Delta Air Lines, Inc. (DAL) announced Wednesday that revenue for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020 is expected to be reduced by 90 percent compared to the year-ago quarter as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

System-wide capacity is also projected to be down 85 percent, compared to the June 2019 quarter.
