American and Delta reported positive third-quarter unit revenue in Latin America, the only positive regional results reported by the big three U.S. carriers.
Alaska Air CEO Brad Tilden said the DOJ review of the Virgin America merger is taking longer than expected, but the deal will get done.
American shows a 1.8% gain in Latin America unit revenue and a 2.2% decline in total unit revenue.
United, after years of always being No. 3 among the top three airlines, seems ready under President Scott Kirby to fight back against American and Delta.
