This board used to be the American Airline board. However, it is more reasonable IMO to have a board that discusses more generally the broader airline business. This includes the "big four" airlines in the US (AAL, DAL, UAL, and LUV) as well as international carriers and suppliers such as Boeing and Airbus and GE and any other businesses that supply airlines (leasing companies, food suppliers, etc). The business is undergoing huge changes thanks to the coronavirus pandemic; talking about those changes is also very relevant to the board. That doesn't mean that the board should veer into politics--NO POLITICS. Any post deemed to be political will be deleted and any poster who veers into politics more than once will be banned.
An airline is a company that provides air transport services for
traveling passengers and freight. Airlines utilize aircraft to supply
these services and may form partnerships or alliances with other
airlines for codeshare agreements, in which they both offer and
operate the same flight. Generally, airline companies are recognized
with an air operating certificate or license issued by a governmental
aviation body. Airlines may be scheduled or charter operators.
