Delta Airlines envisage plus de synergies entre ses "feeders" Comair, Mesaba et Compass

Sur Flight Global ( en anglais ) :

Delta Air Lines has unveiled plans to consolidate the customer service operations of its three
wholly-owned regional airlines, Comair, Mesaba and Compass, in a move that will create one of the country's largest regional ground handling operators.

The US major, which merged with Northwest Airlines last year, intends to create a new "regional handling subsidiary" that will assume oversight of all airport ticket counter, gate and baggage handling services in about 100 primarily small-and medium-sized airports currently managed by Comair and Mesaba.

The new subsidiary, called Regional Handling Services (RHS), will be responsible for ensuring a higher level of consistency at Delta Connection-staffed airports throughout the United States,
says Delta Connection senior VP Don Bornhorst.

Delta's new RHS team will be headquartered alongside Delta Connection in Minneapolis and will be led by Comair veteran Don Stephens.

In addition to leading about 4,100 airport customer service employees from these three airlines,
Stephens' team will also hold oversight of airport customer service functions for 170 airport locations handled by Delta Connection ground handling partners nationwide.

Comair, Mesaba and Compass will continue to be based at their respective headquarters, and their pilots, flight attendants and mechanics will still report to their respective airlines.

"When fully operational in the third quarter of 2009, RHS will be an industry leader
serving as one of the nation's largest regional ground handling operators," says Bornhorst.

"New efficiencies created by RHS' size, scope and combined buying and contracting power will
contribute to the $2 billion in annual revenue and cost synergies expected from our merger with Northwest. Synergies will be driven from competitive contract bidding, optimized ground handling equipment utilization, streamlined training, reduced overhead expense and increased insourcing opportunities."

As there is minimal overlap of the Comair and Mesaba ground handling networks, Delta anticipates "no involuntary frontline reductions for employees of Comair and Mesaba as a result
of the creation of RHS, with any staffing adjustments expected to be managed through attrition and voluntary programmes", says Bornhorst.

A Delta spokesman says the consolidation is not expected to have much impact on Compass employees' jobs. "If there is any impact to them, Compass will look to offer other opportunities or a severance package," he says.

Additionally, the creation of the subsidiary is expected to have no impact to Delta or Northwest mainline jobs.

Delta réduit ses effectifs d'encore 2 000 personnes après la suppression de 4 000 l'an dernier ( sur la base de volontariats ).
Vu sur Airwise ( Reuters ) . Il est fait mention de 70 000 employés, s'agit-il de DL plus NW ?

Autre point, où sont les éventuelles économies de synergie si on compare les flottes des deux compagnies DL et NW ? Sur les LC, DL disposerait de 10 B777-200ER et LR et de plus de 70 B767 alors que NW dispose de 29 ou 32 A330 et 16 B747 pax ( suivant les sources )

----------------------------

Delta Air Lines said on Thursday that it would grant voluntary buyouts to the more than 2,100 employees
requesting them, but the number of job cuts could grow as the company assesses future staffing needs.

The world's largest airline previously said it would cut capacity by 6 percent to 8 percent this year as
economic weakness erodes travel demand.

Delta, which eliminated 4,000 jobs last year though voluntary exit packages, has not offered a firm
estimate for the total number of jobs it would need to cut to achieve its downsizing.

The carrier currently has more than 70,000 workers.

"We will be thoughtful, yet decisive, in managing through this global recession," Delta said in an internal memo.

"In the end, we have to have the right size airplanes in the right markets to match the number of
customers who want to buy tickets, and we have to have the right number of people to serve those customers," Delta said.

Delta, which merged last year with Northwest Airlines, announced in December the new round of capacity cuts that would be in addition to an 11 percent reduction in the second half of 2008.

Major US airlines began a massive downsizing last year to offset fuel costs and to manage weaker
travel demand.

Ce que je comprends de l'article, c'est que Delta n'annule pas ses commandes mais reporte ses livraisons à 2013, en récupérant les slots de livraisons initialement réservés pour les options.

C'est ANA qui récupérerait les slots libérés par Delta.

Oui, c'est ce qui est dit dans l'article.

Le fait que Boeing ne remplisse pas ses obligations contractuelles pour ces premiers exemplaires (en ce qui concerne le calendrier de livraison) permet à Delta de les refuser.

