Delta Releases June 2022 Quarter Financials

DALLAS – Delta Air Lines (DL) today released its financial results for the June 2022 quarter.

Highlights include progress in restoring operational reliability, generating a double-digit June operating margin, expecting a double-digit operating margin in the September quarter – which would mean full-year profitability – and being on track to reach its 2024 goal to achieve more than US$7 adjusted earnings per share and US$4bn of free cash flow.

“I would like to thank our entire team for their outstanding work during a challenging operating environment for the industry as we work to restore our best-in-class reliability. Their performance coupled with strong demand drove nearly $2 billion of free cash flow as well as profitability in the first half of the year, and we are accruing profit sharing, marking a great milestone for our people,” said Delta CEO Ed Bastian.“

For the September quarter, we expect an adjusted operating margin of 11 to 13 percent, supporting our outlook for meaningful full-year profitability.”
