A couple of months? The liability of making employees risk getting sick is too great for companies to allow anything other than the most essential of business travel. Especially if it requires gatherings of people. As long as we're officially in a Pandemic no insurance will cover that.

Airlines get free money from the FEDs. No need to "make money without passengers at the front of the plane".
