Breakthrough cases aren't unexpected because like with any vaccine. It's not a hundred percent effective at preventing a person from getting sick but scientists are worried. Is that one day vaccine. Efficacy is going to drop even lower and even though our vaccines are currently working well to prevent hospitalizations we are seeing concerning evidence of waning vaccine effectiveness over time and against the delta vary. So what we're seeing is a very time dependent slope where the longer ago you were vaccinated. The less effective. Your vaccine is right which leads us to today right. So the fda having this big hearing what is the purpose of it like what does the question that these folks are going to be here to answer so today. There's going to be an fda hearing it's actually the fda's independent advisory committee is. Is this vaccine not doing what it's supposed to do.

"How did they go about that process. Basically it was all hands on deck. They told one person all right. Organize five hundred meals for the next few days. They told another person. Hey we need to charter. Flights one for the players and all the staff members and one for their families. They called the players in and they said go. Gather your things. Gather your kids your family members if you wanna take your sister-in-law your mother-in-law whoever needs to be with you bring them and we will get them on this plane and then obviously they had to go secure a hotel which is never easy in the first place for a typical. Nfl game. but you're talking. Two hundred eighty people in some players and their families needed more than one room and not only that they needed buses to go to and from the airport in new orleans to and from the airport and dallas and then to practice every day. They've taken their operation on the road before many times. But they haven't had something of this quickness in this magnitude probably since hurricane katrina in two thousand five and catherine you also wrote about a pretty unique situation that the saints faced when they were trying to charter a flight. Can you tell us about that. So the saints usually charter flights from united to go to and from their away games during the season so that was the first company they called and it was not easy for a couple of reasons because one they had to convince united to fly their planes into the direction of a hurricane and then they had a really interesting and unique problem in that the united fleet or a large portion of the united fleet is being used by the government to transport refugees. Afghanistan order the commercial airlines. We're talking the ones you fly everyday. American delta united a hawaiian airlines and others eighteen of their aircraft will be called into service to actually fly american evacuees as well as afghan allies being bright out of the country so they didn't have the amount of available planes that they normally have around four pm the time that the saints took off. They were cancelling flights left and right. They're actually people stranded up in new orleans airport because they could not get a flight out of the city on saturday and sunday. Saints general manager. Mickey loomis who actually is one of the few holdovers from hurricane katrina as one of the only things that he worked about. He says he remembers sitting there and thinking. I just hope the plane comes into. What was this sudden decision to move out of new orleans like for some of the players on the team and their family members would have some of them had to say about that experience. It was a stressful time for a lot of them. A saint's linebacker tomorrow. Davis has a pregnant wife. Who's doing october. My wife is due october. Two seven and so. How far can she fly or how close she to what she can't. She's a no-fly zone but also we have family mississippi. Both parents they mississippi. So you know. Was it load up and send in to mississippi. Oh was it. bring them with me. Sometimes hurricanes do take a turn and their path is a little different than originally anticipated. So you don't always know if you're about to put someone in harm's way. And then cam jordan also brought his children in his way and he flew back to new orleans for a day. And you didn't have power. You didn't have a generator and you know. He had damaged as well. The greatest thing that i can hold is that my family is safe. I know for sure from the pictures. I've seen this morning. Our house is gonna need some immediate attention but as materialistic. I can say we're all in good health. We were saying for the storm. I think that all of the saints players and staff understand that as far as their situation goes it is a lot better than than the situation of many new orleans so they've been sure to reiterate we don't we don't have it bad. We're staying in a hotel. We're taking care of for so many other people you know. I've had friends that that. Try to drive memphis to houston to the surrounding areas.

