankfurt, Germany, Tuesday, May 9.
 "Delta continues to increase its commitment to Southern California with this our first nonstop destination in Europe from Los Angeles," said Vince Durocher, the airline's district director of marketing. "Our Frankfurt flight allows local travelers to conduct a full day of business before departing for Europe in comfort and style. This new service is sure to bring added convenience to Los Angeles shippers and travelers, and it gives us great pleasure to provide even more air service accessibility to the area and for its citizens."
 Delta's Frankfurt service departs Los Angeles at 6:10 p.m. each day and arrives in the German city at 1:55 p.m. the following afternoon. The return flight leaves Frankfurt at 1:15 p.m. and arrives in Los Angeles at 3:55 p.m. the same day. The Frankfurt flights will operate with 218-passenger Boeing 767-332 extended-range aircraft, configured in three classes of comfort and service.
 Since February 1991, Delta has expanded its international operations from Los Angeles substantially, adding nonstop flights to Tokyo and direct service to Brussels, Hong Kong and Nagoya. The airline also serves points throughout Canada and Mexico from Los Angeles. Delta's international service features the convenience of a Federal Customs and Immigration facility right in the Delta terminal at Los Angeles International, enabling arriving travelers to move quickly from the airport or to connecting Delta flights.
 Delta will operate a total of 277 flights each week across the Atlantic beginning this summer -- more service between the U.S. and Europe than any other airline in the world. Delta's June schedule features nonstop service to 23 European cities from 10 U.S. gateways. Southern California passengers will find connections to these nonstop destinations as well as other cities in Europe and the Middle East through the airline's Kennedy Flight Center in New York City. A major world airline, Delta operates more than 2,830 flights each day to 222 cities in 34 countries around the globe.
