"They just wanna run into all of these problems and they're trying everything to limit people being as angry as much as they can. They can and there are various reasons for it if not all alcohol but they just don't want to put more fuel and the fire and the flight attendants at a greater risk. So they're delaying some alcohol sales and the coach cabin I was just the dallas fort worth and some of the airport bars have signs up saying it illegal to bring alcohol with you onto an aircraft gate. Agent is some of the airlines making announcements. Do not bring alcohol aboard the reasons really really very and the cases vary from verbal abuse and insult and things like that which the flight attendants they. We're on them every day. Going up to things like assault and some of the things that we've seen in these more severe cases or cases where you can passengers have had to step in to try to stop other passengers from acting out. The other thing that we're seeing too is a lot of flights being canceled. this has to do with staffing issues. American airlines had to cancel a bunch of flights due to that more people are trying to go on vacations and the airline industry is just trying to catch up. Still they are trying to catch up airlines fifty four billion dollars in taxpayer money. Most of it in the form of grants that they don't have to pay back so that they can keep employees one of the things that they did was encouraged urge and pleated really with their employees to take as many unpaid or partially paid leaves of absence or buyouts and early retirement packages so they lost a lot of employees. There's also a lot of re-training that needs to go on. You had some employees that were idled. Maybe there were still employed. But there wasn't any flying for them to do think of pilots so american airlines is putting their pilots ones that are for training They're putting them through those programs now hoping to finish that up in june when thing to note about american airlines. They're they're canceling about a thousand flights because nine fifty one percent of the schedule not a ton of sites. This is through the middle july. It's not a lot but has expanded scheduled much more than its competitors united and delta. They've been a bit more conservative so they did see. That man was picking up and they very aggressively after it. I'm so what they're trying to do. Now is avoid people getting to the airport and having their flight cancelled then for having this cascade of other delays and operational things which can be really disastrous and very costly for the airline and taking care of it early and re accommodating travelers where they can. they're not all gonna like that might have stopped in their eighteen array or. They won't let the times that they're put on other flights but they would rather do that now. And take care of it and have it happens day of leslie. Joseph's airline reporter at cnbc.

EU Further Sanctions Belarus After Roman Protasevich Arrest
"The european union has now imposed additional sanctions on belarus after that eastern european country forced a ryanair flight to lithuania to land in belarus under a false claim of a bomb threat. A pretense for arresting roman produce age a- prominent opposition journalist from belarus. Who was on board. So what questions does this now. Race for the airline industry here. Now's transportation alice. Seth kaplan is here. And seth we know some countries are now ordering their airlines to avoid the airspace over belarus. The eu advise them to do so. How big a deal is this. Well i you just start with the logistics of that and indeed if you look one of those websites or apps where you can see live radar flight radar twenty four to wear one of those. There's basically as big hole over belarus. Right now he's the airplanes all over europe except there as as flights have begun again in the aftermath of the pandemic but not over belarus. And so that tells you that airlines are basically having to fly out of the way having to spend more on fuel that sort of thing at time to their flights where they usually would have flown over belarus. Well yeah a lot of airlines saying. They're not even going to travel over the country. At all which means you can't fly in or out of belarus right if to western europe at least right and you know not a lot of demand right now probably because of what's happening right exactly in terms of actually fighting to were from there and and the greater impact is yeah just the fact that airlines typically overfly belarus the eighties along a lot of common routes so even a lot of us who have never been to belarus like myself I almost certainly flown over it. If we've flown ever between europe and asia. Let's say

"airline industries" Discussed on The Patriot AM 1150
"David Anthony. One year ago, the world was shutting down and fear of the Corona virus was keeping Maura of us home on this day March 17 2020. The number of passengers who went through T Essa Airport checkpoints dropped under a million. They kept dropping by April 7th. It was under 100,000. Week later, it hit the lowest point of the pandemic. Just 87,000 fliers. It wasn't till October that we had a million again for a day, then for a few days each around Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's, But this month we've gone over a million Flyers 10 times already five days in a row with Friday's 1.35 million, the most since March 15th of last year and all those numbers, maybe because of these numbers over the last seven days, we're now averaging. 2.4 million shots per day. Andy Slavitt is the White House senior adviser for covert response. We are accelerating vaccinations. In anticipation of meeting the president's goal. Being ready to be open up all vaccinations to all adults By May 1st, the latest, so that's in the recent decline in new virus cases, and it being spring break time as more people traveling to the U. S. U. S airline industry. Yeah, it's a brighter picture. They're going to be cash positive, probably by June, but it's not out of the woods just yet. Michael Boyd is an aviation expert with his own consulting firm, Boyd Group International. They're trying to go to new markets they wouldn't have gone to a year ago. Southwestern Land's never would've looked at Eugene, Oregon or Fort Walton Beach. Or Bellingham, Washington. But now they have to, because that's where the leash or traffic might be generating an airline's every month. They look at their files schedule in April. They just cut about 20% out of what they had planned to fly in April, so they're managing, but we're not anywhere near 2019 yet. How full is an average flight? Well, now you know the worry we're getting Probably us. Airline industry is under 50%. While you know in normal times before you got this gift from you know where It was like in the eighties and airlines trying to adjust to that because I've got a lot of airplanes and these bailout for employees is great, except really just keeping him on peril, not at work. How many months before we get pilots and others who have been furloughed back on the job. Do you think it's gonna be awhile? Because we have a very, very different air transportation industry than we did We have a different Khanna me. You know, we've gotten used to doing things by Elektronik meetings a lot more than we would have. Leisure traffic is in a boom state are starting to. We don't know how long that's gonna last. The end of 2023 before the traffic levels get back to where they were in 2019 you mentioned, you know, zoom and virtual United Airlines leader he had said that I do think where you're near the end of the virtual world. Do you agree with that? Or do you think, Cos they're still going to do a lot of zoom? Well, nobody has more respect for that man than I do. I mean, when he speaks Everybody shut up and listen, but I'm not so sure we are. I mean, I've even done legal depositions by zoom and it's so nice not to have a lawyer in the same room with you and you get the same thing done, so I think there's a lot of that going on. I think he's right in the sense that a lot of traffic will come back. Because I can do business by zoom. I can't network or meet people by zoom on. Do you know it's always nice to have a zoom call with my mom. But I haven't seen her in person in over a year. And a lot of people are itching to get back to see someone. They've been You know, thousands of miles away from That that's true. But the payroll meeting we're gonna have to the company system. Why now? We could do that by zoom. We don't have all have to fly into Chicago to do it and that was evolving anyway. But I just think we got it. We have a different air transportation system than we did before. And the question is How are they going to just keep in mind? International traffic is dead. The U. S airline industry is Rose's compared to the last rest of the world. What one example traffic between the US and China used to be almost 10 million people a year. On near permanent basis is going to be less than one million a year. Airlines have to adjust for that. We didn't have any bankruptcies out of this dead weight in the U. S. No, no, because they had a lot of things. They were in fact city