Spokeswoman Betsy Talton said Delta still plans to add the 15
new international routes it announced Nov. 12, but the company will
continue to monitor performance.
It's unclear if future capacity reductions mean a net reduction in international capacity next year or simply smaller growth.
When the new overseas routes were announced, a Delta executive told reporters that overall international capacity in 2009 would be
slightly larger than in 2008, while overall domestic capacity would
be slightly smaller.
The Atlanta-based airline says it will give more details about
its outlook in early December.
