Good news indeed to still be posting month over year increases in traffic - not too many are, and record loads. I'm glad also to see in another part of the article that yeilds over the Atlantic are improving. But the load factor over the Atlantic was pretty weak in comparison at just 68%. Granted - it's the slowest month of the year for Euro travel - but I wonder if DL will throttle back European flying moreso next winter than they did this winter to compensate and use the equipment on more southern routes where possible. The seasonal capacity adjustments this winter were surprisingly lighter than I expected.

Life's tough. It's even tougher if you're stupid. J. Wayne
