Other Forms Of Communication Are Evolving. Airline Travel Is Not.
Changes. Disruption. Those terms pretty much describe the situation facing the U.S. airline industry in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. But there is one other dynamic in play that hasn't yet been completely grasped or even identified by the airline industry It's called evolution. Air transportation is one of the nation's communication channels. All communication channels have been affected and changed by the response to the pandemic. Air travel in particular has been choked, forcing the use of other channels in the day-to-day inter-communication of business, government and private citizens. Since physical travel is hampered, electronic means of interaction have seen massive growth.
