Delta PRASM down 6.5%

Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) said its consolidated passenger unit revenue (PRASM) for the month of August decreased 6.5 percent year over year, consistent with recent trends of pressure from foreign exchange, lower surcharges in international markets, and yields in select domestic markets.

In addition, unit revenues were negatively impacted by the timing of Labor Day holiday travel.

Including its worldwide alliance partners, Delta offers customers more than 15,000 daily flights, with key hubs and markets including Amsterdam, Atlanta, Boston, Detroit, Los Angeles, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York-JFK, New York-LaGuardia, Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Salt Lake City, Seattle and Tokyo-Narita.
