United Airlines CEO expects demand recovery to continue despite new variants

(Reuters) – United Airlines Chief Executive Scott Kirby said on Wednesday that he expects a recovery in travel demand to continue “largely unabated” despite a resurgence in COVID-19, spurred by the more contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus.

Speaking to investors after second-quarter results, Kirby noted, however, that a temporary pullback in reopenings is possible and harder to predict due to political dimensions.
