JUNE IS DELTA AIR'S BUSIEST MONTH EVER

 JUNE IS DELTA AIR'S BUSIEST MONTH EVER
 ATLANTA, July 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) today


reported traffic results for June 1992.
 Revenue passenger miles (RPMs) totaled 7.468 billion during June, a 25.8 percent increase over the same month a year earlier. Capacity grew 21.6 percent to 11.188 billion available seat miles (ASMs). The load factor for June 1992 was 66.75 percent. Passenger boardings for June totaled 7,677,185.
 For the year to date, Delta's traffic grew 17.0 percent to 37.274 billion RPMs, while capacity increased 22.1 percent to 64.432 billion ASMs. The load factor for the first six months of 1992 was 57.85 percent. Passenger boardings for the period totaled 38,850,088.
 Commenting on the results, Al Kolakowski, senior vice president - sales, said: "System revenue passenger miles and passenger enplanements for June 1992 reached the highest monthly levels in Delta's history. The increase in domestic traffic during June is primarily related to deeply discounted fare promotions. The dilutive effect of these promotions on the passenger mile yield, however, more than offsets the increase in domestic traffic, resulting in a negative impact on passenger revenue for the month."