when this happened, and they could, they could bulk up on a lot of debt, which they've done, and they have to work through that. But I mean, you know, United Airlines and American United Southwest We've got a lot of cash to get through this. They will. Now they gotta work out how they're going to pay all this off. But no, we don't have the bankruptcies. It all out of 9, 11 and other times when airlines have have struggled We've gotten new fees, baggage fees, all kinds of fees. What's coming? What should we expect as the next way for airlines to make up more revenue? Our lives are so innovative when it comes to sees mere mortals like you and I can't conceive of what they could come up with, but they will on began. Part of it is simply a fact. That's how they try toe. You know, adjust their revenues. I mean, Allegiant Airlines, probably 35% of their revenues come from fees but again, I think a lot of that will depend as we go for what happens with fuel prices. What kind of bailouts we're gonna have for our airline airport industry, which is in trouble, and that will depend on how much they charge has a lot of factors that go into this, But right now today I'm very confident The U. S airline industry is certainly heading toward daylight the rest of the world. I'm not betting on. You talked about the reports I haven't been to wanted in quite a while. So if I went to an airport are all the restaurants hoping or the stores in the terminal open? What's it like in there? How do I know? I've only been on an airplane twice in the last year, you know, Really? Okay. I figured you might be one of those that was still traveling. No, we had we had a major conference in Cincinnati. That was it. I mean, I just the problem is I don't need to travel. But I think at most airports keep in mind Eric US airports. I emphasize that in U. S airlines are probably the safest and most sanitized place you can go today. But some places the restaurants are open with some restrictions. Some places they're not. But again. Airports are suffering badly, because they're not gonna concession revenue, the parking revenue all those things where they got most of their revenue before Aren't there and airlines airports have to get through that make me feel like it's safe to get on an airplane. Well, put it this way. If If these disinfectants ever turned out to be carcinogens, we're in a world of hurt because I mean, you take a look here lines literally sprayed down airplanes when they arrived. Airports. We work with a couple of them. I was in Columbus, Mississippi, a couple months ago. And I mean literally, I don't I don't I know the hospital operating room. Is probably less safe because we know in the operating room usually is one sick person in an airport. We're not sure because they spray it down. They clean everything. I'm really impressed with the U. S airport industry. But I still have to sit closer to six closer than six FT. Two bunch people right on an airplane. There has been no domestic indications of any spread of this disease whatsoever. Only ones we've had his last year. We had a couple international flights that were carrying people specifically from infected areas back to Asia, and we had a couple infections there. We think, but not in the U. S. The air. Is constantly circulated right in a plane through flight, just like in a hospital operating room. It's hip. It's amazing what they do with that air so and it's changed every couple of minutes. That's not the way it was 20 years ago, but it is today with new airplanes. So if you're gonna have fresh air that's the way to go. Plus the airlines are absolutely slobbering, their airplanes and all their facilities with whatever they can to sanitize it, and they're doing a very good job of it. All the living ex presidents, with the exception of Donald Trump have teamed up to do a commercial urging us to help beat Cove it. I'm getting vaccinated because we want this pandemic to end as soon as possible, So we urge you to get vaccinated when it's available to you..

What happens if you test positive for COVID-19 and can’t fly back to the US?
"About 50,000 flight attendants from 17 Airlines wants those airlines to share their individual. No fly list information right now. Those lists are kind of airline specific. Jay Ratliff, Aviation expert Joining us all the coca News Live. I'm good to have you back J Hey, pleasant. Good morning. So these no fly lists. Um what are the no fly list about? Do they involve masks or are they just generally people behaving badly in the skies? When the mask policy was put into place by airlines is is kind of a way to Yeah, Get some passengers to be a little bit more comfortable about flying at first, you may remember is optional If he had a medical condition you didn't have to worry about wearing a mask, but it seems like 78% of the aircraft had some sort of medical issue. Opted not to wear them. So that's when it became mandatory for anyone over two years of age to wear masks during the entire flight over your nose and your mouth. Some passengers did not want to do that, And as a result, they created either issues in the gate or onboard an aircraft. And those passengers had to be removed or once the plate was completed. Escorted off of the aircraft, and those passengers were put on the airlines No fly list, which is basically This is in place until the mass policy is listed. And then we will welcome you back. But until then, since you've proven that you can't abide by our mass policy, we're gonna ban you until The policy is no longer in place that the issue is if I act upon a Delta flight and cause a disturbance that gets to wherever we're going, they pulled me off the flight and say, Look, you're not gonna be arrested. But you didn't follow the airlines mass policies were banning you from Delta Airlines for the time being. Could say Okay, and then I just zip on down to United. Grab a flight on them, and I can fly anywhere. I want to go and the flight attendants are saying, Look, if J X up on Delta. The consequences shouldn't only be on Delta. It should be on all U. S carriers. You're basically giving this crazy guy can opportunities on 10 different airlines to act up inconveniencing perhaps 10 different flights that they're on, and flight attendants are just that the point now where every single day Mask police. There's no federal guidelines for mass policies yet, so it's all the airline policy and most people recognize it As such, so they really don't feel threatened by, you know, getting in trouble, so to speak. Because they know it's going to be something that only involves that airline. There's not gonna be fined or anything like that. However, last week, the Federal Aviation Administration came out said Look, if you cause an onboard disturbance with an airline You face a possible fine of up to $35,000. So now there's a little bit more of an incentive for somebody like Jay to not create a problem with the mask or anything else. So that I don't get in trouble with the FAA. All right, So let's move on to, you know, travel in the age of covert with airlines that went toe, you know, they were started by keeping people at least one seat apart now, not so much on now. There's an Air American Airlines initiative for a health passport. So how does that work exactly? American Airlines is the first airline to adopt this health passport. They're working with Vera fly. It's an app that can show whether or not you've been tested for the coronavirus. And it comes in handy because now that the CDC is saying as of the 26th of this month, if you fly internationally, you're coming back into the United States. You're gonna have to prove that you've had a negative covert test within three days. Of your date of travel, or you have to show documentation that you had the coroner virus you recovered, Okay? And the issue is how do you prove that? Well, this app is in place. Now that will make these these medical testing or records available quickly. So it is you fly. You can show the agents you have, and then you'll be able to board the plate back into the United States. Clusters. Other countries around the world that had that same sort of requirement for entry into their country. And this type of Anak would satisfy those countries. For the most part. Or they could see Okay, you've been tested. It was in three days. No positive tests, You know, come on into the country. You don't have quarantine for 14 days. Alright, And we're gonna see more airlines following suit of this now. The real interesting part is Are we going to see this domestically? Qantas Airlines has already said once the vaccine is out there passengers have been vaccinated will be allowed to fly on certain flights if you've not been vaccinated. They're not gonna let you fly. Oh, if you think you think we're having fun over, you know, mask situations. Wait. So that rules out And when you guys were kidding about Burbank earlier, laughing because they said, you guys may not be too far off. If this type of thing happens domestically, I don't think it will. But I learned a long time ago. And 30 years of doing my aviation reports. You never say never when it comes to the airline industry. Oh, boy, they were at left.

