For the first couple of months of next year that that you know some of these deals right now they are desperately saying book and book right now, and it's a trend of the airlines started seeing in early August as adult a variant was spreading that While they had been saying no, no, no, that things were still looking good. They were bringing back Cruz planes were full airports were backed, but that's all changed. And now today A bunch of the major airlines made filings with the federal government, saying that their outlook has changed and that travel demand has disappeared again because of the Delta very in Today. Andrew Acela at United and exact. They're telling an investors conference that they're seeing a big uptick and canceled trips lack in booking for the fall. Here's what he's saying. Headlines for. And over the variant and what was happening here in the country and around the world really kind of overtook the situation. Um and quickly kind of change the outlooks, which now I think, reflect You know, when the eight Keighley united put out this morning, um, thing quite frankly, what we're seeing around the industry? Yeah, pretty much. Everybody reports that they're seeing And they do. Though Taylor believe the travel demand over Thanksgiving Christmas, New Year's will come back will be strong. The prices will be high again. So this is what it means for you. They need you. They want you to travel. That prices are plummeting right now. Round trip to Europe under 300 bucks in some cases to Florida under 200 l a x to Maui 99 bucks each way. And over the travel site Hopper. They say the deal is pretty incredible that the airlines are They know that between now and about mid November, their business has dried up, and they need you to fill that we found that the absolute cheapest prices are going to start appearing around mid September or next week. Make sure you're looking at least four weeks in advance at least three weeks in advance for Thanksgiving as well. So not good news for the airlines may be good news for you. If you want to travel normally during the fall, business travel would be strong. They don't have that because so many people We're still working remotely. The leisure travel has now canceled and they've got a lot of open seats and they'll they'll make deals. And now is that time and customers kind of get their pick now, for those who prefer to fly, maybe with a vaccinated crew how our airlines approaching vaccine mandates. Yes. So the interesting thing is in the last 24 hours United laying out what it's going to do. It was one of the few major airlines to say that all employees have to be vaccinated. And they sent a letter to their employees, saying those who have been approved for religious exemptions and aren't getting vaccinated. They're not going to be working. They're going to go on unpaid leave, and if they have a medical exemption, they're going to go on medical leave beginning October, 2nd. But they won't be working and many won't be paid with that either, depending on their contract And what union there in But the bottom line. They're saying, if you have been denied an exemption as a united employee for those who don't want to get vaccinated if they deny you and then you don't get vaccinated Within five weeks, you will be terminated that you will be fired from the company. So They're making it known that if you aren't getting vaccinated with an exemption year that off the job and likely not getting paid, and if you refuse to get vaccinated that then the airline is just going to fire you.
