Delta yesterday said revenue passenger miles increased 1.4% to 6.5 billion in January while capacity declined 2.6% to 10.5 billion available seat miles. The load factor rose to 61.87% from 59.41% in the same month a year ago. Robert Coggin, executive VP-marketing, said that "in spite of the weather impact, domestic revenue passenger miles grew a strong 7.3% from a year ago, pushing our domestic and system load factors to record January levels."
