    There is a real world disconnect. Airlines are all in debt. To manage the sebt, they create more debt. Routes are in service at 10%. Planes are carrying 40% of passengers. Tickets sold at gate war pricing. It cost more to fly each plane than they make on ticket sales.

    and why is everyone jumping into a sinking ship?

    It will take years for the airlines to recover. At least 1 will fold. $LUV is the strongest at the moment. I admit that I bought UAL and JBLU at a very low point, then got out right about where my money doubled. Now they are at well below my sell point, and I am watching. As a long term investment, this isn't it.

    AAL just announced they're going to start flying at "full capacity" again. We all know the normal full capacity of people aren't actually flying, but the planes that are flying will be no restrictions again.

    Are they resuming all routes, selling all seats, or both?

    United's debt has become decidedly unfriendly.

    I believe they will no longer have capacity limits on their planes. They will fully book each plane. I'm sure many of their routes will be limited as there are less people traveling for work, and many who are uncomfortable traveling completely still.

    From a business perspective, you have to fill seats, and charge as much as possible for the seat.

    As a private person, I am not riding that plane.
