ATLANTA (AP) -- Delta Air Lines Inc. plans to cut twice as many jobs as the original goal it stated in March.

That's when it offered voluntary severance payouts to more than half its work force, with a goal to cut 2,000 workers.

An airline spokeswoman says that roughly 4,000 people took the package, and Delta will accept all the volunteers.

The employees are from the mainline airline and Delta's information technology subsidiary. Most will leave the company in the fall.
