Delta Will Cut Capacity in 2009
Delta has laid out plans to cut capacity in 2009 by 8% to 10% on domestic routes and by 3% to 5% on international routes. The cuts will be made on routes that have the least fuel-efficient flights. The reason is, of course current economic global conditions and a decline in demand. American has already said it would be cutting domestic demand by about 8.5% in 2009 but would only cut international by about 1%.
