07:43 EDTDAL, SKYW, UAL, LCC, RJET, AAMRQRegional airlines may see more consolidation, WSJ reports
U.S. regional airlines could see more consolidation following the deals among network carriers, according to Dan Garton, head of AMR Corp.'s (AAMRQ) American Eagle commuter unit, reports the Wall Street Journal. American Eagle is the biggest regional carrier wholly owned by a U.S. network airline, and in 2012 it accounted for 95% of the domestic passengers fed onto American's flights. A long-planned spinoff of American Eagle also remains a possibility even after the planned merger of American Airlines parent AMR and US Airways Group (LCC) though Garton said the initial priorities are developing a new aircraft-fleet plan and exploring how the partners' regional operations can be "blended."

07:04 EDTDALDelta Air Lines to return additional $6B to shareholders through 2017
Delta's board announced a new $5B share repurchase program, to be completed no later than December 31, 2017. In addition, the company's quarterly dividend will increase by 50% to 13.5c per share beginning in the September 2015 quarter. These two programs are expected to return more than $6B to shareholders through 2017. The company also announced that it is on track to complete the remaining $725M of its prior $2 billion share repurchase authorization by June 30. When this authorization is completed, Delta will have returned a total of $3B in dividends and share repurchases since announcing its initial program two years ago. Going forward, the company intends to return at least 50% of free cash flow to shareholders through 2017. The new $5B repurchase authorization and 50% increase to the quarterly dividend approved by Delta's board are expected to return more than $6B to shareholders through 2017. Delta ended the March 2015 quarter with $7.4B of adjusted net debt, a reduction of $2B since the end of 2013 and roughly $10B since the company began its debt reduction efforts in 2009. The company has set a target to achieve and maintain $4B of adjusted net debt by year end 2017. This debt level is expected to result in annual net interest expense of ~$200M, a $1.1B reduction compared to 2009. Since 2009, Delta has increased its pension plan assets by $1.7 billion, net of $5.2 billion in distributions, through a combination of contributions and asset returns. The company plans to maintain its current $1 billion annual funding level through 2020, with a goal of achieving 80% funded status by that date. Delta made a one-time additional $200M contribution in 2015, for a total contribution of $1.2B for the year, to keep the company on track to achieve its 2020 target.
