Finally, Airlines are Dropping Change Fees
"Wars daily on this September fourth. Happy Friday friends and happy. Labor. Day. Weekend. Labor, day, marks the end of summer for many of us an occasion for one last Hurrah barbecues pool parties in one last long weekend vacation perhaps this year well, most of us are staying home and the airlines have absolutely nothing to celebrate. Passenger levels are down seventy percent from a year ago, according to figures from the Transportation Security Administration looking financial disaster in the face, the airlines are trying to woo travelers back given the safety concerns that's proving difficult. So on Monday, United Airline CEO Scott Kirby took a startling and many would say welcome step here he is in a video announcement. Permanently getting rid of change vs on standard economy and premium tickets for travel within the US. Changes inevitable these days, but it's how we respond to change. That matters most. We hear from customers about where we can improve getting rid of this feat is often offered West and for good reason until now it could set you back two hundred to five hundred dollars to change a flight on one of the Big Three Airlines, United Delta or American sometimes that fee was more than the cost the original ticket simply the existence of that fee put all three airlines at a competitive disadvantage. To Southwest Airlines, which proudly boasts that it has never charge change fees or baggage fees, either which is another story well, now, non of the other airlines will either at least for domestic flights about twenty four hours after Kirby went public. American Airlines and Delta followed suit and canceled their domestic change fees as the Wall Street reports American went even further canceling their change fees for international flights to Canada Mexico, and the. Caribbean. Now, the question is, what will it cost them? US carriers earned close to three billion dollars from changing cancellation fees in two thousand, nineteen according to the US Transportation Department. All three major airlines in hefty amounts of money. American was I with more than eight, hundred, million dollars coming from vs Delta was close behind united took in more than six hundred, million dollars one might imagine that it could be hard for. The airlines to give up these fees after all about fifteen percent of their revenues come from the fact did travelers changed their minds united is burning through about forty million dollars a day and could cut up to thirty six thousand jobs by October first that according to CNBC. So you might think that every possible penny counts but if no one traveling anyway, well, it's
United scraps ticket change fees
"The most hated of all airline fees. Is the fee your charge to change your ticket? And never more than right now during corona virus where if somebody books a ticket to travel somewhere, they may later say, ooh, I really don't feel comfortable going. And that's why. The nation's airlines have followed the longstanding policy of South West. With. asterisks where you can buy a ticket now. On. Any US, airline and under Their straightjacket conditions. You don't lose the money. If you choose not to take the flight, you just gotTa meet all the rules jump through the right hoops and all that. But the reality is. Bit Airlines have only looked at what they make from change fees rather than how much business they ultimately don't get because they have changed fees in the first place. Let me explain. So I. Fly a lot on south. West Airlines. Until this year when I'm not flying anywhere because I'm in. Quarantine. Because a pre existing anyway. So I would fly typically in a year. I would take somewhere twenty five to thirty trips a year. Right, now I'm taking zero. So. I had a trip that I talked about. On the show last fall that change five times before I took it and I talked about how on the big three full fare airlines American united and Delta. I would have paid a thousand dollars and change fees before I ever left the ground. But because that was a ticket on south, west at paid zero in change fees. And so it's always been competitive market advantage for South West that they don't charge change fees that other airlines do. Well now, United Airlines. Has announced that they are eliminating change fees. Not Related to corona, virus, just eliminating change fees. On. All their airfares for domestic travel except. Basic economy basic economy is the one where we hate you but we'll take your money and let you fly. That has a long list of don'ts. And all that with basic economy, they have basic economy at the airlines so that their fares look lower. Than they really are. But anyway. As on United. Or going to have no change reason that this is something that upfront looks gutsy on United's part. Because according to the fads united collects over six, hundred, million dollars a year that goes straight to profit. From the change fee junk fee because the reality is. The cost for an airline somebody changing a flight. If any is just a couple of pennies. There's really no cost to the airline is just a junk fee. And so United's walking away from fifty million dollars a month. and. What they're not GONNA get in change fees but what they may well find. Is that people are more likely to book a ticket. Knowing that they can change it later without having to pay pay change fee. Now, we'll see over the course of this week. If The. Other two full fare airlines. American Delta. Follow United because often the three full fare airlines pretty much act like tweedle dee tweedle dum on what they do in terms of junk fees and nuisance fees and all that, and so we'll see and this will. Potentially. Erode. A huge market advantage four southwest airlines if airlines just blanket. Eliminate pretty much all the fares that are subject to junk fees united did not do so for international flights, but most people fly only domestic. So it it's not as much an issue for most people but. This is a very positive change. And I think back. That the junk fee for changing a flight for a long time was twenty five dollars. And then over the years the full fare ions got more more greedy kept raising it to the ridiculous two hundred dollar point and as travel writers pointed out repeatedly. Two hundred dollars change fee in most cases is higher than the fair bid a leisure travel or paid for their ticket in the first place.

