Delta Airlines saw shares drop in early deals

Delta Air Lines Inc (NYSE:DAL) saw shares drop over 2% in New York as traders homed in on the third quarter outlook, ignoring that traffic per revenue miles for August increased 6.9%.

In addition, international traffic climbed 3.2%, while domestic traffic increased 9.5%, while the load factor (the ratio between revenue and available seats) improved by 3.5 points to 84.4%.

But for the September quarter, Delta said it now expected passenger unit revenue growth of between 2% and 3%, compared with guidance of 2.5% to 4.5% growth provided in July, as a recovery in domestic yields has been slower than anticipated.

The airline now expects third-quarter operating margin of 16.5% to 17.5%.

That compares with previous guidance of 18% to 20%, due to in part higher fuel prices.

Delta shares flew 2% lower to $46.57.
