Delta airlines will be laying off 50% of there pilots if things don’t get better this fall. Also, they will be closing down there Cincinnati base and will be taking 18 Boeing 777 jets out of the sky. They also had to cut there April schedule by 80%.
Another big part of this is that because of coronavirus, most people think it is just not safe to fly. So that means there will be fewer passengers per flight. Even though they are throw about cleaning the plane, who wants to sit on a plane for a couple of hours with a mask on that is hard to breathe in.
Another big factor is the company’s budget. They might not be able to pay all of there employees.
But fewer passengers means less weight and less weight means less fuel. Plus, the fuel sometimes can cost more than the plane itself. So they could be saving money if they added less cargo. However, the company is getting paid extra money for flying cargo that does not belong to the passengers. Like masks and hand sanitizer.
So, in conclusion, what can Delta do to get back there travelers? Well not much because the economy is going down and it is a big risk to fly these days. Thank you for reading and I hope to see you next time. Safe travels.