What airlines, other industries got in $900B relief bill
"Or next guest. Points this out. Tax payers are putting up almost five hundred thousand dollars for each laid off airline worker to have three months of employment while cooks and waiters. Get nothing in other words. Airlines are outranking restaurants in relief. Money don't oh sarah. Bloomberg opinion columnist joins us now. Joe did thought go into this or was it a simple matter of the airline lobby being more powerful than the restaurant lobby well. They're barely is a restaurant lobby that start there whereas airlines have been Staffed up you might want say for for many decades because airlines have had dealings with the federal government from many decades between the faa and you know various various airline regulations. I wanna sell for so so you know you start there. I mean restaurants are just just diffused organization. They're not large companies. And even you know restaurant chains. I mean putting mcdonald's aside You know in a city. Like new york danny meyer. Who is probably the best known restaurant tour in the city. You know he has maybe twenty restaurants and do that just doesn't give him the clout that the airline industry has even though they employ more people and even though there are people are really really hurting. So joe this is a column by comparing and contrasting the airline industry with the restaurant business so the restaurants. Obviously it is a you know. It's it's industry. Lots of independent operators historically has not been pushed to organize better this industry that is so important to many people's daily lives. Well is a restaurant lobby of sorts. the national restaurant association. But it doesn't seem to have a lot of clout For whatever reason after the pandemic After the first round of of a stimulus the ppp program There are a bunch of independent restaurant. Tours tried to start an organization called the independent restaurant coalition and they had a lot of success. They got they. Have they have a bill that would cost one hundred twenty billion dollars which is a lot of money and the idea. Is that instead of trying to do it like ppp. You know the restaurant industry would be get money. Based on last year's revenues pre pre pandemic revenues and and believe it or not. The bill passed the house in october. Actually by quite quite a large margin it had more than fifty co sponsored in. The senate bipartisan but in the senate is run by one guy and his name is mitch mcconnell and he was more interested in that three martini lunch tax break which he claims. We'll help restaurants but no one in the restaurant. Industry seems to think it will make much difference at least not in a short term. I mean at the very least if people start flying again. They will need to go out for runs at their destination. But it's gonna be a long time before people really start flying in numbers again joe particularly since the vaccines aren't out there yet. So you know what is the thinking behind. This was going to thank the. There's two things going on here. the first is that that airlines You know they will be bringing people back to work. It's easier to give money to a large company that can do one thing that can bring fifteen thousand people back to work. They can bring twenty thousand people back to work. It's easier whereas You know giving money to restaurants is kind of a messy your proposition. Because they're all so. Many of them are so small. And it'll be you know there's that but the thing you have to remember about restaurants it's not just a place to eat. Every major city in the united states restaurants are at the core of vibrancy and their downtown area. And you know if you're going to build a new suburban area it's going to be built in large part around restaurants. I mean they play a hugely important role in the life of cities and so ignoring restaurants is really a dan damaging america's cities and. That's what breaks my heart about this more than anything else. So what's the i guess. The fate of the us restaurant. I if you will. I mean these. I'm going to call them. Individually owned mama. Pop if you will. But you know the the non chain owned restaurants. The numbers were seeing in not just new york city but a kind of across the country are staggering in terms of how many are likely have gone out of business are likely to go out of business. How bad is it going to get a hundred and ten thousand estimated to have gone out of business in the us. That's a lot you walked. I mean look. I'm a new yorker so i walked on the streets of new york city and you just see them closed up everywhere You know some of them will survive. There's certainly will. There are restaurants that will survive. There's there's no question about that. Some of them have learned to shift to take out Even even at the very high end i get. I get a notice from Daniel baalu who's one of the great chefs in america. Saying you know. Get get our christmas dinner for you. Know seventy five dollars will drop it off at your house that kind of thing so you know. Some restaurants will survive. But i think what you're going to see is that when the pandemic and and people can start going to restaurants again You'll see a lot fewer restaurants and it will take. I think generation for restaurants to build up to where they were just because there'll be so little capital left in the industry
What airlines, other industries got in $900B relief bill
"Is help for the airline industry in the pandemic release build again hasn't been signed yet by the president but is out there. Our next guest points this out, taxpayers are putting up almost $500,000 for each laid off airline worker to have three months of employment while cooks and waiters get nothing. In other words, airlines air outranking restaurants in relief money. Jonah Sarah Bloomberg opinion columnist joins us Now Joe did thought, go into this. Or was it a simple matter of the airline lobby being more powerful than the restaurant lobby? Well, they're barely is a restaurant lobby. Let's start there. Whereas airlines have been, um Taft up. You might want to say for many decades because airlines have had dealings with the federal government from that many decades between the FAA and, um You know, various various airline regulations and so on and so forth. So so you know you start there. I mean, restaurants are just is just defused. Organization. They're not large companies and even you know, restaurant chains. I mean, putting McDonald's aside, you know, in a city like New York, you know Danny Meyer. It was probably the best known restaurant tour in the city. You know, he has maybe 20 restaurants. And that just doesn't give them the clout that the airline industry has, even though they employ more people. And even though their people are really, really hurting, So, so this is a searing column by you kind of comparing and contrasting the airline industry with the restaurant business. So the restaurant's obviously it is a you know it, Z. It's a diffuse industry. Lots of independent operators historically has had not been a push to kind of organize better this industry that it's so important to many people's daily lives. Where there is a restaurant lobby of sorts, the National Restaurant Association, but it doesn't seem to have a lot of clout for whatever reason, um after the pandemic. After the first round of stimulus, the P P p program, there are a bunch of independent restaurant towards tried to start an organization called the Independent Restaurant Coalition. And they had a lot of success. They got they have they have a bill that would cost $120 billion, which is a lot of money, And the idea is that instead of trying to do it, like the P P p You know, the restaurant industry would get money based on last year's revenues, pre pre pandemic revenues. And believe it or not. The bill passed the house in October. Actually, by quite a quite a large margin, it had more than 50. Sponsors in the Senate, bipartisan But, you know The Senate is run by one guy, and his name is Mitch McConnell, and he was more interested in that three martini martini lunch tax break with he claims will help restaurants. But no one in the restaurant industry seems to think it'll make much difference, at least not in the short term. I mean, at the very least of people start flying again, they will need to go out restaurants at their destination. But it's really a long time before people really start flying in numbers again, Joe, particularly since you know the vaccines are into out there yet so You know what is the thinking behind this? It was thinking there's there's two things. There's two things going on here. Um, uh, The first is that airlines Um You know they will be bringing people back to work. It's easier to give money to a large company that could do one thing that can bring 15,000 people back to work thing. Bring 20,000 people back to work. It's easier, whereas you know, giving money to restaurants is that is a kind of a messier proposition because they're all so many of them and they're so small and it will be. You know, there's that, But the thing you have to remember about restaurants, it's not just a place to eat. Every major city in the United States. Restaurants are at the core. Of their vibrancy and their downtown area. And you know, if you're gonna build a new suburban area, it's going to be built in large part around restaurants. They player hugely important role. In the life of cities. And so ignoring restaurant is really a damn damaging America's cities, and that's what breaks my heart about this more than anything else. So, Joe. I mean, what's the guess? The fate of the U. S restaurant, if you will. I mean, you know these, I'm gonna call them individually owned Mama Pop if you will, but you know that the non chain owned Restaurants. The numbers were seeing and not just New York City, but a kind of across the country are staggering In terms of Harmony or likely have gone out of business are likely to go out of business. How bad is it? Gonna get right? 