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.

Each year, 100,000 people apply for a position as a Delta flight attendant, but only 3,000 people get the job. Business Insider visited the Delta Air Lines Flight Attendant Training Center in Atlanta to see what it takes to be a flight attendant. Bundridge: Over 195,000 applications come into Delta Air Lines, and of those, 3,000, for this year alone, will get to come through these doors and be a Delta Air Lines flight attendant. They've shipped them here, and our flight attendants go into these mock-ups, and they practice different types of scenarios. Hillis: But once a flight attendant leaves and graduates and is a flight attendant flying out there on the line, their training isn't over.

REUTERS/Steve Marcus(Reuters) - Delta Air Lines Chief Executive Ed Bastian said the travel corridor between New York and London is complicated and it would be easier to relaunch transatlantic flights to "just about any" other European capital, Britain's Financial Times (here) reported on Sunday. Americans can travel to the UK but have been required since the spring to spend two weeks in quarantine on arrival. The same rule applies for passengers arriving in the United States from London. “I think New York-London is complicated”, Bastian told the newspaper, casting doubt over hopes of opening an air corridor for the previously lucrative route for several airlines including British Airways and Virgin Atlantic.

REUTERS/Steve Marcus(Reuters) - Delta Air Lines Chief Executive Ed Bastian hinted at the possibility of purchasing Boeing Co’s 737 MAX, which was recently approved to fly again by U.S. regulators, in an interview to the Financial Times on Sunday. "We're talking to Boeing about lots of different things, the Max included," Delta's chief executive told the Financial Times. (here)Any Boeing 737 MAX order would be the first for Delta, which did not have the aircraft in its fleet when the plane was grounded in March 2019 following two fatal crashes. “If there is an opportunity where we would feel comfortable acquiring the MAX we’d have no hesitation doing that,” Bastian added. The United States lifted a 20-month-old flight ban on Boeing 737 MAX on Wednesday, easing a safety crisis that left its top exporter with a tarnished reputation and hundreds of idle jets.

(Reuters) - The United States recorded its 12th million COVID-19 case on Saturday, even as millions of Americans were expected to travel for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, ignoring warnings from health officials about furthering the spread of the infectious disease. Reuters data shows the pace of new U.S. infections has quickened, with nearly one million more cases recorded in just the last 6 days before the latest record. This compares with the 8 days it took to get from 10 million cases to 11 million, and the 10 days it took to get from 9 million to 10 million. Friday marked another milestone in the United States as the highest number of new COVID-19 cases was reported - 196,815 infections in a day. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has issued a “strong recommendation” to Americans to refrain from all kinds of travel over Thanksgiving.

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.

Armenia and Azerbaijan signed an agreement last week to end six weeks of bloody fighting over the disputed enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh. We'll probably see an emergence of a new regional security framework where the West is absent and the presence of the Russian peacekeepers has not been sanctioned by the UN. Instead, it's just an agreement between Russia and the two parties to the conflict, with Turkey in the background. Or Russia can try to broker a deal with Azerbaijan and Turkey in order to let the Russian peacekeepers stay. Now the Russian military is back.

Associated Press/Richard VogelA Boeing 777 Freighter, for example, can only carry around 6,000 kilograms of dry ice, Sutch said. That means Pfizer's vaccine can only fill 5% of the plane's total capacity. "We will see full freighters of COVID vaccines flying around, but not ones currently that are using dry ice," Sutch said.

The tests used at most testing sites rely on specialized chemicals and equipment that have been subject to chronic shortages for months. In some cases, he said, lines are caused by a lack of scheduling by testing locations, which should stagger appointments. In recent months, federal health officials have distributed roughly 60 million rapid, point-of-care tests that deliver results in 15 minutes. This week, Quest Diagnostics warned that mushrooming demand for testing has increased its turnaround time to slightly more than two days. Godbey emphasized a stark point that health officials have been making for months: The U.S. outbreak is too large to be contained by testing alone.

American Airlines said it expected to operate about 15 percent more flights around the holiday than in the rest of the month. “They see that mask compliance is really good; they’ve seen how clean the planes are; they’ve maybe even seen the electrostatic sprayers in action; they’ve seen us board the plane back to front, they’ve seen social distancing on the jet bridge — all of that has contributed to greater confidence in air travel,” said Josh Earnest, United’s chief communications officer. Thanksgiving may improve the airline industry’s fortunes, but prospects for passenger demand in the weeks ahead are dimming. Southwest Airlines said last week that booking momentum seemed to be slowing for the rest of the year. To some extent, the unevenness of the travel recovery comes as little surprise, said Helane Becker, managing director and senior airline analyst at Cowen.