Instead, the airline in a footnote noted the 18 aircraft have been excluded from its firm order obligations because "[t]he Boeing Company has informed us that Boeing will be unable to meet the contractual delivery schedule for these aircraft."

Les premiers exemplaires, trop lourds, auraient posé problèmes pour les routes les plus longues sur lesquelles Northwest voulait les déployer.

The first batch of 787-8s has also been troubled with weight issues that could limit deployment on the ultra-long-haul routes first intended by Northwest.

Pas grand chose de nouveau dans l'article au sujet de l'annulation ou pas des 787 : c'est la traduction en allemand de ce qui a déjà été publié hier.

En ce qui concerne l'A350-900/-1000, l'article dit qu'il serait examiné dans le cadre de la planification à long terme de la flotte.

Donc il semble bien qu'Airbus ne soit pas exclu d'office des prochains appels d'offre. Le "gentleman's agreement" qu'avait Delta avec Boeing n'est plus d'actualité.

Delta Air Lines/T109: perte réduite à 794 mio USD, mieux qu'attendu

New York (awp/afp) - Le transporteur aérien américain Delta Air
Lines, qui a finalisé en octobre le rachat de Northwest pour former le
leader mondial du secteur, a fait état mardi d'une perte nette de 794
millions de dollars au premier trimestre, fortement réduite sur un an
et moins lourde qu'attendue par le marché.L'an passé, Delta
avait accusé une perte nette de près de 6,4 milliards de dollars. Mais
le groupe a souligné, dans un communiqué, que cette comparaison d'une
année sur l'autre n'est pas pertinente car Northwest ne faisait pas
l'an passé partie du périmètre de Delta.Rapportée par action, la
perte nette représente 96 cents, mais Delta préfère mettre en avant
deux résultats avant provisions: un premier qui exclut environ 100
millions de dollars d'exceptionnels liés à la fusion des deux
compagnies, et revient à 84 cents par action; un second qui retranche
les pertes associées au programme d'achat anticipé de carburant, et
sans lequel Delta "a atteint l'équilibre".Le marché, qui bâtit
ses prévisions hors exceptionnels, à l'instar des provisions liées à la
fusion, tablait sur une perte par action de 1,01 dollar.Côté
chiffre d'affaires, le groupe a dégagé des revenus de 6,68 milliards de
dollars, inférieur aux 6,72 milliards envisagés par les analystes.Cela
représente une hausse de 40% du chiffre d'affaires sur les seuls
revenus de Delta Air Lines au premier trimestre 2008, mais une baisse
de 15% sur un an par rapport au chiffre d'affaires pro forma de Delta
et Northwest combinés, est-il précisé.

Réduction de capacité, comme presque la totalité du secteur. Et accélération du processus de fusion avec NW

AéroContact :

ATLANTA, 11 juin (Reuters) - Delta Air Lines a annoncé jeudi qu'elle prévoyait de nouvelles réductions de capacités en termes de sièges offerts au vu de la hausse du prix du carburant et d'une demande mitigée pour le transport aérien.

La compagnie aérienne américaine a précisé que ces mesures allaient l'obliger à réévaluer à nouveau "ses besoins en effectifs", tout en ajoutant qu'elle s'efforcerait d'éviter d'avoir
recours à des licenciements.

Vers 14h10 GMT, le titre Delta reculait de 0,61% à 6,51 dollars alors que l'indice Dow Jones gagnait 0,56%.

Le groupe basé à Atlanta a précisé dans un communiqué que ses capacités vers l'international seraient baissées de 15% au total, une baisse de 5% annoncée ce jeudi venant s'ajouter à une réduction de 10% annoncée en début d'année.

Delta Air Lines a également dit qu'elle allait accélérer le processus de fusion avec Northwest Airlines et continuer à maintenir un strict contrôle sur ses coûts et ses dépenses.

Bonjour Jullienaline... en suivant le rumeur et en regardant les résultats de Delta.... why not ?

Delta raises operating margin guidance
Tuesday September 15, 2009
Delta Air Lines now expects a 3%-4% operating margin in the third quarter, up from the 1%-3% forecast in July, and a breakeven margin for the full year, it said in a US Securities and Exchange filing released yesterday.