110,000 are estimated to have gone out of business in the U. S. That's a lot you walked. I mean, and look, I'm a New Yorker. So I walked down the streets in New York City, and you just see them closed up everywhere. Um, you know, some of them will survive. You know, there certainly were. There are restaurants. It'll survive. There's no question about that. Some of them have learned to shift to take out. Even even if the very high end I get I get notices from Daniel Balu, who is one of the great chefs in America. You know, get get our Christmas dinner for $75. We'll drop it off at your house. That kind of thing. So the you know, some restaurant restaurants will survive. But I think what you're gonna see Is that when the pandemic ends, and people can start going to restaurants again, um you'll see a lot fewer restaurants and it will take. I think a generation for restaurants to build up to where they were. This because they'll be so little capital left in the industry. Right? And and you know, as we've been saying all week if you've seen your restaurant closed down if you've had to lay off stuff If you've worked for years to build up a successful restaurant, do you really have the fortitude? Never mind the capital. Actually startle that whole process again. So, Joe, I was listening to Carl Drega Donna speaking with the guys a little earlier on today, and he was talking about his better stake a scattergun approach than a rifle approach. And I'm paraphrasing. But in a sense, this is a rifle approach. Right? As you said, you could re employ a lot of people. If you target just even one airline, where is targeting restaurants is more scattered on. It's definitely a lot more difficult to put together. Absolutely that 100% And I think that the P p p p p experience. Excuse me. The P T P experience has not Been all that satisfactory for Congress. I mean, so many so many, uh, cos got left left out. Somebody felt like you know, larger companies got money that didn't really need it and so on and so forth. So it's really hard to put together a program that would work. I mean, I do think that the program the restaurant industry put together would have worked if had if it had been tried, But of course, we'll never know because it didn't get tried.
"airline industries" Discussed on Daily Coronavirus Update
"While may help some caution. That tests aren't always reliable and fake negative test certificates are already making the rounds. Scott mccartney middle seat columnists at the wall street journal joins us for more. Thanks for joining us. Got to be with you oscar. What did it talk about some of the things that the airline industry is gearing up with to try to make air travel safe again and really just the ramp up the whole industry. They're counting on testing to make people feel safer during the pandemic. Obviously we have vaccines on the way. But that's still gonna take some time to roll out. So what are we seeing at. Airlines and airports were seeing testing sites at airports. Were seeing test results being on passenger records some places or even offering flights for people that have tested negative specifically so a lot of airlines are banking on this whole testing thing but there are some problems with it as well so scott tell us a little bit about it please. This is really a save. The industry push by airlines and destinations. Airports governments you know. A lot of businesses are involved in this and they really are desperate to restart travel and certainly a lot of travelers are desperate to start going again and so testing is seen as a way to make this happen. There's no real agreement yet on what the terms would be. If you will allow places are requiring a pcr tests seventy two hours in advance. Some places say no. It has to be five days in advance in some locations. There has to be a rapid test on at the airports. Italy is requiring both a rapid tests when you depart and when you arrive so no uniformity on that and it's really unclear how much this really reduces the it seems to reduce the risk but certainly doesn't eliminate it in hawaii has been a good test case. Hawaii has pretty stringent testing requirements in place. And they've been able to reopen travel with actually a reduction in cases in the state reduction in hospitalizations in the state. so they think it's working but otherwise. Why difficulty with it a hawaii just real quick. They do have very rigorous testing requirements. So much so that you have to get a specific kind of test. You have to do it with a certain company and people that are getting to the airport with the improper credentials. I guess you can say they're getting turned away. Even but the lieutenant governor there who is a doctor as advised on a lot of this stuff says that they think it's a great success as you mentioned they kinda reopened with numbers going down even and they think that being really strict about where you get the test done what lab processes that. They think that's been one of the keys to their success. Half the people a lotta people have gotten caught by that requirement about half of them have been turned away at the airport when they go to board a flight and the other half have shown up in hawaii and not been allowed to enter say. They quarantined and they've been very strict about their quarantining. They monitor you at a hotel and things like that. A lot of people are. They're getting tested at reputable labs. They're just not on. Hawaii's approved list. But i think the point for hawaii is there's a lot of stuff out there and if a test isn't done properly he'd take the sample incorrectly you get a bad result and they're at home tasks. There are all kinds of different ways to get tested and so there even fake test results. You can buy now. Yeah so there were seven. People arrested at the paris airport selling fakes. Negative covid test results. So i think if you're trying to protect the population and you're going to allow people to avoid quarantining with test results. You better make sure that the test results are not only accurate but trustworthy. Yeah those fake negative test. Results were being sold travelers from about one hundred eighty two dollars to three hundred sixty five dollars. I mean those are getting up there. Rivaling some ticket prices. I would assume no. It's not cheap at all. Some of the other things that airlines are trying to do is rollout apps also which will basically say your test came back negative that way everybody knows it. You can kind of show it. They're trying to work through some privacy issues with that and certain airlines are also offering flights for people specifically that were tested. And if you don't wanna be tested or something that they'll move to another flight the f. thing is interesting there you know. There's privacy concerns with it if you're gonna use it. You have to agree to sort of wave privacy requirements but it is a way to sort of get the information quickly easily into your passenger file. The cova tested flights are interesting. One of the keys to all of this is there was a flight from dubai to auckland new zealand which has been studied extensively by health authorities. Because were two people on board who probably were infected before the flight but they had tested negative with the pcr tests and you know they may have been infected after they took the test for before they got on the flight and they infected There were five others who got infected. And they're all sitting within two rows of each other on the flight so great concern about this. A lot of information about it because new zealand has mandatory quarantine in government runs facility for two weeks so they could easily contact trace these people and what it showed was negative test results. Do not mean that you're going to have a flight. That's free of the virus. Yeah it's always tough and and in that study real quick just to put a point on it. They were all sitting within two rows of each other and they were in. I ll seats so that was the other problem. A lot of air flow kind of going right through there if the viruses flying in the air. So i mean i. I hope the industry this in order you know. I want to fly. I want to travel again soon. And i just want you know. Hopefully everybody can do it as safely as possible.

