AIRLINES SEEING A REBOUND IN BIZ TRAVEL…

Posted on 15 December 2009

The three largest U.S. airlines say they are seeing an uptick in demand for business and premium tickets, which could signal the beginning of a recovery¬† in all-important corporate travel. At Delta Air Lines, chief financial officer Hank Halter said yesterday that the company sold more corporate tickets in November than it did in the same month last year-the first such increase all year. But Delta, the world’s largest airline, had to cut prices to get those sales. At American Airlines, officials said both leisure and premium travel were beginning to pick up, especially on international routes. The CFO of United Airlines also said corporate travel was continuing to improve.
