Delta is reducing system capacity by 15% and American Airlines will cut back during their summer season by 10%. United Airlines also shared recent data showing that the number of flight bookings in the U.S. has dropped as the virus has continued to spread. Delta CEO Ed Bastian recently commented that the company will also be looking to reduce costs by $1.8 billion this year in order to protect their financial position.
