Delta Air Lines, Inc. (NYSE:DAL) Q3 2019 Earnings Conference Call - Final Transcript
Oct 10, 2019 • 10:00 am ET
about possible recession in the next couple of years. Any shift at all, any weakness compared with a few months ago?
Edward H. Bastian
John, this is Ed. No, not at all. We had a -- as we've mentioned a number of times on this call, we had record summer in terms of both volumes and revenues, so all time high revenues for us. And the domestic system is what produced those records. Our domestic revenues were up 8% in the third quarter and we continue to see advanced bookings, the domestic consumer being quite strong. We expect the holiday period to be a strong period. Looking ahead, we don't have a great view into 2020 since it's pretty early for us on our booking curve, but the -- our business is heavily levered to the US consumer and the US consumer is doing quite well and is preferring Delta.
With that, we'll conclude today's call. We -- as has been mentioned earlier, we look forward to seeing everybody on December 11 and 12 here in Atlanta. And we're grateful for your time today. Thank you.
And once again, ladies and gentlemen, this does conclude your conference for today. We do thank you for your participation and you may now disconnect.