"Have already started furloughing tens of thousands of employees. Let's bring in here and now transportation analyst Seth Kaplan. Set, the White House said today it will begin discussing potential standalone relief bills, including one for the airline industry. Do we know what's being talked about? And would it be enough to stop these furloughs at the airlines? Well, President, Trump indicated in his tweet that he would support the $25 billion in aid that airlines were asking for are obviously we don't know yet what a new deal would look like. But the deal there was that they would get all that money in exchange for not following those workers for another long period of time here, just like they did the first time, so that's presumably what this deal would look like. Two. If it's something like that airlines getting a whole lot of aid in exchange for Not furloughing employees, something short of that they would probably take the position that is not enough to avoid the furloughs. Well, and it's not just for lows. The airlines have been having to deal with a lot because of the pandemic checkpoint. Data from the Transportation Security Administration shows there hasn't been a day with a million air travelers since March. And the Big U. S. Airlines. United, American Delta and Southwest have been relying less on routes in and out of there major hubs to make up for that. What else have they been doing to adapt? Yeah, for perspective, As he said, not a million travelers. A typical day would be somewhere between two and three million. In normal times, a quiet day would be two million. Now a busy day is less than one million. A cz You said cutting flights at hubs, and this is interesting kind of reversing the trend. In recent years, a lot of airlines had sort of been retreating to their Hubbs. There's network airlines focusing on those monster hubs like Atlanta. Now they're trying to adapt to where? What little demand that there is is by which I mean leisure demand, not auto business travel, not a lot of conferences. But if the price is right people still we'll get out of flights to Florida leisure destinations like that. And so some of these airlines are flying point to point flights over flying as they call it those hubs. Between cities where the people are originating to the places where they want to go. And we're not talking not just about the leisure airlines like spirit that often do that kind of thing. And what about international United is restarting nonstop service to China, With four weekly Friday flights from San Francisco to Shanghai. They're also resuming flights to at least 30 international destinations in November. Is anyone going to buy tickets for those if Corona virus is still out of control? Well, somebody will, and that's what this is about. You know, If you go back to April, it was almost literally true to say nobody wanted to fly now, no question to me and this far, far lower than where it was. But there's a certain level of demand. There are people everywhere who need to travel between the US and China. So if airlines air flying just a fraction of what they used to fly, even though just a fraction of the people, you start a fire flying, they can fill those flights similar to Jerry's, and people mentioned to me, you know, they've looked at Thanksgiving flights and fairs are surprisingly high. People say wire fears. I have almost nobody wants to travel in the answer there, too, is well, yeah, I mean, there's still question Thanksgiving is going to be very quiet compared to a normal Thanksgiving. But if airlines also just fly a lot less than supply demand, economics tells you that you can get back to where affairs are surprisingly.

"Airlines is eliminating change fees for customers who booked change or cancel their travel plans for tickets purchased for travel within the U. S. It comes shortly after United permanently dropped its change fees for domestic flights. Are we seeing a price war? Delta's CEO at bashed and telling CNBC no. They just need bodies on planes. I wouldn't call it a price war We announced late last year at our investor day that we were re examining all of our customer policies. The particular I am eliminating those that we're seeing by our customers as punitive. And I mentioned that also when I when I spoke to see yes earlier this year, so this's a path we were on. I think it's the right move by United and we're pleased to confirm that we're staying on the path that will be eliminating those who have eliminated those since they don't know they're not inspect currently and won't be coming back into effect. Once we get outside this year, they won't ever come back. And I mean, how long is that promise? Once we're into 2020 were a limit work. I'm sorry to be clear. We're eliminating them. They're not in effect currently. And when the period of time that they we had already previously announced they weren't going to come in effect. They're not coming back into effect next year, so they're effectively eliminated from this point forward. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said that they're looking at drafting an executive order that would prevent more airline layoffs or furloughs to get money to the airlines. What can you tell us about that? Have you had conversations about it with the White House? Cause you know, Sarah, the first cares Act was really successful for the industry. It held all the jobs for people gave us time to get our bearings following the pandemic in the initial days of it. And as we're coming up on the end of the first cares Act period as September 30th. It'd be a great opportunity across not just the White House that administration across The across the hill to ensure that their line workersjobs are protected for the next six months and, in turn, continue with the payroll support assistance that they provided us the first extension. I don't know the whether it's going to be in the form of an executive order or legislation or if it happens at all, but certainly anything that is put in place to protect workers jobs on the support of 30 days left dead until that moment is reached. Are you planning for the worst on if if that does materialized, What does it mean for the Delta? How many laughs? Well, we don't know if it's gonna happen, so we have to Assume it's not gonna happen. And then if it does happen, we'll hold course correct. The only work group right now that we believe we would have for lows in would be. Unfortunately, our pilots were working with them, hoping to avoid them. Meanwhile, people have been barking at buying tickets during the pandemic.

I have really enjoyed the hand. Flying Aspects of the expressway visual approach approach to runway three one is is a pilot favorite because we really have to hone your skills and operate the airplane in an old school way but still clearly in a safe manner but in terms of operating operating which airport I don't like operating into that's tough. I don't know if I have nothing really comes to mind right away. I might say the Detroit operation can be sometimes a little a bit frustrating from the pilots side mostly due to the delta ramp operations over the McNamara terminal on the south end of a gates right around the <unk> Alpha one two and three. There's about three different ramp frequencies that we have to contact for Oh.