Listen, I was flipping through the channels last night after work and ah was my MBA game on the TV. And they were showing the thank the benches on both of you Time out or something. There's showing the Ah Cartoon characters and the audience and also a few scattered audiences. So they hand out on the court. Ah, this was the 1st 20 seconds or so and had black lives matter printed on the court. I was wondering what your thoughts are about that and also are we gonna get to where it's going to be all football fields in college football field, professional sports. No. Yeah, it's gonna be everywhere. That's the thing and nobody disputes that black lives matter in the lower case, But black lives matter is a group is a Marxist organization and it it insinuates that black lives matter to the exclusion of everybody else's life. And that's just not the way it is. So all lives matter if you want to say black lives matter, too. Then that would be something else. But just to say black lives matter is an exclusive. Sounding thing to me, and I think that it's not very constructive. If you're worried that black lives matter, haven't mattered in the past and say, Hey, black lives matter, too. And we all go. Oh, yeah, We certainly agree with that. But just to say black lives matter in general. Is just stupid. Black lives matter don't matter than any other lives. For future. All right. I just want to know your thoughts about it. Thanks. Ah, lovely show. Thank you, Kim and buckle up, folks. This is going to be all over. This is this is sports everywhere, probably in the middle of the of the hockey rink or whatever they wanted. They skate on probably going to be in the ice. I mean, it's going to be everywhere. This is what they're doing, and its people go to sports to get away from all this stuff, and then there it is. I have no desire to have all this stuff crammed down my throat when I'm watching sports. So I will just forgo the sport. John, you're up next. John was up. Hey, Phil, How you doing? I'm dandy, John. I'm hunky Dorey. Good. Hey, I have a question for a would talk about the covert 19 vaccine. Years. Does anybody know what the ingredients are? I don't think he knows anything about it. I mean, I wanted I'm in. I'm in. I'm in very low risk of dying from this thing. So I don't see any sense in my getting a covert 19 vaccine. I mean, you know, I think if people are If you if you have a better chance of dying from Corona virus, and you do from a vaccine, then I would say Go get it, But otherwise I think most people would probably say no, No, thank you. Yeah, well, I just wanted because I know some of the greatest and for the flu shot contains them. Taysom items that are kind of dangerous, actually. Well, Yeah, well, that's what some people say. We don't know. That's may. I mean, You have gotten the flu shot a couple of times in my life, because one time my wife urging the time my doctor is with that thing ago. What are my chance of dying from the flu? Slim and none. So why am I getting a flu vaccine? I said Well, so you don't get the flu? I don't care about If I get the flu and you get the flu, you know, I mean, I've been I've been in this job. How long we've been here, Johnny. Since 2004. I think 2004. Okay. That's a long time but 16 years I've taken one sick day. That's it. And for many years I taken no sick days and then I finally had to think what I think it one sick day. Why don't I need a flu shot? I think the most experts if you tell him that how many times you've been sick in the last 16 years, something days you taking off one? Okay, Well, you probably don't need the flu shot. I mean, I'm just saying, I'm not. I'm not discouraging you from getting it, but that's the whole point. It's it's going to be a person to person decision. Do you think there's a bigger risk of you getting Corona virus and dying or getting a vaccine and dying? And right now there is virtually no chance. I'm going to die from Corona virus. So why would I get a vaccine? Let's see. They're going to mandated. Wait for that. That's coming. We'll be back after this information,.

They should have been sky CST area to iron. I think the problem skype is. It started off as a voice activated service, and then got bought by Microsoft, and since he's acquisition by Microsoft. It's just gone backwards to the point where one Microsoft executive last year at a conference pretty much dismissed the company, and said that all their efforts going into Microsoft. Teams so I think that. Even a Microsoft! If you want a product like zoom that probably GonNa, try and sell you a similar service three. Mike Sultans rather than skype. skype is really mixed on this one. Can It beat off challenges though like facebook, which is getting heavily into video conferencing, isn't it?

It's very easy to conference other than just clicking a link. They really take little or no information offi which can't be said for the this. So I?

I think part of the brain with these large companies is. facebook anything right eleven video cool, but you'll fully aware of how much data they have on your. You're fully aware the you've posted.

Where does it go from here? It continue that kind of rise. I think he can continue. I think they need to stop this. No sign of lockdown officially ending yet, obviously companies talking about getting back into offices, but Let's be realistic for most that probably Beatles. September overrun is. It might not even be till January next year, so. teleconferencing space is not going away anytime soon. The figures extraordinary h-share pies funny way is extraordinary as well I mean for instance it now has a market value of fifty nine billion US dollars, which is greater than the combined market bodies of all the four largest USA lines alive.

