Daily revenues at United Airlines have plummeted along with passenger numbers as travelers heed warnings to "flatten the curve" and stay home amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The Chicago-based carrier's revenue is down by "over $100 million a day" as planes fly with around just 15% of seats filled this week, United president Scott Kirby told employees in a virtual town hall viewed by TPG on Thursday. This comes even as the airline slashes nearly 70% of its schedule in April with further cuts likely for May.
A revenue drop of that much, even with some cost savings, is a dire place for any business to be.
