 signed letters of intent for Delta's Technical Operations Division to provide

     Royal Air Maroc will begin using Delta's services under a five-year
 agreement in June 2001.  The deal includes one-stop-shop nose-to-tail service
 for the Boeing 767-300ER fleet.  Starting in June, Delta will begin training
 Royal Air Maroc maintenance technicians in preparation for delivery of the
 Boeing 767-300ERs.  Services for Royal Air Maroc's Boeing 757-200s include
 engine and component support while Delta will provide component support for
 the Boeing 737-800s.
