Are we maybe a little bit closer to a new normal? I hope we are for our travel business. Are people traveling a little bit more? The short answer is yes. Today we visited the Delta Airlines terminal at LaGuardia. We were told that delta is back up to 65 flights out of LGA up from the low of only 7 flights a day at the height of the infection rate. It is good sign but a normal day is 275 Delta flights a day out of LGA. But I was glad to see a bit more air passenger traffic and people starting to move around a bit more.
We just have to hope the infection rate comes down nation wide. So far that’s not the case. We still have a huge public health problem. If we can get the infection rate down to 1% like it is here in NY in the rest of the country we could make big steps to getting back to normal.
