Fitch Upgrades Delta's Credit Rating, But Pension Funding Still A Problem
Fri 2:30 pm ET (at
Fitch Ratings just upgraded Delta Air Lines' (DAL) credit rating by one notch to BB, two notches below investment grade, from BB-, with a positive outlook. "The upgrade reflects significant improvements to Delta's balance sheet, continued solid operating performance, better than expected free cash flow (FCF), and successful efforts to combat operating cost inflation,” Fitch says in announcing the rating action. “The ratings are also supported by underlying improvements in the airline industry including consolidation among the legacy carriers and capacity constraints, which have led to an improved risk profile and better profitability for the industry as a whole.” Fitch last upgraded Delta's ratings to BB- in February citing the possibility for further upgrades contingent upon further leverage reduction and sustained or improved operating margins. Since that time, Fitch says, Delta “has met or exceeded those expectations.” Fitch says the Positive Outlook reflects the rating agency’s view that Delta's credit profile will continue to improve as the company steps up efforts to reduce debt and address its underfunded pension plan.
