Eventually they will. Gradually ramping up as travelers return.

COVID PARKED PLANES?  This is news to me!!!  Please explain or give me more detail.  There should also be more flights and routes open up as the MAXX returns to service today.

I don’t know if there is actually a parking lot for any 700 or 800 aircraft, most of these are probably still in service and just making less frequent trips, it’s not desirable to lay up an aircraft for long periods of time to keep the passenger areas in shape. Only the Max aircraft were literally parked as far as I know.