DL posted a $482 million operating loss in the first half of 2009. Consolidated unit costs excluding fuel are expected to rise 1%-2% year-over-year in the third quarter and 2%-3% for the full year. The third quarter forecast compares to a 0%-2% guidance issued in July. Mainline CASM excluding fuel should rise at the same rate, DL said. System capacity will drop 4%-5% in the third quarter and 7%-9% for the full year, while mainline capacity will be down 5%-6% and 7%-9% respectively. International cuts will be deeper than domestic.

System load factor for September and October should be around 82%, while yield over the year's final four months is forecast to fall 11%-14% from the year-ago period. Part of the decline is due to the higher fuel surcharges imposed in late 2008. The decline in unit revenue during the third quarter will be less than that suffered in the second quarter, DL said.

The company said it expects to realize more than $400 million in merger synergies through the first nine months. Reports surfaced late last week that it is considering an investment in Japan Airlines (ATW, Sept. 14).

Augmentation de la marge (operating margin) sur le T3, avec une marge globale sur l'année nulle.
Les rendements pour T3 cette année seront cependant en baisse par rapport à l'année dernière (-11 à 14%). Une partie de cette chute étant due à des surcharges kérosène moins élevées cette année (Ne trompe-je ? ou alors on voit que les surcharges ont aussi été un moyen d'améliorer les bilans ?).

A noter que sur 9 mois les synergies DL/NW sont évaluées à 400 millions.

Bonne journée

Bonsoir à tous,

Delta a réussi à lever 2,1 milliards de $.
De quoi finir d'absorber sereinement Northwest et ensuite, peut-être, se projeter sur JAL.

Delta closes $2.1 billion in financing

ATLANTA, Sept 28 (Reuters) - Delta Air Lines said on Monday that it has closed $2.1 billion of financing deals that have bolstered its liquidity by $600 million.

The company said the transactions also have addressed more than 40 percent of its 2010 debt maturities.

Delta said the financing deals were secured by liens against its Pacific route authorities, slots and gate leaseholds.

After refinancing $1.5 billion from bank credit and revolving credit facilities of its Northwest Airlines subsidiary, Delta said it will generate $600 million in incremental liquidity.

Atlanta-based Delta, which had announced debt offerings in recent weeks, became the world's largest airline when it bought Northwest last year. (Reporting by Karen Jacobs; editing by Carol Bishopric)

http://www.ajc.com/business/delta-to-buy-used-279231.html




Delta Air Lines is buying 11 used MD-90 jets to add to its fleet, although the added capacity will be offset by cuts among other models.
yld_mgr.place_ad_here("right_slot");




Atlanta-based Delta is buying nine of the twin-engine planes from China Eastern Airlines and has another two used MD-90s on order from Boeing Capital.

All of the planes will join Delta's fleet this year, adding to the 17 MD-90s the airline already has. It was the launch customer for the model in 1995.

Delta did not say how much it is paying for the aircraft.

The orders will make Delta the second-largest operator of MD-90s, behind Saudi Arabian Airlines. Delta's MD-90s have 150 seats, including 12 in first class and 138 in coach.

Despite the additional planes, Delta spokesman Trebor Banstetter also said the company is not adding flight capacity amid slow travel demand. That's because it is pulling so many other aircraft from its fleet, including DC-9s inherited from Northwest Airlines and regional jets. Delta has nearly 800 mainline aircraft in its fleet.

"It's not a growth decision," Banstetter said. The addition of more of the efficient MD-90s, is "much more a fleet management type of move," he said.

"It's certainly a lot more affordable for us than if we were to, say, buy a new 737," Banstetter said. He said the MD-90s will get new interiors.






Delta renforce sa flotte de MD90



9 en provenance de China Eastern Airlines

2 en provenance de Boeing Capital en provenance de HELLO



Cette flotte viendra compléter les 17 avions déjà en ligne (Delta étant client de lancement).

Les avions semblent devoir être configuré en 160 places et à mettre en ligne cette année.



Pour remplacement des 34 DC9 hérités de Northwest... notamment



Delta souligne que ce n'est pas une opération de croissance.

C'est une opération de rationalisation... un MD90 d'occasion étant significativement moins cher qu'un 737-800... (Delta avait annulé ses MD90 pour prendre des 737-800 à l'époque).



A noter que Saudia Arabian dispose de 28 MD90 qui commencent à être retirés de son service (A320 en remplacement).

Une piste pour Delta ?

