Airline shares soared higher on Monday on another positive development in the race to produce a COVID-19 vaccine, and on data indicating a strong weekend for travel. American Airlines Group (NASDAQ: AAL) led the sector higher, closing up 8.2% for the day. Airlines have been hard hit by the pandemic, which has caused travel demand to plummet.

"We're talking to Boeing about lots of different things, the Max included," Delta's chief executive told the Financial Times. Any Boeing 737 MAX order would be the first for Delta, which did not have the aircraft in its fleet when the plane was grounded in March 2019 following two fatal crashes. Reuters reported in October, Delta is among airlines Boeing has approached to buy dozens of 737 MAX jets built for clients that have since scrapped their orders or gone bust, citing two people familiar...
