ATLANTA, Nov. 30, 2006 – Delta Air Lines today issued the following statement:
“Consistent with our obligation to review US Airways’ unsolicited proposal, today we, along with representatives of our Creditors’ Committee, met to listen to US Airways’ presentation concerning US Airways' proposal to merge with Delta.
While we will fulfill this obligation, we will, as we have stated, continue to progress toward filing our stand-alone plan by the end of the year, which would have us emerge from bankruptcy as a highly competitive, independent and financially sound airline by mid-2007. Our plan is working and we have tremendous, hard-won confidence in it.”
