Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) today reported financial and operating performance for November 2014.

 

Consolidated passenger unit revenue (PRASM) for the month of November increased 4.5 percent year over year, driven by the strong unit revenue performance in the domestic entity, with particular strength in Atlanta and Seattle, along with the calendar placement of the Thanksgiving holiday which shifted the highest revenue day of the year from December back into November.

Delta carried more than 2.6 million passengers on over 28,000 flights over the Thanksgiving holiday, with a monthly completion factor of 99.9 percent and an on-time arrival rate of 86.6 percent.
