(Reuters) – Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) will be forced to remove its codes on partner Aeromexico flights following an expected downgrade of Mexico’s aviation safety rating by the U.S. government, an executive said at a conference on Monday.

The planned downgrade, which Reuters reported on Friday, would also restrict Aeromexico’s ability to grow into the United States but would have little overall impact on Delta customers, Delta President Glen Hauenstein said at a Wolfe Research conference.
