Delta reports January 2017 operating performance

Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) has reported operating performance for January 2017, the airline said.

Consolidated passenger unit revenue (PRASM) for the month of January declined 2.5% year over year, consistent with the company´s expectation for the quarter. A modest benefit from holiday timing in the month was offset by a 2.5 point headwind from calendar placement and 2 points of pressure from the lapping of 2016´s winter storm Jonas.

Delta Air Lines serves nearly 180 million customers each year. Delta and the Delta Connection carriers offer service to 323 destinations in 57 countries on six continents. Headquartered in Atlanta, Delta employs more than 80,000 employees worldwide and operates a mainline fleet of more than 800 aircraft.
