A brief history of apples

Do you always have a piece of fruit for your lunch? If you do, it's probably an apple! This is true, in places like western Europe, where apples have been grown for hundreds of years. So it would be easy to that's where they came from originally.

In fact, though, the fruit we know today has been on an extraordinary journey over the centuries. Research suggests apples came all the way from Kazakhstan in Asia, and ended up in Europe partly because of people carrying goods along the famous Silk Road, from western Europe all the way to China in the east. This helped to apples in both directions. People threw down their apples after they'd finished eating them, and the seeds entered the ground and new types of apple trees. Farmers were then able to start developing a much broader of apples.

Read the passage.

Airlines Get Creative to Keep Money Coming In

As the coronavirus spread, many countries have not operated international flights to keep the virus from spreading. At the same time, the number of people traveling by air within countries also dropped. Some travel limits have now been relaxed, but many countries are still limiting international air travel. And even when air travel is allowed, many people simply aren’t interested in flying, seeing it as too dangerous.

The coronavirus has also brought added costs for airlines, including many new steps to keep passengers safe. To allow social distancing, most airlines aren’t using their middle seats. Others are looking at completely changing the seat layout to better protect passengers. Many airlines have encouraged more people to fly by cutting down costs for changing tickets.

The loss of passengers and the extra costs have been a disaster for airlines. Running an airline is hugely expensive, and many airlines have been unable to survive. At least 14 airlines have shut down because of the coronavirus.

To keep money coming in, airlines are getting creative. Since there aren’t as many passengers, many airlines are now carrying more goods (packages and similar items). One airline, AirAsia Group, is now focusing on delivering fruits and vegetables. Other airlines are offering unusual “trips”. Australia’s Qantas Airlines is selling sight-seeing trips over Antarctica. An airline in Japan offered a 90-minute flight with a Hawaii theme, where the plane crew wore Hawaiian shirts and served special drinks. In Taiwan and China, passengers buy a plane ticket and get to fly around their own country for a few hours before landing at the same airport.

The coronavirus has also affected companies that work with airlines. Several companies that provide food to airlines are now selling airplane meals directly to customers. AirAsia even opened a restaurant selling airplane food at a mall in Malaysia.

The effects of the pandemic on airlines will continue for a long time. In order to survive, airlines will need to keep coming up with new and creative ways to make money.
