Bankrupt airline appoints E&Y

Delta airlines, the bankrupt Atlanta-based airline, has appointed Ernst
& Young as its independent registered public accounting firm after an annual
review, according to regulatory filings.

The appointment is subject to the approval of the US Bankruptcy Court.

E&Y will replace Deloitte as the airline’s auditor following a
competitive bidding process.

Deloitte reported on Delta’s consolidated financial statements for the 2004
and 2005 financial years.

Delta filed for bankruptcy protection in September last year, just one of a
number of major US airlines to collapse since 9/11.