"Or even today. I guess if you buy an ally, I didn't know what happens today, I'm very confused about how how ticketing today but the day when people buying Ellen tickets travel agencies. There was a huge degree of passively. The Ellen's didn't really know who was sitting in those seats with those tickets and had no ability to communicate with those individuals directly and the idea of a frequent flyer on. But was that the travel agent would just like right down the frequent flyer number along with the ticketing request. Or maybe it would happen. The gay. And then that would allow the headline to know exactly who was in that seat and to communicate with that person directly in the way that they weren't able to do hitherto. There's also another story that's tied to this this opacity that you're talking about in that is in the in the initial reservation systems. The airlines did not know what fair was paid by the customer when a book through a travel agent. They eventually did know probably weeks or months later when the actual paper ticket was processed that that process was called revenue accounting, and so very bizarre in complicated. Art, so why we have miles is testimony to that difficulty of capturing what the customer hit paid for the ticket. So the airline said, you know, when someone books reservation originally, we did not know what they paid in. They said, well, what do we know about them? Well, we know where they get on the airplane. We know where they get off. Oh, what's that tied to let's tied two miles. And so that's why we have miles for frequent flyer programs as opposed to points. And if you look at you know, the rest of the world into of loyalty, it's always based upon spend. It's only in the airline business that we have this rather bizarre situation in which it's based upon distance which today bears little resemblance to the value that customer have to the airline. Wow. This atavistic kind of holdover from from the days when everything had to get reconciled with pieces of paper. That's why we still talk about Ellen miles. And that's why people still think in terms of miles. Yeah. Yeah. And it's and it's and it's it the the system we believe that the system's going to eventually change to a revenue base system. What happens at many early? Today is very clunky. And one of the one of the most important things about a loyalty program is that when a meme when a member a member should know what their behavior world yield in terms of benefit. And if you go into a Starbucks, you use your your loyalty card, you have an idea of what the payback is in the airline business. It has become so Opik in terms of in in it, really reduces the loyalty effect, and that is you know, what you what you accrue. From a flight is tied to the booking class is tied to the distance is tied to multiple different things. So the airline industry over the course of time has tried to make this mileage based system more reflect the cash paid by customer in the in in doing so has really created a mess of it in. So you have programs such as southwest or JetBlue that clearly tie a cruel to the amount of money. Money spent by the customer and even with American delta United. Now, you see that a cruel is tied to what you're spending on the airline. So we believe at the the the rest of the world is going to eventually adopt us method of basing a cruel upon spending. Which then of course, removes emit with then it begs the question, why are these things called miles anymore and eventually that too will change? So that's the perfect segue for us to get into the other great way of accumulating mile, which is just using your credit card to pay for groceries. We'll come back to that. In a second. I started doing this. And I would talk about climate change. It was like another subject geology hydrology meteorology in it was well received and then at some point a politicized. What made climate change political was the most comprehensive longest running propaganda campaign in US history..

Working with these programs because they can be so so very creative creative. I like that would it's it's you know, I feel like creative is one of those words which which ACLU's multiple a multitude of sins, but I wanna get into into this idea. So I think I glance people look at what you call loyalty program and go well, yes loyalty program. What happens is if I use your product, if I if I fly on your airline a lot you'll give me little, you know, points these magical little things if I cumulative enough points, then that will get me status and upgrades and free flights and make me feel special, and and, you know, get me on the plane earlier, and all of these other wonderful things and that it will turn into a kind of edge cycle web points. Beget loyalty in loyalty, begets points. And then I just wind up flying on you. Your airline to the exclusion as much as I can anybody else's Ellen. And it just kind of works in a closed loop between the airline and the passenger is that how they started or they always really thought of as more of an actual financial profit center. I I don't think you need me for the show. I think he's nicely capsulated. What these programs are all about they you know, they've been around for more than thirty years. And they were originally designed to be nothing like what they are today. The very first programs were in the US and American delta United were among the first to to offer frequent flyer program, and they were offered by vacation. And they were only offered to those who had the the most amount of flying. And the reward structure was very similar of was very simple. It was only first class seats because. The airlines realized that they had excess capacity and first class in there is no capacity control. So if there is a first class seat available Uganda and eventually the programs grew in complexity in size where the did add economy class, but the big game changer for frequent flyer programs was the arrival of was the marriage of of credit card activity with a frequent flyer program. So give us some dates here. When did these things when do they move into Konami class? And then when did they become financialised thirty plus years ago these programs started, and then probably I would imagine twenty five years ago, the first credit cards began to show up, and that really changed the the financials of well, it, no it hit hit remade. Forever remade the financial relationships for these frequent flyer programs when when I consult with my airline clients. I I say the strongest the best programs. Are designed to rest on three on a three legged stool in the three legs are communication the loyalty effect in the cash generated by the program. The loyalty effect is what you've talked about ready..

Blue book blue streak. Thomas. It's so significant that jet blue would be charged with the first check back because I think it's always stood upon a little bit from American delta United, whomever precise it. Yeah. That's that's really what sort of was there. Impetus to start up in. Well, almost twenty years ago was we are sort of the anti airline. You know, at that point is the big airlines, and they were bad, and they were just the didn't care about the customer. So they staked out that territory.

I wanna talk about something else on planes, Catherine talk to me about I think I'm going to say something quite controversial. But the emotional support animal rackets, I comp believe has gone on as long as it has. This was the year the people finally wound to allow to say that pet parrots was there to stop them. Trying to open the emergency door. During flight, right? Well, some airlines will still let you bring a parent on..
