Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) today reported financial and operating performance for February 2015.

 

Consolidated passenger unit revenue (PRASM) for the month of February decreased 1.5 percent year over year, driven by 1.5 points of continuing foreign exchange pressure on international results and 0.5 point from the impact of lapping prior year's winter storms. Continuing strength in the domestic entity and corporate revenue gains offset a portion of this month's international PRASM pressure.  System capacity increased 6% for the month which includes 2 points of capacity growth from prior year's winter storms.
