Delta Air and LATAM declare bold ambitions for Miami

Premium Analysis

Airlines worldwide do not have a lot of spare time to look beyond the immediate crisis created by the COVID-19 pandemic. They continue to focus on building up liquidity and attempting to determine the right size of their operations until a full recovery occurs.