Airline Layoffs and Furloughs
"We see in the Motley fool that southwest airlines they say has another ominous warning for airlines. And I. Guess Southwest Airlines has never had an involuntary layoff or a furlough, but Max. That might change this year. It's really quite a record that they have. That's really remarkable I. think what it really is a testimony to the tremendous amount of growth year on year that they've had for so many years in a row that they've been able to do that because that's that's got to be unique in the the industry but it does talk about how they originally had a fairly aggressive plan to get their schedule back to position whereby November December of this year they'd be at the same levels where they were a year ago. Well, that seems like that was probably a little overly mystic, and so they're finally recognizing that and. Notifying employees that you know layoff may be in the cards. Fact I believe. They had said that in order for them to avoid layoffs that traffic volume would have to triple from where it is currently and so the odds of that seems pretty unlikely. If you look at where traffic is I guess in the most recent period. They say that they were at about twenty seven percent of what they were a year ago. Now I. I just saw an article come out a day or so ago, which said that traffic has been steadily increasing since April up until this past week when it was down four percent so I i. think we're probably at best word. A new plateau at worst traffic is probably going back down again now. This article being from the Motley Fool. They have to talk about stocks the very end. They say ten stocks. We like better than South West, airlines. I'm thinking Probably the airlines are. Probably. Not In the top ten in sectors that you WANNA be investing in right now, but maybe I mean. Maybe they're depressed so low that they could bounce back, but I have breaking news. Yes, this is from NBC today this morning actually. Nearly seventeen thousand South West employees sign up for buyouts or voluntary leaves as furlough threat looms. They got more people buying out and retiring than they were expecting, so they're external looking to. Twenty percent of Southwest Airlines, were for signed up for partially paid extended leaves of absence were outright buyouts, according to Gary Kelly nearly four thousand. Put Your hands up for buyouts were close to twelve, thousand, five hundred expect in extended time off so. They're doing better than they were expecting for South West given given this this news coming out today. Yeah, and it's reported that seventeen thousand represents roughly twenty eight percent of the South West workforce. And there was another a bit of news from. Delta today. as we record this on Monday Delta. Says that two, thousand, two, hundred, thirty, five Delta pilots accepted an early departure package of of one sort or another. so. Yeah I. think that you know when when we see. The Airlines talking about possibilities here of of these layoffs they really are encouraging employees to accept the you know the package and there are wide wide variety of packages out there. Early retirement extended leave at reduced rates I mean there's all all manner of flavors of these things.
Dallas - Nearly 30% Of Southwest Airlines Workers Opt To Take Extended Leave Or Early Retirement
"Mohr than 1/4 of all Southwest Airlines employees have volunteered to take buyouts and extended leaves of absence as the Dallas based carrier tries to avoid furloughs due to the Cova 19 crisis.

