Exclusive: Delta pilots received record overtime while MAX crisis hit rivals - unions
Wednesday, 9 October 2019 Delta Air Lines pilots are receiving record overtime, straining the airline's labor costs, partly as it adds more flights to take advantage of a gap in demand left by the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX at rival carriers, union officials told Reuters.
TSA on Monday reported that 831,789 travelers passed through its checkpoints on Sunday. This is the highest number since March 17th, just before the US explosion of coronavirus. In addition, traveler traffic has consistently increased over the last two weeks, reports Business Insider. Shares of major airlines including American Airlines, United Airlines, and Delta Air Lines surged Monday. Still, total traffic through TSA checkpoints is down roughly 70% from a year ago.
