Delta Air Lines today reported financial and operating performance for December 2016.

Consolidated passenger unit revenue (PRASM) for the month of December was flat year over year, driven by strong demand trends and improving close-in domestic yields as Delta’s capacity actions and revenue management strategies continue to benefit results.   

In an Investor Update issued this morning, Delta announced that it now expects unit revenue to decline 2.5-3.0 percent for the December quarter given the better than expected result for the month of December.

The company’s financial and operating performance is detailed below.
