“Booking trends remain volatile and the company continues to believe that demand and revenue recovery will be non-linear through the fourth quarter and beyond,” said the New York-based airline.

It expects the average daily cash burn in the fourth quarter to be between $6 million and $8 million, compared with the previous forecast of between $4 million and $6 million.

It also predicted a 70% drop in revenue, compared with its previous expectation of a drop of about 65%.