Le cockpit n'est cependant pas le même = Glass Cockpit, alors que le MD90 standard semble calqué sur le MD88

Delta to Invest in Customer Experience, Fleet Efficiency


Enhancements include flat bed seats internationally, two-cabin service on more regional jets, expanded in-flight entertainment and new Sky Club lounges



Jan 25, 2010
ATLANTA,Jan. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) will invest $1 billion, or about $300 million per year, through mid-2013 to improve the customer experience in the air and on the ground. The capital investment will improve the consistency and level of service provided to Delta's BusinessElite, First Class and elite-level flyers, as well as increasing the efficiency of the airline's fleet. Planned enhancements include:

  • Installing full flat-bed seats in BusinessElite on 90 trans-oceanic aircraft, including 14 Boeing 767-400ERs, 52 Boeing 767-300ERs, 16 Boeing 747-400s and eight Boeing 777-200ERs. Upon completion, each of these fleets will have full flat bed seats on all aircraft.
  • Adding in-seat audio and video on demand throughout Economy Class on 16 Boeing 747-400 and 52 Boeing 767-300ER aircraft. With these additions, Delta will offer personal, in-seat entertainment for both BusinessElite and Economy class customers on all wide-body aircraft.
  • Adding First Class cabins to 66 CRJ-700 aircraft operated by Delta Connection carriers ASA, Comair and SkyWest, bringing to 219 the number of regional aircraft with First Class seating.
  • Completing the modification of 269 pre-merger Northwest aircraft to feature Delta's signature blue leather seats, updated lighting and enhanced cabin amenities such as increased overhead bin space on pre-merger Northwest 757-200s.
  • Installing winglets on more than 170 Boeing 767-300ER, 757-200 and 737-800 aircraft to extend aircraft range and improve fuel efficiency by as much as five percent.
  • Renovating and expanding Delta's Los Angeles Sky Club lounge, and introducing new Sky Club locations in Seattle, Philadelphia and Indianapolis.

"Delta's planned fleet and product investments mark the most significant investment we have made in our customers in more than a decade," said Delta CEO Richard Anderson. "Our premium travelers tell us that the comfort of a flat bed seat with direct aisle access, a first class experience on regional jets and in-flight entertainment are important factors in their choice of carrier."
(Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20090202/DELTALOGO )
"This investment will be made while staying well within the level of our historical capital expenditures," said Ed Bastian, Delta's president. "Rather than invest in new aircraft, Delta will be spending its capital to improve the quality and consistency of the on-board product and efficiency of the aircraft we already own."
Delta currently offers the most on-demand entertainment among U.S. carriers with more than 100 domestic aircraft equipped with in-seat audio and video on demand. Delta also continues to rapidly expand in-flight Wi-Fi service, which is available on more than 340 aircraft and more than 1,200 flights each day. Delta, the largest operator of Wi-Fi enabled aircraft in the world, plans to have more than 530 aircraft equipped with Wi-Fi by mid-2010.
Delta's upcoming fleet and product investments build on recently announced improvements including the re-launch of the Red Coat program at Delta's international hub at JFK and subsequently at all domestic hubs; the addition of BusinessElite service on Delta's transcontinental routes between New York-JFK and Los Angeles and San Francisco; the introduction of the full flat bed seats on all flights between the United States and London-Heathrow; and the announcement of plans to create a domestic hub at Delta's No. 1 business airport - New York-LaGuardia, subject to government approvals.


300 millions de dollar par an jusqu'à mi 2013 pour améliorer le confort de ses avions.

More Delta Fleet Swaps In Store

Feb 2, 2010



By Andrew Compart


Northwest has, officially, operated its last flight.

Over the weekend, Delta completed its integration of the Northwest reservations system, including the transition of all Northwest flights into the Delta schedule. The final regularly scheduled Northwest flight, NW2470, departed Los Angeles Airport for Las Vegas Saturday at 8:45 p.m. PST, Delta said. Delta and Northwest received approval for a single operating certificate at the end of 2009.

The completion of the transition also means NWA.com was permanently shut down over the weekend; if users type that address on their browsers, they’ll now end up at the delta.com site.

Customers who booked Northwest for travel prior to the switch are now booked on identical Delta flights. Passengers can use the original confirmation numbers provided by Northwest to manage itineraries at delta.com and check in online or at the airport on the day of travel.

