Airlines are adding seats and flights as the optimistic
travel outlook the industry has had for a good portion of the year continues.
In November, the 10 largest U.S. airlines scheduled 2.7%
more seats for passengers than the year before. Nine out of 10 airlines added seats by expanding the number of flights
or moving to bigger planes.
JetBlue lead the pack with an increase of 7.6% while Delta
Air Lines added 5%. With good signs of improvement in the economy, travel
demand, especially from the corporate sector is on the rise.
