Oct. 13 (UPI) — Delta Air Lines announced Tuesday a net loss of $5.38 billion in the third quarter, or a $6.9 billion pre-tax loss, and said improvements in customer traffic could signal a slow turnaround for the carrier.

The company’s loss compared with a $1.5 billion profit during the same period a year ago. Revenue for the quarter was $3.06 billion, down 75.6% from the same period a year ago, the company reported.

Delta reported that $4 billion of its losses were directly due to COVID-19 and the company’s response, including fleet-related restructuring charges and charges for voluntary separation and early retirement programs for Delta employees.

“While our September quarter results demonstrate the magnitude of the pandemic on our business, we have been encouraged as more customers travel and we are seeing a path of progressive improvement in our revenues, financial results and daily cash burn,” Delta Chief Executive

SINGAPORE – Oil prices dropped for a second straight session on Monday as U.S. producers began restoring output after Hurricane Delta weakened, while a strike that had affected production in Norway came to an end.

Brent crude LCOc1 for December fell 55 cents, or 1.3%, to $42.30 a barrel by 0023 GMT and U.S. West Texas Intermediate CLc1 for November was at $40.08 a barrel, down 52 cents, or 1.3%.

Front-month prices for both contracts gained more than 9% last week, the biggest weekly rise for Brent since June, but fell on Friday after Norwegian oil firms struck a wage bargain with labour union officials, resolving a strike that threatened to cut the country’s oil and gas output by close to 25%.

Thesis

I believe Delta Apparel, Inc. (DLA) will increase dramatically, with upside potential of $45+, due to imminent catalysts and the stock’s tremendous undervaluation. There are also many catalysts that I expect to drive an upward revaluation, most imminently DLA’s next earnings report (expected in November) which I project to be tremendously above consensus (one analyst) expectations. There has been the perfect storm of positive events that have occurred for DLA, yet the stock has barely reacted, and is near multi-year lows.

DLA is a high-growth technology and apparel company being undervalued by the market, because it is a small-cap in the apparel retail sector.

Like just about every airline, Delta is working to convince passengers that it’s safe to fly during the coronavirus pandemic. It started off with the plane itself, blocking middle seats and spraying disinfectant on a regular basis.

Now, Delta is tackling the next part of the travel experience: the airport.

The Atlanta-based airline announced two new safety and sanitization initiatives at airports this week as airlines prepare for a stall in demand recovery between the summer and holiday travel seasons.

Delta said it would replace the air filtering systems on the jet bridges that passengers use to walk from the gate onto their planes, and announced new anti-microbial bins at security checkpoints at five of its hubs. The moves come as travel demand remains severely depressed over the same period in 2019. Airlines are desperate for demand to grow as they continue to bleed cash.

Although airplanes recirculate some cabin
