That's a good use for those older and smaller planes.
You bet. Used to be they got sold to flight expanding world areas like South America. But now, thanks to the pandemic, no need for these planes for that purpose but pandemic has created big need for cargo planes for products delivered to homes through Internet buying.
The cost of a coach ticket from Rochester, NY to Amsterdam, Netherlands has more than doubled since before the pandemic. This is based on a recent booking I made. The price increase is greater than that for competing airlines, including KLM. It's easy for me to believe that with higher fares and lower levels of service, an airline like Delta is bound to recover pretty well. As for its passengers, well, that's a different matter.
