Airlines Cutting Flights on Sept. 11

Airlines Cutting Flights on Sept. 11

Quote:
Some of the nation's largest airlines are cutting back their Sept. 11 flight schedules, bowing to Americans' reluctance to fly on the anniversary of the attack.

American and United, the two biggest carriers, are making unspecified reductions for that day based on weak bookings. No. 3 Delta is trimming flights for the entire work week of Sept. 9-13.

Unease about another terrorist strike is behind the decline in bookings, but so are patriotism and remembrance, according to interviews with consumers, travel agents and industry experts.

Some said the date just doesn't seem right for scheduling business or pleasure trips.

With the consumer confidence index being so shaky as of late, it's good to see that the consumer remembrance index is strong and stable.
