Our story- travel will be a pain!
Like you it has been some time since I traveled on-board a full B737 Jet with about 150 travelers. It was a normal time with every seat occupied, pretzels and peanuts and a delay of about 15 minutes. I remember my Lyft driver who was waiting for me at the third floor of the Garage. The Political folks in Las Vegas have not been helping the Ubers and Lyft folks–that’s Vegas!
After 9/11 I did get use to the TSA folks and lines, boarding by up to 10 groups and airplane seats which seem to get skinnier!
After the extended March lock-downs I eagerly await the good olden days of full planes and low fares which helped me travel to more places, close deals and make new friends.
It changed and Warren Buffett sold all his stock in Delta, United and American.
Travel bookings are down by 98%, the typical domestic flight leaves the gate with about 12-13 passengers. Those who need to fly experience frequent flight changes and may be required to make stopovers at the Hub Airports likes Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Detroit and Minneapolis. Looks like we have been on a trip in time. The Airline industry is in the worst condition, ever. Airlines will be struggling to keep the flight crews proficient since they are not making the number of landings in accordance with FAA rules. Airline will be furlough a large number of employees. As a part of the Government loans extended by the US Government airlines need to retain most employees during this summer. In the meantime, Warren Buffett of Berkshire Hathaway was selling all of his major holding in the Airline Industry with American, Delta, United and Southwest!
What should you do if you need to travel!
For disclosure I was lucky to work for American Airlines as a director on the Leisure Vacations department. Since my retirement I have associated with the Private Jet Industry as a Consultant. I handle VIP Travelers on the Las Vegas Strip with Luxury Jet transportation from their hometown to the Las Vegas Strip. The Strip is totally deserted with some Resorts scheduled to open this June. The Executive Team at the Wynn is leading the Casino industry with a wide range of enhancements to keep the travelers safe. The Resort Industry has a lot to loose when a mini Pandemic surges on the Las Vegas Strip.
In the meantime, with stringent crowd regulations I don’t anticipate shows, sports events and conventions to return in the very near future. Some predict that this will happen after we have a vaccine for all of our citizens. The recovery will be very painful and make take years!
Private Jets- Compare with commercial air!
Medical experts continue to focus on distance control, this may be a challenge onboard a 100 plus seat commercial plane. You never know your risks, it could be one person seated next to you. You could stay at home—–or restart your business, meet with clients. Face to Face business concepts have not changed! The decision is “Yours”