being discussed in the New York Post the fact that people are indeed afraid to fly thinking they're going to get sick and going to die how does the department transportation deal with these things well we are partners well thanks for having me on there be with you but but and also thanks for the opportunity to chat with your to your listeners and there I hear they're great they love you and they love to what you are telling them I don't know who paid you they did fine work ma'am really and truly blessed in part but with the question that you raised a very important one because the whole ministration is totally focused on ensuring public health and safety the number one there is a government wide task force Georgia department of transportation alone you know I have fifty employees who are devoted to working on this task force along with everybody else on the task force throughout the whole government and as your listeners and you have undoubtedly seen the president himself has taken out of a very visible role and communicating with the public about what is happening with this virus and the vice president had been put in charge and they are doing things every single day to communicate more accurate news about what's happening and also what needs to be done at the department of transportation I just met with the CEO of United Airlines yesterday who came in personally to talk to me about and there are flight and how they are reconfiguring their flight patterns and that's because United Airlines is the major carrier to Asia so they disproportionately affect them as they go to Asia and especially China did a major carrier there but we are watching the situation carefully I'm flying myself on Monday and Tuesday to Houston that I'm flying on Thursday and Friday to Jacksonville Florida so you know we want to take precautions but we also need to be careful that we are not hampering ourselves and carrying our our daily lives some of them you know some of the advice that you've been hearing about a very commonsensical this is a more severe type of flu and so we want people to be careful they need to wash their hands frequently they needing is there but there's no sanitizer they need to wash their hands frequently they probably should not try to shake hands use the pump you know all the the album we do that at the White House you know that is cordial way of greeting one another be careful about being near people who made display of flu symptoms and for people who are feeling ill you know take the benefit of the doubt be considerate of others and yourself and you don't go to work well this is part of your friends neighbors and colleagues as well this is part of the conversation talking Elaine Chao is that when you have to fly from point a to point B. you don't get to decide who your neighbors are and some neighbors are indeed inconsiderate and if we talk about airline travel certainly people will tell you in the anecdotal and that they feel that the plane is not as clean as it needs to be I've never been anywhere where more people white down more seats and then then on airplanes but the question I think remains for people because they feel odd that is unfounded or is there something that airlines can do physically do that can help prevent people from getting help because we all hear about people getting sick on a plane what airlines have you know they understand the fear and they don't want to lose passengers that's their customers they don't want to have passengers feel unsafe sold they know they have they have cleaning crews that come every after every flight before every flight and they're very conscious about keeping the planes clean but obviously after this conversation I'm going to go back to them again and tell them that this is what some of your listeners are talking about and feeling as though they need to do an extra better known better job making extra effort to communicate what they are doing to the public as well and also the department of transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration the FAA no we work closely with the center for disease control that CDC in Atlanta to provide health guidelines and protocols to airlines and air crew members to protect both passengers and crews while enabling again vital you know these continued airline operations let's take it to some of the regulations side if if if we could secretary Chao we have of course seen the White House president trump work aggressively on the removal of undue and unnecessary regulation and we have seen this in a host of places anytime we have to hire somebody as a business owner to handle the regulatory burden that somebody you're not hiring to help grow your business these regulation reductions how they played out in the department of transportation and how they played out how they trickle down to our lives here whether B. central Indiana with Abby Lincoln Nebraska or across the Midwest you know the president in February twenty seventeen signed an executive order to all of the departments and cabinets across the federal government and he said that every one regulation that each of the departments promulgates Cena implements we have to withdraw to regulation and so in fiscal year twenty eighteen but the department of transportation published twenty three D. regulatory rules and one significant regulation stating that taxpayer more than one point two billion dollars in regulatory costs contrast this with the previous administration which at the department of transportation a lone implemented more than three billion dollars in additional regular regulatory cost every year and that's what the economy wasn't taking off because the heavy burden avalanche of unnecessary burdensome regulations was hampering the economic growth so now the economy sweeping ahead unemployment rate of three point six percent seven million jobs have been created GDP growth we are isn't out of the upper two percentage of percentage points and you know it was said in the previous administration that less than two percent GDP growth is going to be the new normal that was the best were ever going to accomplish president bush get to that feeling so we are doing a lot to ensure the regulations that really means something that they're really relevant and effective we don't just issue regulations because we like regulations were very much aware that piling on effect we want to protect the traveling public insurance safety in a protected environment but it would is just unnecessary burdensome regulations that don't help Saito did example by permitting reform is another seventy regulations that we're looking at if you want to build a road or highway or airport it could take eight to eighteen years the average time is about twelve to fourteen years that's awfully long time to wait that also means with prolonged construction period the cost goes up the mid kasta materials call up labor goes out and the cost of the project increases while residents and citizens are unable to enjoy you know a better quality of life my productivity gains whatever so we basically took a look at our permitting process and there are so many things that needed to in a correction you asked for specific examples are given to you number one we can do studies simultaneously we don't have to do studies one after the other consecutively sequentially cell right now in a one mode of transportation within department have to look at something in a project the federal highways would have to take a look at something you know pipeline set to look at something research have to look at something and all the studies have to occur like actually no wires that they cannot conduct their studies at the same time and the same time number one number two sister agencies can't share their reports with one another now is that the silliest thing you've ever heard why should federal highway and not be able to share their reports on the same project with federal well rolled or federal transit with the same department we should be able to facilitate sharing of information sold commonsense reforms like that really can help to speed up the process because the president has something called one federal decision do you want to have raided a permitting reform to take place that will enable construction of project to occur much faster his goal is two years but that'll approval that's not to talk about state and local you know they've got a handle that on their own but two years of federal approval I was just Alaska and I just gave them a clearance on a and firemen to regulatory item it took thirty seven years as a sterling highway it took thirty seven years to get that approval that's just no disagreement from me is that the the amount of time things take and how things get delayed is ridiculous but if you before I let you go secretary Elaine Chao search engines were Tatian a qualified personal question not about you but about where I live in Indianapolis Indiana we have something here called the red line this is a boss system electric buses they did the same thing in Albuquerque New Mexico and what they found was that the buses which come from something called B. Y. D. which is a Chinese electric bus manufacturer didn't work up to snuff and they were replaced with diesel buses Indianapolis unfortunately tried the same exact system not to my liking by any stretch they have found that the buses don't work and they have now cancelled these bus orders and have gone to diesel buses part of the funding of course came from the federal government including two million dollars in are those tiger grants transportation investment generating economic recovery grants should US tax dollars given as grants to cities like Indianapolis for what D. Indianapolis determines other cities terminal infrastructure projects should those dollars then be turned around and purchase products from Chinese companies when they could be used to purchase products from American made companies very very hot topic right now in fact the title to the ministration and many members of Congress are dressing this questioning a difficult acting point so there's reason to a legislative via action under way we have no other legislative authority on that but clearly that is an issue so there's a lot there's again current legislative activity on this and you know we are we are guardians of the public trust we are to do sherry of taxpayers dollars and so we want to make sure that any project that has federal funding is proceeding on target in terms of dollars in on budget and also on schedule so that's our responsibility in seeing all of this and we don't we want to make sure that again taxpayer dollars are being used by the transportation department ever made a statement as to whether or not U. S. federal dollars should be used to purchase Chinese manufactured goods FTA is the federal transit administration again it is addressing this issue with the city's Zach is a secretary of transportation Elaine Chao who according to her you often come pretty cool and I think that's the big takeaway it's great to be on your show and and it's great to hear your voice and I can be able to talk to your listeners as well absolutely man's ex I thank you so very much for taking the time it's Jeannie progresses employee of the month to month in a row leave a message at the hi Jamie me Jamie I just had a new idea for our song what the name your price tool so when it's like tell us what you want to pay trombone was Bob wine you say well be fine coverage options to fit your budget then we just all the fingers now small choir goes even coming after they've come at jet yes no maybe anyway.

