Delta expects cash balance to grow

ATLANTA - December 15, 2009

The airline said in a presentation filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission Tuesday ahead of an investor conference that it projects it will end 2010 with $5.4 billion in unrestricted liquidity, up from the $5.1 billion it expects to end this year with.

Delta says capacity will be flat in 2010 compared to this year.

Delta, based in Atlanta, is targeting $600 million in new cost savings and productivity enhancements next year.

Ancillary revenue, which includes bag fees and other add-on charges, has been a key source of revenue for airlines.
