- The first new 737 MAX in years made its way to China, another indication that the market there might finally resume MAX flights
- Delta is rumored to be ready to buy the MAX 10
- Mask rules are changing, though airlines are having trouble keeping up in some cases
- SkyWest wants to cut a bunch of EAS markets, blaming a lack of pilots, but will the DOT let that happen?
