Capacity Expansion, Cost Cutbacks Should Lift Delta’s Results

The third largest network carrier in the U.S., behind American and United, is coming off solid results in the first three quarters in which it cumulatively posted $2.2 billion in profit (excluding special items) and 7% year-on-year growth in top line. In the fourth quarter, we expect Delta to continue to post strong growth in its top line on gains from capacity expansion. The carrier’s profit will likely also rise on benefits from cost cutbacks and lower jet fuel prices.
