Airlines are adapting their premium lounges to the new realities of pandemic flying as their top travelers remain largely grounded. We visited the airport lounges of American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and United Airlines to see how the lounge experience has changed. Access to airport lounges is a top perk for frequent flyers and those who pay top dollar to sit in the premium cabins of an airliner. American Airlines' Flagship Lounges and United's Polaris lounge, for example, offered complimentary sit-down dining with multi-course meals to eligible patrons. Here's what it's like to visit an airport lounge during the pandemic.

Spirit Airlines inaugurated service between Newark and Boston on November 18, becoming the fifth carrier on the busy route. We flew on the first flight from Newark to Boston to see if Spirit's dirt-cheap fares held up to the competition on the 200-mile route. Spirit Airlines just launched its newest route between Newark and Boston on November 18, one of the shortest in its network. It's not technically a shuttle flight since it doesn't depart from LaGuardia but, for the purposes of this story, that's how I'll refer to it. Here's what it's like flying on a Spirit Airlines shuttle flight from Newark to Boston.

It is not considering lifting separate entry bans on most non-U.S. citizens who have recently been in China or Iran, the officials said. Many administration officials argue the restrictions no longer make sense given that most countries around the world are not subject to the entry ban. They contend lifting the restrictions would be a boost to struggling U.S. airlines, which have seen international travel fall by 70%, according to airline industry data. Trump may still opt not to lift the restrictions, given the high number of coronavirus infections in Europe. The European countries that are subject to the U.S. entry restrictions include the 26 members of the Schengen area that allow travel across open borders.

Alaska Airlines is acquiring 13 additional Boeing 737 Max 9 aircraft in a deal that will also see the sale of 10 Airbus A320 jets. The FAA ungrounded the Boeing 737 Max on November 18 following a 20-month evaluation that still has flyers saying they won't fly on it. Alaska will grow its 737 Max 9 fleet to 45 aircraft with the new order from Air Lease Corporation. Alaska Airlines announced a leasing deal for more Boeing 737 Max aircraft on Monday just days following the end of a 20-month grounding by the Federal Aviation Administration after two fatal crashes. If there's one thing that Boeing, the 737 Max, and Alaska Airlines all have in common, it's a home in Washington.

White House considers lifting European travel restrictions, sources say

The White House is considering rescinding entry bans for most non-U.S. citizens who recently were in Brazil, Britain, Ireland and 26 other European countries, five U.S. and airline officials told Reuters. They contend lifting the restrictions would be a boost to struggling U.S. airlines, which have seen international travel fall by 70%, according to airline industry data. One potential hurdle is the fact that European countries are not likely to immediately allow most Americans to resume visits, officials said. The European countries that are subject to the U.S. entry restrictions include the 26 members of the Schengen area that allow travel across open borders. Some airlines and officials think testing could be the key to widely resuming international travel.

Airline Stocks Are No Holiday Deal

For those able and willing to fly during the winter holiday season, finding cheap airline tickets is easy. Finding cheap airline stocks is another matter. Positive updates from Covid-19 vaccine developers have pushed money back into industries hit by the pandemic. Speculators can still benefit: If vaccine news continues to exceed expectations, airline stocks will probably rally again. True, most airline stocks are still trading at a significant discount when compared with 2019 earnings.

Delta CEO Ed Bastian is awarding employees with two free travel passes as a thank you for their work this year. Called "Delta Difference" passes, employees can use them to fly anywhere Delta flies with a confirmed seat. Delta employees already have free flight benefits but these passes will be useful during a busy travel period or when using their benefits is less likely to secure a seat. Luckily, the "Delta Difference" passes also don't expire, allowing employees the opportunity to use them once the world reopens. Airline employees already fly for free but positive space passes are more like a paid ticketA perk of the job, Delta employees receive free flight benefits on the airline and can access discounted fares on others.

Flyers returning to the skies for the upcoming holiday season will be met with an entirely new travel experience. The upcoming holiday travel season will likely see an influx of travelers taking to the skies, many for the first time since the pandemic impacted travel in March. The peak travel season for Thanksgiving and Christmas travel should be no different as historically among the busiest travel times of the year. Air travel rating firm Skytrax has also recently started rating airports based on their COVID-19 preparedness that passengers can use as a resource. But not all airlines are being as generous and ultra-low-cost carriers Sun Country Airlines, Frontier Airlines, Spirit Airlines, and Allegiant Air are each taking a different approach.

