People wait for their baggage in the terminal at Boston Logan International Airport in Boston on Nov. 25, 2020. U.S. air travel rose to the highest levels since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, according to data released Monday, an increase that came despite U.S. health officials' warnings against travel. Airlines have been banking on a spike in air travel over the holiday, but demand still remains a fraction of last year's levels and executives earlier this month said ticket sales had slowed amid a spike in coronavirus cases and new warnings from health officials. "Booking trends remain volatile and the company continues to believe demand and revenue recovery will be non-linear through the fourth quarter and beyond," the New York-based carrier said in a securities filing. Its daily cash burn will likely average between $6 million and $8 million in the quarter, up from its earlier estimate of between $4 million and $6 million a day.

Gerald Herbert | APAn unforgiving hurricane season shattered records this year, producing the most named storms ever seen in the Atlantic and battering parts of Central America and the U.S. Gulf Coast. The Atlantic season officially runs from June 1 to Nov. 30. But one thing is clear: No previous hurricane season in recorded history has had so many storms. The strongest hurricane was Hurricane Iota, which struck Central America and Colombia as the latest known Atlantic hurricane to become a Category 5. "Many millions of people along both the Gulf Coast and the Atlantic Coast were impacted by these storms," Bell said.

Over 1.1 million travelers flew on Sunday, breaking a record for pandemic travel for daily passengers not seen since March. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned against Thanksgiving travel but over a third of Americans told Insider that the guidance didn't change their plans. The Transportation Security Administration is reporting that a record-breaking 1,176,091 passengers traveled by air on Sunday, likely returning home after the Thanksgiving holiday. From November 19 to November 29, nine days saw over 900,000 passengers, four of which saw over one million passengers for a total of 10,381,904 passengers. The next busy holiday travel rush will surround the Christmas and New Year's holidays.

Financial data from the three major US airlines lays bare how badly affected the inability to sell international business class seats has hurt the industry. The global collapse of air travel demand in 2020 has devastated the world's airlines. The other US mainline legacy airlines — American Airlines and United Airlines — do not disclose how much of their passenger revenue comes from premium ticket sales. So you've got to look at the dearth of business class ticket sales as the culprit for the dizzying drop. Southwest CEO Gary Kelly said in late-October that he does not expect business travel to return to pre-pandemic levels for about a decade.

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.

Passengers check bags for a Delta Air Lines, Inc. flight during the Covid-19 pandemic at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in Los Angeles, California, November 18, 2020. Delta Air Lines canceled hundreds of flights over the Thanksgiving break as it grappled with staffing shortages during the busiest travel week since the coronavirus pandemic began. On Thursday, Delta canceled about 300 flights, roughly 20% of its schedule and around 160 flights, or around 9% of Friday's schedule. "A number of factors have pressured our ability to timely staff several dozen scheduled flights," Delta said in a statement. And earlier this week pilots approved a deal to accept partial pay not to fly that would avoid more than 1,700 furloughs until 2022.

FILE PHOTO: A health worker takes a swab sample from a man to test for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), at the Fiumicino Airport in Rome, Italy, September 23, 2020. REUTERS/Remo CasilliROME (Reuters) - Rome’s Fiumicino airport will run COVID-tested flights to and from the United States operated by Delta Air Lines and Alitalia, it said on Thursday, adding it will be the first airport in Europe to offer the service on transatlantic flights. Aeroporti di Roma (ADR), the unit of Italian infrastructure group Atlantia that runs Fiumicino airport, said the new protocol will be valid for those flying from New York JFK, Newark and Atlanta. In September, in an effort to resume domestic travel after the first wave of the epidemic, Italian carrier Alitalia experimented with COVID testing on some flights between Rome Fiumicino and Milan city airport Linate, Italy’s biggest hubs. The Italian government is expected to give the go-ahead to COVID-tested U.S. flights in the coming days, ADR said, adding that the government’s official backing will also allow them to offer such flights between Rome and Munich, and Rome and Frankfurt in Germany.

Delta is trialing a new testing program that will allow passengers to travel to Europe without quarantine. Passengers will have to take two COVID-19 tests before boarding the plane in the US, and another one upon arrival in Italy. To return to Atlanta, passengers will also need to take a rapid test at the airport in Rome. Advisors from the Mayo Clinic have reviewed Delta's testing program. The CommonPass shows the results of passengers' COVID-19 tests, and is designed as an international standard.

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.

Delta Air Lines Inc. pilots agreed to accept reduced pay in exchange for job security until 2022, as the industry continues to grapple with reduced travel demand due to the coronavirus pandemic. Delta and the union that represents its pilots said Wednesday that the cost-cutting agreement would prevent the more than 1,700 pilot furloughs the carrier had originally planned. Under the agreement, pilots who would have been furloughed will receive pay for 30 hours a month, though they won’t have to fly. Delta will also be able...

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.

Delta Air Lines pilots voted in favor of pay cuts that would avoid furloughs until 2022 as the industry reels from the coronavirus pandemic, their labor union said Wednesday. The deal allows the company to lower pilots' guaranteed hours by as much 5%. The plan won 74% approval, said the union, which represents Delta's close to 13,000 pilots. Delta has avoided involuntary furloughs thanks to the deal and the thousands of employees that accepted buyouts and voluntary leaves of absence. Southwest Airlines is negotiating with several of its unions on cost-cutting and other measures that it has said could prevent its first involuntary furloughs in its nearly 50 years of flying.

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.
