Rising COVID-19 A Set Back For U.S. Airlines

Following a brisk resumption in travel, airlines are again in a spot of bother as the rise in the Delta variant of the COVID-19 begins to take its toll.

The industry has seen a drop in bookings after a strong summer start.

Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian said people are still traveling, but key segments — business and international flyers — are still largely missing. 

He said the rise in COVID-19 cases won’t derail the travel recovery but will delay it by 90 to 120 days.
