Delta: “The company is estimating that the hurricane negatively impacted October revenues by USD45 million and reduced October profit by approximately USD20 million.  Delta is still assessing the impact to November, but expects it to be less than October. Delta's October unit revenue improvement was approximately one point higher than it would have been without the hurricane impact,” Source: Company statement, 02-Nov-2012.
