Delta Pacific flying has been on a steady decline since 2013

With the cancellation of US-China flying, Pacific block-hours are projected to fall
below the 182,750 Pacific Block Hour Floor by thousands of block hours in 2020

The Chart is based on OAG data with Delta resuming flying in May 2020

United has the greatest exposure with an estimated 7% of its 2019 revenue coming from US-China flying, compared to estimates of 3% at Delta and 1% at American

Had Delta maintained 2016 flying levels and kept a buffer above the minimum, Delta’s Pacific block hours would have remained above the Pacific Block Hour Floor
