Episode 36: Can Airlines Recover After a Turbulent Year?
The coronavirus pandemic has disrupted air travel so much that the airline industry is expected to lose more than $80 billion in 2020, according to the International Air Transport Association. Will there be a recovery for the industry in 2021? And how might air travel change forever? To find out, we talk to Chris Schaberg, Loyola University New Orleans professor and the author of a new book about airlines’ COVID-19 response, recovery and future.
Christopher Schaberg is the Dorothy Harrell Brown Distinguished Professor of English at Loyola University New Orleans and the author of six books. His new book is “Grounded: Perpetual Flight . . . and Then the Pandemic.”
