Sun Country starting a route to Vancouver next summer.
I'm excited to have another option to Vancouver. Hopefully it'll help keep Delta in check since pricing on this route can get crazy.

39.6 Million Passengers used MSP this year! More impressively, I think, is that 63% of passengers originated here as opposed to connected through here.

Delta announced today that they are retiring the 777 fleet by the end of the year. While it is only 18 planes, it’s an indication that they anticipate a prolonged slowdown of international travel. It will probably quite some time before MSP regains all the long haul flights it had before the pandemic.

It took 18 years for passenger levels to get back to pre-9/11. This may be longer than that.

I’m not sure what metric you are using, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t 18 years.

I doubt it. if no vaccine cure is created and herd immunity is required then forsure after 2 years we will be see everything starting to open back up, and within 2 years of that (4 total) people will start to get back to normal once they see everything is in the past.

However if there IS a vaccine cure then 30-60 days after they get there shot people are going to feel invisible, superior to all non-vaccinated humans and will obnoxiously start hugging babies, licking telephone poles, and bats in Tic Toc and other social media platform challenges for attention. And when people start seeing that and realize they are not getting sick they will realize it's safe to go outside again, sit in the middle seat on a long haul flight again too. We are a social species, everything will return back to normal quickly within 2-4 years.
