With Delta Air Lines (DAL +13.9%) leading, Bloomberg's U.S. Airlines Index gained 9.6% to reach a post-January high. Lower crude prices may be helping, and a slump in flying may be easing as carriers are posting their strongest traffic since June 2008. Other airlines: AMR +9.2%, CAL +9.5%, UAUA +8.1%, LCC +10.5%, LUV +6.7%.
