First-class air travel will need time to regain glory

The pandemic has sent shockwaves through the entire aviation industry. It’s also not clear to what extent the premium market (first- and business class combined), which generated 30 per cent of airlines’ international revenues in 2019, can recover. For many airlines, business travel has not yet returned in any meaningful way.

Some overseas routes have resumed, but traffic has barely started to creep back. According to IATA, international passenger demand was down 92 per cent in July. The overall average load factors on international long-haul flights were between 40-50 per cent.

Some airlines have used the pandemic to permanently downgrade their offerings

Scottsdale’s Digital Air Strike uses tech to help clients in pandemic

CLOSE

The demolition had already begun when she found out the construction loan that would pay for the home remodel was cancelled. She had just launched a new business. And, she was expecting a baby.

Oh, and there was a little thing called the recession that was the constant backdrop.

But not only did all of that fail to deter Alexi Venneri, the CEO and co-founder of Digital Air Strike, it set her and her Scottsdale consumer engagement technology company up for near invincibility.

Or at least well-equipped to navigate the challenges of an unforeseen pandemic.
