by Michael Sivak, Sivak Applied Research. Among the variables included in my ongoing monthly monitoring of key transportation indexes is revenue passenger miles for domestic flying. That monitoring has shown a huge pandemic-related drop in flying during the spring of 2020 and a gradual rebound later in 2020 and in early 2021. However, the underlying data for that analysis (from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics ) are published with a substantial lag.
