Delta overcomes in 3Q, streak goes on for airlines this week

NEW YORK — Delta extended the winning streak for airlines this week, overcoming hurricanes, earthquakes, as well as rising fuel and labor costs to put up better-than-expected profit and revenue numbers for the third quarter.

A strong outlook from the Atlanta carrier sent shares up 2 percent before the opening bell Wednesday. United Continental Holdings, American Airlines, Southwest and JetBlue rose as well, a day after American and United raised their expectations for third-quarter revenue.
