Just caught the commute from ORD to DEN on UAL yesterday, 130 seats open...

While I was stoked to have an easy commute, seeing that many seats open was unnerving to say the least.

No, it's to shift to A350 production which has a longer list of orders and is also more profitable. LINK

The highly profitable business traveler went *poof* but Spirit caters to a different market.

That being said I'd be really surprised if they don't see demand destruction as well

Regardless of how big of a health threat the virus really is, the damage to our industry will get worse before it gets better.

This site has real time where the virus is and who died where or put another way mortality rate by country. Of course elderly patients skew the mortality data but itís still interesting.

If you think Spirit is immune to the Coronavirus, youíre in for a rude awakening.

Nancy and Tom from Podunk USA arenít going to be taking their yearly trip to Myrtle Beach because theyíre too busy stocking up on toilet paper and bottled water.