Markets Throw a Welcome Party of Sorts for Biden

And in the weeks since the election stocks have climbed steadily, primarily because of encouraging vaccine news. Some investors believe that with Mr. Biden in the White House, and Republicans likely to retain control of the Senate, they could count on political gridlock to block tax increases that could roil the markets. United Airlines, American Airlines and Delta Air Lines have all climbed by more than 30 percent. Markets also appeared to welcome the return of politics as usual under a future Biden administration, and were reassured by the news that Ms. Yellen will be Mr. Biden’s nominee to head the Treasury Department. “There had been some fear that Mr. Biden would pick a Treasury secretary with a strong anti-Wall Street bias,” wrote analysts with High Frequency Economics in a client note on Tuesday.

WASHINGTON/CHICAGO (Reuters) - More than 3 million airline passengers passed through U.S. airports over the weekend, disregarding calls to avoid Thanksgiving trips and making it the busiest air-travel weekend since coronavirus lockdowns hit in mid-March. For an interactive graphic tracking the global spread of COVID-19, open here in an external browser. But there have been pockets of improvement, and some carriers were hoping for upticks in travel around the Thanksgiving and winter holidays. TSA screened 1.047 million passengers on Sunday -- the highest number of any day since mid-March, along with 984,369 on Saturday and 1.019 million on Friday. U.S. airlines say travel demand remains down 62% from a year ago, while international travel demand remains down more than 70%.

But if the market trends that immediately followed positive vaccine news are any indication, some sectors will benefit a lot more than others. Massachusetts-based biotech company Moderna said last week that its coronavirus vaccine was nearly 95% effective at preventing Covid-19. Those vaccine announcements come as the coronavirus spreads rapidly — again — in the United States and Europe. ... investors are expecting the retail property market in Europe and U.S. to benefit most from the vaccine, followed by office and hospitality sectors. Lee Fong, Asia Pacific research director at commercial real estate services firm Jones Lang LaSalle, said a potential vaccine offers hope against "the uncertainty that has been troubling economies and real estate markets."

You can sign up right hereLondon (CNN Business) Investors have made up their minds: For the time being, vaccine euphoria is outweighing bad economic news triggered by coronavirus restrictions. What's happening: Drugmaker AstraZeneca announced Monday that its experimental Covid-19 vaccine is highly effective in large scale trials — the latest of several vaccine trials to post promising results this month. "The data add to the likelihood that the euro area will see GDP contract again in the fourth quarter." Meanwhile, the medium-term outlook has only gotten more positive, bolstered by "calmer US foreign and trade policy [and] vaccine progress." United Airlines UAL said Thursday that it's seen some increase in flight cancellations and a drop-off in bookings as Covid-19 cases rise.

US health officials have pleaded with the American public not to travel for the Thanksgiving holiday this week as new Covid-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths soar. Thanksgiving week is traditionally one of the busiest of the year for air travel. The airline industry is neither encouraging nor discouraging holiday travel, the head of the industry's trade group said Thursday.

Boeing 737 MAX without a buyer, known as a "white tail", sits outside a hangar in Moses Lake, Washington, U.S., November 19, 2020. It’s really energized everyone.”The work at Moses Lake is a cornerstone of a global logistical and financial strategy under way at Boeing to clear a backlog of more than 800 mothballed 737 MAX jets. Reuters counted 12 white tails at Moses Lake on Thursday, though sources say Boeing is worried about 100 such aircraft in inventory, or more. Boeing is in discussions with several airlines, including Southwest, Delta and Alaska, hoping to stimulate demand for the jet. The 737 MAX 8 has a list price of $122 million but the market long ago abandoned published prices as competition heated up.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Delta Air Lines DAL.N and Canada's WestJet said late on Friday they had scrapped a proposed U.S.-Canada joint venture after the U.S. government demanded changes the airlines insisted were "unreasonable and unacceptable". The airlines said in a filing that the U.S. demands were “arbitrary and capricious” especially the slot divestitures. The Delta-WestJet joint venture would have had a combined 27% share of scheduled air carrier transborder capacity, while the dominant carrier, Air Canada AC.TO, has 45%. Canada, with 38 million people, is the second-largest U.S. international passenger air market after Mexico, with Toronto flights accounting for over 50% of transborder air travel demand. U.S. air carriers had urged slot divestitures at LaGuardia, noting American Airlines AAL.O, Delta and United Air Lines UAL.O control 83% of all slots, with Delta controlling 45% of flights.
