Delta Air Lines Inc. is on the hook for about $30 million in legal fees to its own bankruptcy counsel and to the counsel of the companies it owes money. Delta must also pay about $9.9 million in fees to accounting firms, investment banks and other consultants.

David Butler, a former U.S. Bankruptcy Court trustee and of counsel at Shapiro Fussell.
