ITEM 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

On March 18, 2008, Delta said that it would record a net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2008.  The company has determined that, in accordance with GAAP, it will not record a tax benefit in the March 2008 quarter.

In accordance with general instruction B.2 of Form 8−K, the information in this report that is being furnished pursuant to Item 7.01 of Form 8−K shall not be deemed to be “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act, as amended, or otherwise subject to liabilities of that section, nor shall they be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as expressly set forth in such filing. This report will not be deemed an admission as to the materiality of any information in the report that is required to be disclosed solely by Regulation FD.

Statements in this Form 8-K hereto that are not historical facts, including statements regarding Delta’s estimates, expectations, beliefs, intentions, projections or strategies for the future, may be “forward-looking statements” as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the estimates, expectations, beliefs, intentions, projections and strategies reflected in or suggested by the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the cost of aircraft fuel; the impact that Delta’s indebtedness will have on its financial and operating activities and Delta’s ability to incur additional debt; the restrictions that financial covenants in Delta’s financing agreements will have on Delta’s financial and business operations; labor issues; interruptions or disruptions in service at one of Delta’s hub airports; Delta’s increasing dependence on technology in its operations; Delta’s ability to retain management and key employees; the ability of Delta’s credit card processors to take significant holdbacks in certain circumstances; the effects of terrorist attacks; and competitive conditions in the airline industry. Additional information concerning risks and uncertainties that could cause differences between actual results and forward-looking statements is contained in Delta’s Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2007. Caution should be taken not to place undue reliance on Delta’s forward-looking statements, which represent Delta’s views only as of April 10, 2008, and which Delta has no current intention to update.


          Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
