(Atlanta, GA) -- Delta Air Lines is beating expectations in its latest quarterly earnings report.

Revenue came in at just under 12-point-three billion dollars while earnings per share was a dollar-48.

Despite that, high costs cut into profits as net income fell to 828-million dollars. That included a fuel bill of just under three-billion dollars.

That's a 42-percent increase from one year ago.
