When Will Aviation Return To Pre-Coronavirus Levels?

As we all know, the airline industry has been devastated by the COVID-19 viral outbreak.   Estimates indicate that over 90% of flights have been cancelled.  Airline employees and workers at airports in related businesses have been laid off or have lost their jobs.  Many are wondering if the jobs will ever return. Recent photos widely circulated on social media of a jam packed New York to San Francisco flight raised highly emotional safety concerns on the web.   Now as airlines tip toe into re-opening Delta has announced that plane capacity will be limited to 60%.  With this new limitation will come higher ticket prices, however Delta is stressing passenger safety in an effort to reinvigorate confidence in the flying public.  To help it get through these difficult times, over 41,000 Delta employees out of its approximately 90,000 employees have volunteered to take unpaid leave through the end of 2020.  Only time will tell if and when the public will confidently fly again, but Delta is counting on a comeback and doing its best to provide safe transport.
