Delta Air Lines still sees Q1 profit despite rampant flight cancellations


Delta Air Lines (DAL -0.7%) exec Ed Bastian says the company took a revenue hit of $55M in the first two months of the year due to weather cancellations.

Winter storms caused the cancellation of 17K flights during the period.

The carrier still expects to post a profit in Q1 and see its revenue-per-passenger metric improve.
