Storyboard Description

Airlines expect pullback in demand as they lock in September schedules. The airline industry is about to enter a critical period. Carriers are locking in their September schedules, and they're expecting a pullback in demand. CNBC's Phil LeBeau reports. Delta's chief executive officer says business travel continues to lag but remains optimistic about the airline's countermeasures — including its policy to create distance among passengers by blocking middle seats during the novel corona-virus pandemic. Delta Air Lines Inc. CEO Ed Bastian made the comments during Delta's sec-ond quarter earnings call Tuesday, July 14. Delta posted a $7 billion pre-tax loss and saw year-over-year operational revenue fall by 91% in the quarter as the pandemic ravaged the commercial aviation industry. As other commercial airlines have warned employees of poten-tial furloughs and layoffs before the end of this year, Bastian said he is hopeful the Atlanta-based carrier can avoid involuntary separations. #Pullback#Demands#SeptemberSchedule #Lock#Expect#LeBeau reports. #Aviation#AviationNews #AviationIndustry #Airlines#Careers#CriticalPeriod
