|Delta’s strategy of operating an older aircraft fleet--at over 16 years on average, the fleet is the oldest among U.S. network carriers--with lower capital costs but higher maintenance and fuel demands aligns well with the current environment of low oil prices. Moreover, Delta’s maintenance operations, which typically account for about 10% of an airline’s costs, are among the lowest in the industry on a per-seat block hour basis, enabling Delta to maintain old aircraft more cost-effectively. |
