Are people returning to the skies? American Airlines shares soared 41% yesterday, followed by strong gains by its peers

the carrier said it would boost July flights 74% from June, signalling that U.S. travellers exiting from lockdowns are returning to the air quicker than expected. The busiest days next month will have about 4,000 flights, up from 2,300 in June.


Could you have pre-empted this share move with the right data? TSA passenger data from U.S. airports has yet to show a dramatic uptick. Passenger numbers in the last week were down 87% YoY but have improved versus a month ago when they were down 95% YoY. Bookings data shows that LA, Dallas and Atlanta flights have recovered the quickest, benefiting Delta (Atlanta, LA) the most, followed by American Airlines (LA, Dallas) and Southwest (Dallas). Looking at schedules data we can see that North American capacity increased 16% vs the prior week but still down 71% versus January levels. Capacity in Europe added 41% vs prior week and the Middle East added the most with 128% over a week.