Most significantly for Delta, it now can more freely place Delta and former Northwest aircraft anywhere in its system, where they provide the best fit for a market and produce the best profit.

Delta executives said they expect to start doing more of the aircraft route-swapping by late spring or early summer. But they noted that they expect some trial and error in placing aircraft in their best-suited markets, and also have some crew staffing and placement issues to work through before Delta can completely free-flow the fleet

Bonjour à tous

Quelques résultats pour Delta

http://www.atwonline.com/news/story.html?storyID=20070



Delta Air Lines reported a first-quarter net loss of $256 million, narrowed from a $794 million deficit in the year-ago period, and CEO Richard Anderson said continuing evidence of "the right trends in the revenue environment" have the company "optimistic about the rest of the year" and anticipating a "solidly profitable" second quarter.

"We continue to see solid advance bookings. . .across all geographic regions," President Ed Bastian told reporters and analysts yesterday. "Clearly the improved strength we're seeing comes from improved corporate travel. We're seeing corporate travel improve across all geographic regions, certainly in New York and across the Atlantic. . .We're not quite at 2008 levels [of business passengers]. We're close to 2007 levels and we expect to be up to 2008" later this year.

"It appears that the economy has pretty good legs under it," Anderson said. But he cautioned that "the issue we have ahead of us" is not generating revenue but keeping costs under control with fuel prices "volatile."

Regarding the merger with Northwest Airlines, Bastian said DL/NWA are "now operating on a single technology platform" and the "heavy lifting of integration is behind us." He claimed DL achieved $200 million in merger synergies in the first quarter and is "now at $1 billion in annual run rate synergies." It did incur $46 million in merger-related expenses in the quarter and expects another $70 million in merger costs for the remainder of the year.

The decision to ground NWA's fleet of 14 747-200 freighters last year (ATWOnline, April 22, 2009) produced $60 million in expense savings in the first quarter, Bastian said. Meanwhile, DL continues to be noncommittal on NWA's order for 18 787s placed in 2005 (ATWOnline, March 5, 2009). When asked if DL is still a 787 customer, Anderson responded, "Technically yes." But he added that he's happy with the airline's current long-haul fleet: "We're in good shape in terms of transoceanic airplanes."

First-quarter revenue rose 2% to $6.85 billion while expenses decreased 5% to $6.78 billion, producing operating income of $68 million, turned around from an operating loss of $483 million last year. Net income was heavily affected by $326 million in interest expenses.

Consolidated traffic dipped 1.4% to 42.37 billion RPMs while capacity dropped 4.4% to 53.3 billion ASMs, producing a load factor of 79.5%, up 2.4 points. Yield lifted 5.1% to 13.7 cents as PRASM jumped 8.4% to 10.89 cents and CASM dipped 0.5% to 12.46 cents. CASM ex-fuel increased 1% to 8.72 cents.



Un point important : questionnement de DL sur l'opportunité de prendre les 787 de NWA et à quelle échéance
En cours gros programme de remise à niveau de sa flotte actuelle (767-300, 767-400, A330-200 et A330-300, 777-200ER,, 777-200LR et 747).
Pas d'urgence pour eux donc

La commande initiale NWA, à priori motorisée Trent

Des 787-8 donc

DL souhaite peut-être attendre les -9 ? avec du GE ?

Les slots pour les -8 sot certainement facilement valorisables Wink (c.f. fil 787 )

A suivre

Bonjour,

Eh oui, il n'y a pas qu'AF qui a des pb avec des Boeing un peu anciens

Une petite tuile est arrivée à Delta également

More than 600 angry Delta Air Lines passengers were stranded at JFK Airport yesterday after three of its 767s developed mechanical problems in the space of six hours.
The three flights were scheduled to depart for European destinations. A flight to Barcelona turned back after taking off; the others, to Dublin and Istanbul, never left the ground.
"The delays are incredible, there are no supervisors to talk to and my luggage is held hostage," said Wendy Levy after spending 10 hours at the airport.
A Delta spokeswoman said one plane had engine problems, another a faulty indicator light, and the third delay involved "maintenance."
Asked about three of the same-model jets having problems at the same airport at virtually the same time, she conceded, "These issues do not happen very often."


Mieux qu'Easyjet Madrid ?

JFK est-il un HUB Delta ?

Bonne journée
