Reuters ahead with news on planemaker, airlines struggle with pandemic

Reuters was ahead with key aerospace and airline news, including exclusively reporting that Airbus told senior staff the company must be “resized” in plans to be set out around end-June and is ready to cut jet production again to tackle any second wave of the coronavirus crisis. Reuters also broke the news that Delta Air Lines expects to have 7,000 more pilots than it needs in the fall as the coronavirus pandemic weighs on its operations and that the top three U.S. airlines – American Airlines Group Inc, Delta Air Lines Inc and United Airlines Holdings Inc – have told their flight attendants not to force passengers to comply with their new policy requiring face coverings, just encourage them to do so.
