Delta Fattens Margins

Delta Air Lines has booked an $800m profit for Q2 2014, a 17 per cent increase on the same period in 2013.

On top of a nine per cent sales boost, the carrier achieved a significant saving on its fuel costs, allowing it to stretch its operating margin from 11 to 15 per cent.

“We expect our September quarter performance will be even stronger, as we expand our operating margins to 15-17 per cent and further improve our profitability," said Delta CEO Richard Anderson in a statement.
