Delta Air Lines expects revenue to return to 2019 levels this quarter thanks to a surge in travel demand and fares that have helped it weather a jump in fuel costs, the carrier said in a filing Wednesday.

The Atlanta-based airline updated its estimates less than a week after announcing it would trim its schedule to try to stem flight disruptions that impacted tens of thousands of passengers last month. Hundreds of Delta flights were canceled or delayed over the key Memorial Day weekend.
