Delta becomes latest airline to raise bag fees. Will American follow suit?

DAL

American City Business Journals•September 20, 2018. Delta Air Lines became the latest major U.S. carrier to raise its bag fees, but two locally based airlines have yet to participate in the growing trend. After speaking at the North Texas Commission Annual Luncheon earlier this week, Doug Parker, CEO of Fort Worth-based American Airlines Group Inc. (NASDAQ: AAL), declined to comment on when or if his airline would raise bag fees to match competitor rates. The move by Delta (NYSE: DAL) came after JetBlue Airways Corp. (NASDAQ: JBLU) and United Continental Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: UAL) had previously raised their own bag fees.

Delta joins United, JetBlue in raising checked-bag fees

DAL

ATLANTA (AP) — Delta Air Lines is joining two rivals in raising fees to check a bag on a flight within the United States. Delta on Wednesday posted new fees of $30 for checking a first bag and $40 for a second bag — increasing the previous fees by $5 each. By midday, American Airlines had not increased bag fees. Southwest Airlines lets passengers check up to two bags free. Last year, U.S. carriers raised $7.4 billion from fees on checked bags and ticket changes, led by American, Delta and United.

My Delta flight got canceled before a busy holiday weekend and I discovered the greatest argument for basic economy

DAL

My Delta flight got canceled before a busy holiday weekend, and I discovered the greatest argument for basic economy (AAL, DAL, UAL). The claustrophobic flyer in me doesn't like middle seats. Since traveling on a basic-economy ticket precludes you from preselecting seats, it's usually a no-go for me. However, I decided to take the plunge and do basic economy on Delta Air Lines for a recent trip to Florida. "If we don't match the lowest fare in a marketplace, we found that we'll lose around 20% of our customers over time," American Airlines CEO Doug Parker said at the Airlines for America summit on Wednesday. "It's not for everybody," United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz told Business Insider of basic economy in an interview last year, adding, "It's the economics of matching and competing in markets where the low-cost carriers are offering this type of basic-economy service." But many consumers didn't quite see it that way. For a lot of us travelers, basic economy felt like an insult — an example of greedy airlines squeezing every remaining drop of blood in their price-conscious customer base in the form of cramped middle seats and carry-on-bag restrictions.

DAL

Why Delta (DAL) is Poised to Beat Earnings Estimates Again. Looking for a stock that has been consistently beating earnings estimates and might be well positioned to keep the streak alive in its next quarterly report? The average surprise for the last two quarters was 2.14%.

Delta Air Lines targets motor fuels buyers in refinery deal: sources

TRI DAL

Delta Air Lines targets motor fuels buyers in refinery deal: sources. (Reuters) - Delta Air Lines' (DAL.N) decision to offer a stake in its Monroe Energy oil-refining subsidiary is aimed at attracting a partner interested in snapping up Monroe's gasoline and diesel output, two sources familiar with the matter said on Thursday. The airline no longer wants to be involved in marketing the motor fuels, which are a major part of the refinery's output, but does want retain Monroe's jet fuel production for its own uses, sources familiar with recent discussions between managers and employees said. Delta said late on Wednesday it had hired investment banks Barclays and Jefferies to pursue the sale of a undisclosed stake in Monroe Energy LLC, the subsidiary that runs the 185,000 barrel-per-day refinery in Trainer, Pennsylvania.