"airline industries" Discussed on The Journal.
"Last March. A seven thirty seven Max crashed in Ethiopia killing one hundred fifty seven people and shocking the world Regulators started grounding the plane and within days. The Max was completely out of the air. Boeing began working with authorities to figure out what happened and airlines also had to reckon with the fallout American airline CEO. Doug Parker said the company was ready to work closely with Boeing to get the planes back in the air. Your is your tragic events And what we care about is safety and we will work together as this industry always does to ensure that safety. He's number one focus. But at the same time American Airlines and other carriers needed to figure out how to cope with grounding of the Max while still operating their businesses Mrs it was really something of a scramble for them to figure out what to do. Reporter Alley cider covers the aviation industry industry. They looked at what would be the least disruptive way to cut flights the Max mostly flew between the New York area and Miami. You you know that's where most of the Max's were being used. Obviously Kansas stop flying between the Florida so they had to kind of spread it out and look at their network and look okay. We're flights that we we have multiple frequencies a day where we could cut one. So we're not just ending travel between two cities trimming a couple of frequencies looked at long haul flights where you can cancel one long haul flight instead of a bunch of short flights where you've suddenly inconvenienced a lot of people. At the time of the grounding. You had people who were already scheduled to travel in. Their plans. Had to be sort of offended at the last minute you know. We talked to passengers who were sort of already on vacation. And then they get a call from their airline airline that says actually your flight home has been cancelled. Then we've re booked you and maybe on a flight that's not on the day. He wanted to travel or has a stopover when he wanted to direct act. Can you tell me what all of this flight rescheduling looked like so most of the stuff they do software. A lot of it is automated. And they're still using using that software you know they're not just like using crayons and colored pencils on a big map of the US or the world but there is a lot of thoughts and analysis and expertise expertise that has to go into figuring out. What's the best way or the least inconvenient way to basically redraw so I spoke to Vasu Raja? He works the network planning at American Airlines. And from what you told me there is a lot of late nights like imagining correctly. Like people at the office office really laid and lots of empty pizza boxes and he said yeah pretty much and all. This scrambling wasn't just causing headaches and late nights for the planning team. Once they make a decision about their network is sort of ripples throughout the company there's people on Revenue Management hoped to decide what the availability should be in making sure to keep some mhm seats open so anyone. Who's Max flight got canceled? You know has the place to go. You know they tell everyone. Don't worry you'll get an email if your schedule has been changed but if you're worried about your vacation you're definitely going to call so they have to staff up on customer service and make sure there are people there to answer those calls and explain the situation so it really is this huge logistical challenge talents. That kind of ripples throughout the airline at the time I think there was a sense that could be pretty temporary but that delay would not be temporary as the Federal Aviation Administration investigated. Boeing's Max Fleet. They uncovered more and more safety concerns. I think what initially seem to some some people like it would be a pretty straightforward fixed. That could be done. Relatively quickly started to just take longer and longer as new issues were discovered and just amid a heightened scrutiny by the FAA but also regulators all over the world. You know bullying was saying it was going to provide all this information to regulators to take a look at and that kind of kept getting pushed back again and again and you know the process just kind of kept getting delayed over and over again regulators flagged problems with pilot training emergency safety st procedures and some of the planes software and as the safety inquiry stretched. On for months Boeing's estimate on the Max would return to service kept moving back I Boeing pushed it into the summer of twenty nineteen and then bowing pushed back again until the end of the year. With each month that the Max's return was delayed. American Airlines had to go into scramble mode all over again canceling more flights. They're kind of just on the receiving and here you know all they can do is wait for Boeing and the FAA to work out the process. And there's really not a lot they can do to speed things along and airlines have to make decisions decisions about the Max you know way before they really having clarity about what's going on with the Max. They have to decide over two months like seventy days before her their schedule. That's when they really have to finalize things so they can get their flight attendants in their pilots scheduled beyond that point just gets harder and harder to make changes. So you know. They've had to kind of looking to the future and think. How likely is it that the Max is going to be back? And allie says the ongoing wing uncertainty put Americans growth plans on hold. It wasn't flying the twenty four Max planes. It had and it wouldn't be getting the sixteen more it had ordered for the rest of the year. American patients with Boeing was wearing thin. The airlines have gotten pretty frustrated with the number of delays that they've seen You know I don't want to suggest that they want to rush the process along but I think you know they're just unhappy with the way. Expectations have been managed. And just how long this has gone on. Those mismanaged edged expectations were costing American and it wanted bowing to pay.

