@ByERussell Business travel has only recovered to about 20% of pre-pandemic levels Delta Air Lines executives said today, and even with a summer surge in holidaygoers — road warriors aren’t expected back in notable numbers until the fall. $DAL.

@ByERussell Former United Express operator ExpressJet hopes to relaunch flights in Q2 with up to 10 ERJ-145s. Plans “point-to-point flying to small and medium sized cities,” per DOT filing.
@lesliejosephs Delta CEO says U.S.-continental Europe won’t likely be open for much of the summer. U.S.-U.K. has a shot. $DAL.
