Delta reached a major milestone this quarter, with adjusted revenue 3 percent higher and unit revenues up 23 percent compared to 2019, marking the highest revenue and unit revenue quarter in Delta’s history.

September Quarter 2022 GAAP Financial Results

• Operating revenue of $14.0 billion
• Operating income of $1.5 billion with an operating margin of 10.4 percent
• Earnings per share of $1.08
• Operating cash flow of $869 million
• Payments on debt and finance lease obligations of $1.8 billion
• Total debt and finance lease obligations of $23.2 billion at quarter end

We delivered $1.5 billion of operating profit with a 12 percent operating margin in the September quarter despite costs related to our rebuild efforts as well as inflationary impacts felt across the industry,” said Dan Janki, Delta’s chief financial officer.

With capacity expected to be 91 to 92 percent restored to 2019 in the December quarter, non-fuel unit costs are expected to be 12 to 13 percent higher, improving 10 points sequentially. Improving asset utilization and efficiency remain key priorities as we move into the final stages of rebuilding the airline and work to drive a competitive cost structure.

The company repaid $1.8 billion of debt during the quarter, bringing year-to-date debt repayment to more than $4 billion.
