Southwest Airlines on Tuesday posted its first quarterly loss since 2011 and predicted “no material improvement in air travel trends” this spring as coronavirus devastates demand.

The Dallas-based airline lost $94 million in the quarter on revenue of $4.23 billion, an 18% decline in sales compared with a year earlier, slightly lower than analyst estimates.

The airline said it expects its operating revenues next month to fall as much as 95% from a year earlier but warned it is “unable to reasonably estimate trends beyond May 2020.”