New York, New Jersey and Connecticut require travelers from Florida and other states with high coronavirus rates to quarantine for two weeks
"Start with a big move from New York New Jersey and Connecticut calling tonight for a fourteen day quarantine for anyone coming in from high risk states, including the state of Florida that state's chief financial officer is Jimmy. Petronas, he's with us. Live tonight to respond Mr Petronas. It's good to have you. Thanks for being here. Got, what what is your response to what these states announced today? Those states are just you know unfortunately in the throes of some of the worst economic times in their history. You know if they feel like they've got a problem they afforded coming to visit the only solution. They've got into quarantine to keep people in the state for fourteen days, so in the case of of the decision that they're making it then it's unfortunate for them. It's unfortunate, but their economy, but they've got bigger. Prom solved and keeping flirting their state. Nobody's moving their. Hundred people a day or moving to the state of Florida Rico think. How is it any different? Though than what your governor governor descent announced back in March when he had the same requirement for people from New, York New Jersey Tristate area, coming down to Florida which by the way said saved lives. How's it any different than what your own governor did? Well, I think there was definitely a hot spot in the concentration that took place from new. York highly concentrated where there are like that. Go every day in the tune southwest airlines, things eleven flights a day from New York into Fort, Lauderdale, so there is a migration that happens every year. People from the northeast come to warm weather states. You know what happened is now that the governor's feel like there's a an influx employed or a concentration of to travel up. Let me tell you people from Florida or not moving to the northeast. It's not a matter of moving to the northeast. It's a matter of visiting and vice versa. There are those. Who say that your state is on is on the verge of being out of control. You had a record number of cases today fifty, five hundred. Your new hospitalizations were the most in a month. Isn't that an issue? The increase in cases in the state of Florida or in low age individuals. Our ICU bed is is highly available. There's plenty of ICU. Beds available in the State of Florida and Governor D- Santa's leading. He has been creating a environment because not every part of the state is the same so not every state should be treated with the same type of restrictions. So why isn't this simply about taking precautions and saving lives as I mentioned, you didn't answer the question. You did have a record number of new cases today. Regardless of what age group they fall in the virus is still spreading in your state. I understand the point you're making is you're seeing cities like Tampa Pinellas County Dade County. You're seeing where they countywide instances of masks. Requirements are taking place so as you're seeing. We're spiked for taking place local governments or taking it because you can't put the same set of terms on everywhere. If you've got a hot spot and you had an increase in numbers, those mayors. Mayors and those county administrations are the necessary precautions as they illnesses, the best needs to curb the numbers wire. But why should you not have st just mentioned masks and orders from a more localized level? Why not a state order though on masks which the governor said he's he's not going to do that. It's too hard to enforce enforceable in more densely populated states. Why isn't? As enforceable in the state, of Florida. Not every communities the same, nor should they be treated the same as those areas that have spikes in numbers. There's definitely an argument to be made where there needs to be a different protocol established there than in the rural parts of the state that don't have the spike in numbers, nor the transient

And for the next five years they had a hundred and forty three to digital in administrative proceedings. All the way to the US supreme court because three major carriers braniff continental and Texas international colluded to keep this little upstart from ever getting off to ground and the more. They fought the harder Kelleher dug in and it was an affront his spirit of his Galateri -tarian spirit was an affront to democratize in the skies. And if they just left them alone. I'm pretty sure that the south west would have just bleh. Ed money and gone away. But what they did was they they confronted her calendars fierce, competitiveness and sense of idealism. And then Southwest Airlines was born what's very interesting those three carriers are gone today. Right. And southwest is the most successful airline in the world. I am glad they're gone too. They they were not fun to fly on. Now. I will say this is I mean is silly. I grew up in Oklahoma. And I moved to Minnesota about the age of twelve and I remember, saving all my money, all my money. Kevin when I was thirteen years old to fly from Minnesota back to also to visit my friends and the tickets VIN. We're more than they are now true story. So I have a big appreciation for south west because they have dramatically lowered the the cost of traveling everywhere. I mean, the the the prices of flying are so low now, I mean, it used to be something that only the elite. It could do. And now, it's very very affordable. Could you share with from your perspective looking at it and looking at all the data and spinning years researching about the impact you think southwest has made on just the mobility of the average American and the lowering the costs of flying. Yeah. It's one of the things that totally impressed this early on with them. And they you know, they they have really taken that whole cost structure low fares and are low cost to create row fares and made it a cause a noble heroic. 'cause and they would call it the business of freedom. And I'll tell you what that looks like when we were doing research for this. We had a twenty something year old rampage and probably didn't have more than a high school education. I don't remember exactly. But he said Kevin. We don't have statistical significance on this show on. He's looking at the research or right? He's statistical significance, but I can tell you on average that about one out of every seven or eight of these little Disney pull on bags that we put on a belt roader and load the plane comes from a child in a broken home in if we. We don't put these bags on the airplane on time. And we don't turn this airplane back in those days. It was ten minutes. Now, it's more like twenty five. We don't turn this airplane on time. That means that we're going to put more airplanes in the system, which means we're gonna have to find the money to pay for those airplanes, which is going to come out of ticket increases the cost and tickets, and that little boy or little girl is not gonna be able to fly between mom and dad who's geographically separated. And that's an affront to the business of freedom. And I thought my gosh, if the twenty year old rampage in gets it at that level, and they create a critical mass of employees who understand the movement and the cons behind the movement. That is their secret sauce. The that's a very powerful concept. Ten minute turn want to get it on a deep passionate level. That's one thing. That's that's getting a twenty year old employ to being gauge. Yeah. I mean, according to Gallup, they say what sixty seven percent of American employees are not engaged at work you the research. So to get somebody twelve years old to be engaged. That's that's powerful. But then to pull it off. Can you explain how the ten minute turn? I don't think maybe some of the listeners are familiar with that terminology..

