Delta Trims Flying Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

Delta Air Lines Inc. trimmed plans for more summer flights amid rising Covid-19 cases nationwide after a $5.7 billion loss for the latest quarter underscored the depth of the crisis facing the aviation industry.

Chief Executive Ed Bastian said that the recovery from April’s near-collapse in domestic flying had stalled, and that Delta will halve the number of extra flights it adds in August to 500.
