(Reuters) - Southwest Airlines Co(LUV) warned on Wednesday it may not be profitable in the third quarter, as the more infectious Delta variant of the coronavirus hits bookings, sending its shares down 2% in premarket trading.

The airline said cancellations had increased this month due to the variant, becoming the first major U.S. airline to flag a hit from the more infectious strain.

The company forecast third-quarter operating revenue to be down 15% to 20% versus 2019, a cut of about three to four points from its prior outlook issued three weeks ago.

Southwest (LUV) said the effects of pandemic on August and September revenue trends would make it difficult for the company to be profitable in the third quarter of 2021.

For me, JETS has been a great way to participate in the C-19 Recovery in air traffic. I'd bought well back last year at just under $14 so I've managed to do okay so far. However, I'd also expected more Take-Offs and Landings along the way. It gained altitude thru 2020 and peaked in March, 2021. Since then it's been on a slow glide path with no big thermals or wind sheers.

I need something sweeter than $19.50 to rebuild share inventory and something higher than $29.50 to shed another 10% of the holding. JETS just doesn't seem to want to cooperate, however. So, for this post, it gets a RATE of Hold, or three stars.

I also have had PK in my portfolio for much the same reason.



As shown here, they seem to have filed the same Flight Plan for much of the last 12 months. I've kept my seatbelt fastened and put my tray table up for now.

Best wishes,
OAG

The value of seat space during a pandemic
by Tyler Cowen
August 13, 2021
Delta Air Lines did not sell the middle seat in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Its principal rivals sold all seats starting in July 2020.

Delta raised its fares by 15%.

Passengers paid $23 to prevent a stranger from sitting next to them.

Delta had to operate more flights, so this was not a profit-enhancing strategy.

Here is the paper, via the excellent Kevin Lewis.

Interesting, but I don't believe it was a factor in the
price of airline stocks during this pandemic. Delta's
routes are not all in competition with other airlines
and if someone wanted to fly from timbuk to tu he
would have chosen his timbuktu flights based upon
his best choices of what was available, prices, times,
and conveniences, same as always.
