While you may not be able to travel to see these gorgeous waterfalls, there may be some within a short drive of where you live. What’s your favorite waterfall destination?

Airlines are also dealing with Boeing and Airbus delivery delays, which is affecting their ability to serve new destinations, benefit from lower maintenance costs and offer the latest technology to passengers. Business passengers are a major source of revenue because they’re not as price-sensitive as consumers, so they’re often willing to pay for premium seats or higher prices on last-minute flights.