Then you're going back and forth to the airport. Yeah. Yes. I really shouldn't be worried. But I I don't like the fact that I'm flying the Boeing jet. So when you have other countries that are gonna be grounding these jets, why wouldn't the US follow suit on this. Why wouldn't they just you know? Why? Okay. Well, here's the thing though. I mean, what's the precedent has been set? And let's just say this that.

"Great don't even write anything. It's great. Finally, there's a woman at Texas is very upset about Southwest Airlines. And there's a lot of reasons to be upset of Southwest Airlines. If you've ever flown Southwest Airlines, but she is upset because the gate agent made fun of her daughter's name her daughter's name is ABC D E. Now, I will not make fun of a child's name because they did not pick their own name. But if you were a gate agent, could you say that name without kind of making fun of it? Yeah. I mean, look part of the deal there. I always think it's funny looks certain airlines like there's one airline in particular always tries to say everybody's last name, and you go like, why would you even put yourself through that kind of challenge, you know, about forty percent of if you're gonna have no shot on but the girl's name was obscenity. So it is a different name. I saw this on social media. I think there are plenty of times and social media. I'll see things where I go. Hey, you know, what that's getting me thinking about something different. I saw like twenty thousand retweets on this. You know, how many retweets it should've had zero. Okay. Now, you shouldn't make fun of a kid's name. But I didn't need the awareness factor here. This wasn't some outrageous social issue, someone buying a counter said something, maybe they shouldn't have said you overheard it, and that's fine. But you gave your kid your name. You gave your name. Hey, I have an e in the Ryan I've dealt with that my whole life people actually act like I did it and I go. Hey, yeah. And people are like people are like, oh, that's cooler at stupid. I'm like, you know, what it's crazy when you're born. Usually don't have a voice like you. Don't get the raise your hand and go, you know, what can we just? So to avoid confusion like people don't really want to hear from you minutes after your born. So I get the part where it's a mom who's upset. There's nothing you're more protective of than your kids. It's the fact that I don't have any. But this is not something that we need to have on the Ellen show. All right. This fish got a little bit too much play. It's very fair also app. City sounds like a place that charges through two hundred dollars a month to like work out. Yeah. I mean if I if I named my kid Thor. The Celtics are broken Gordon Hayward. It's been over a year since his injury. And he's still isn't right. Kyrie Irving had this to say about his team mate. He said, quote, honestly, I think that he's passing a little too much for Gordon's potential and his talent. I think coming up in the next few games. He'll be able to show some different things that he's been on for the start of the season just being more aggressive offensively. And looking for his shot more. We had practice yesterday. And I told him look for look for your shot. More get aggressive and get yourself going because you are great talent in this league. And I don't want you to forget that. Ryan russillo. What do you think about Kyrie's assessment of Gordon Hayward? He's right on man. I mean, Kyrie's really good with this stuff. And when I watched the Celtics the positive of their struggles is that I think they're really easy to see you see guys hesitate because I think really good players in the beginning of the season. Do this thing where they want to be unselfish? They wanna make sure that everybody's fitting in and they don't want to be the guy saying shots. But now this game is an aggressive game. And when you start to be playing it at a passive level when you're as good as a Hayward or sometimes even them, and I've seen it from Kyrie you really only hurting yourself in the team. So you can't have everybody out of control and all being aggressive and never passing anyone. But when I watched them, I see everyone kind of processing too much or thinking about how the other guys playing off of them. So Kyrie's one hundred percent on point here. The problem for Gordon, though, is that he's not now closing games. And he may be seeing less minutes because it's been such a slow start for him. So I don't know if that's part of it..
