Oct 13 Delta Air Lines Inc on Thursday
reported a third-quarter profit above analysts' expectations and
said moves to curb its growth in flight capacity will help
offset the future decline of a closely watched revenue measure.
The Atlanta-based airline said its profit fell about 4
percent to $1.3 billion in the third quarter. On an adjusted
basis, Delta earned $1.70 per share, compared with analysts'
average estimate of $1.65 per share, according to Thomson
