Management at Delta Air Line hopes that its discussions with US regulators regarding anti-trust with the Virgin Blue group of Australia will produce positive results after the tie-up was initially rejected earlier this year.

Speaking at Delta's investor day Delta executives explained that the carrier's response to the US Department of Transportation (DOT) has been well received, and it is a matter of just ironing out a few final details "to their satisfaction".

Delta management states it hopes to have "a positive announcement in the next 60 days or so", regarding its anti-trust application with the Virgin Blue group.