Delays in the safety assessment of the seven thirty seven MACs were piling up and American Airlines was juggling the fallout its pilots were upset because they we're losing money and peak. Holiday travel was on the horizon in an October investor. Call American CEO. Doug Parker expressed his aggravation with Boeing. They believe the F. B. certified in or quarter. It's probably best. It's that information is best case given what we've all seen. Ah over the over the course of this process so we're prostrate bullying American have been in touch throughout the year. You know American American and other airlines have made it clear that they don't believe they should be on the hook financially for this That they're expecting bowing to make them whole James extended grounding her customers or members enter. Cheryl's we're working to ensure that Boeing shareholders bear the cost of Boeing's failures not American Airlines American Airlines basically said they believed the grounding would result in a five hundred and forty million dollar reduction their full year or twenty nineteen and profits. So that's pretty significant and it's like a big step up from what they thought originally like in the first effort their first quarter earnings. They were predicting a three hundred. Fifty million dollar impact so it's been much more expensive than they were anticipating on. That call Parker said that American was in talks with Boeing about compensating. The airline for about five hundred forty million dollar hit and last week. American said it reached a settlement with Boeing for an undisclosed amount but that deal just applies applies to two thousand nineteen and the Max grounding is still ongoing meaning American Airlines is facing more costs twenty twenty. Where does this leave? American Airlines going into twenty twenty so going into two thousand twenty American Airlines has said that getting the Max flying again. It's sort of one of the biggest I think it needs to do to get on track. American is currently planning for the Max to return by June more than a year after the initial grounding but even even if the Max is clear to fly all the headaches and additional costs for American will be far from over for one thing. It'll take weeks of maintenance to get the planes ready to fly I again after they sat on the ground for more than a year. And then there's the issue of flight simulator training. I think the biggest thing in terms of time and money is that recently. It's starting to become more and more likely it sounds stats pilots. Who need to go through some kind of training before? They're allowed to fly the Mexican. Why would it pose such a high cost for American Airlines pilots would need to go through this training so first of all it was unexpected? It's not really budgeted time time for a simulator. It's just in one place so all the pilots have to come from wherever they're based all around the country and spend time in it. Can you describe bribe. What a flight simulator is like? What does it look like? They kind of look like Like in Star Wars those like like robots on skinny long legs that kind of what are they called At yeah that's sort of what they look like. Yeah Yeah I just googled it to me. That's what they look like. I'M GONNA get a lot of trouble with like a lot of people who are really knowledgeable trouble about aviation. Who aren't going to be like? No that's not what they look like so like a full motion flight simulator. They're sophisticated piece of equipment and they're very expensive and the process of getting everyone to wear the simulator is and scheduling them all for time in the simulator. You know it's just a big another logistical challenge. You know after a year. That's been full of challenges. Do you have a sense. That American Airlines is okay with some of this this delay because it's so much needs the restoration of customer confidence. I do think that safety is the highest priority for the airlines. Sort sort of making sure that everyone is confident in the plane is their top priority so they are planning to do a lot you know. There will likely be a period between when regulators liters allowed the plane to fly again and when it enters commercial service. And they're planning to sort of do as much as they can to put.

"Occurred first in the airline industry down to the the big four we had a lot of consolidation which occurred in military aviation get a handful of people doing that now and now it looks like we're seeing even more consolidation among these airframe receiving on the low end just a week or two ago a doctor turboprop proper complete baltic quest another turboprop company here in the united states so i dunno this just looks to me like we're getting more and more consolidation among the you know the framers is well yes in the in the barrier to entry is is so high hi that you really can't expect anybody to come in at least as a competitor to the boeing and airbus is of the world i mean you know the coal mac is trying that in china the the russians would like to do the same that's been taking place for a good number of years in a properly with many more to go before that's even you know a little successful but it just costs so much to a to come in and start they compete now that's not to say that there could be some other kind of a game changer that might come in i mean just since we've been talking about supersonic aaron boom if somehow the the supersonic a boom issue was completely solved and so we could fly supersonic everywhere and they a company like boom having been been in there you know early could come in and steal business from a what would have been the you know the legacy kinds of oh we ams year framers i dunno it just it seems unlikely a but that's see only condition where i could see there ever being any real competition for her boeing and airbus now something completely different and what they do it you know somebody takes advantage of and those guys don't agree i think a new new technologies do markets certainly a place for a new company get their foot in the door other dynamic that might change things just a little bit will be the you know the the continually difficulties seven three seven max is causing for for boeing and this may open the door perhaps a little bit more for the komax of the world and in a good looking at this way i you know there were certainly has been a us a somewhat of a drop in orders for a boeing as i'm sure all the airlines trying to leverage the situation as best as possible but long term this did hurt boeing eventually people are not gonna be one airlines you're not gonna wanna be stuck with just airbus and you know in a in a week boeing they're gonna need you know another foil another third a you air framer to bet against each other and so on so you know depends if boeing recovers fully from this long term you know no issue of for some reason they become a highly adamus from this long term while that does kind of open the door a little bit but a back the boom i think that even though they're you know they're they're they're getting themselves in in this new area i think there'll be the perfect acquisition camp date in seventeen years fight you know who knows you know i would i would expect frankly that somebody they will be the boom division of a bowling corporation that i think you're you're you may be right there certainly a boeing or airbus or you know something of that size could could acquire acquire booming if there's a turning out to be you know successful unprofitable but said you know with a good future h and expect someone like going to try to bring bring them into the fold and i forgot ass did did you did you did are ordering 'cause i know we were talking about getting the airplane geeks a boom you know jet so that we could take her listeners around the country did did you place your yet they just wanna know free free free just one aircraft and figured out we're gonna base that on the east coast west coast while i guess it doesn't matter 'cause you could get to the right you got about sixty minutes so really matter that's right reposition it occasionally yeah you could come pick me up for lunch and there'd be back in time for you i'm good afternoon snack.

"We don't recommend that you do it either. And we don't invest in sub industries like the cannabis industry. That's what marijuana's all about companies that we own in the funds that we own for our clients do sometimes invest in the cannabis industry. So we get exposure that way for the benefit of our clients, but we are not buying individual cannabis stocks. And we don't recommend that you do it either. If you insist on investing in cannabis stocks recognize. Is that it's highly speculative, nobody knows if it's a fad or a trend, and so therefore if you're going to do it limit your exposure to one percent, maybe two percent of your portfolio recognize there is substantial political risk. Nobody knows by the way, which cannabis stocks are going to in fact proved to be successful. And let me just illustrate this for you. I'm going to ask you a real simple question is the airline industry for real. Is the airline business here to stay? It's a silly question. Of course, it is. But if you had invested in the nineteen sixties in eastern or Pan Am if you had invested in the seventies and braniff, you see my point even though the industry may survive and thrive doesn't mean the individual players in that industry are going to do. So back in nineteen ten there were two hundred automobile manufacturers in the United States today. There's three so just because you might be right thematically that cannabis is here to stay doesn't mean that you're capable of picking the companies that are going to be the ones that win. And therefore if you're going to put one percent of your assets and cannabis you need to be prepared to lose it all so if you have questions about your investing style, if you're wondering whether you should jump into marijuana stocks and cash in on this. Cannabis opportunity talk with us. I make sure that you understand the risks. Make sure you understand the implications of your investment decision.
