General | Latest Info

US airline employment will soon fall to its lowest level since the mid-1980s, result of the pandemic's devastating impact on the sector, industry group said Thursday. Airlines will have cut the equivalent of about 90 000 jobs by year-end, including more than 30 000 furloughs at airlines like United and American that began last month and the departure of thousands of other workers who accepted buyouts from Southwest, Delta and other carriers. Passenger carriers and their employees' labor unions have repeatedly urged Congress for a second 25 billion federal aid package to preserve jobs through March, but Democrats and Republicans haven't reached agreement on a new national coronavirus stimulus package or for aid solely for the batter sector. The industry's workforce in the fourth quarter will fall to about 370 000 full-time equivalent jobs, from 460 000 in March, according to Airlines for America, trade group that represents major US Airlines. Air travel demand has begun to recover from more than five-decade lows hit in April, early in the pandemic, but it remains a fraction of last year's levels. Since the start of October, Transportation Security Administration screened 34 million people, down nearly 65 % from the 97 million people who went through airport checkpoints during the same time last year. Thanksgiving will provide only a modest uptick in demand, and airline executives on Thursday highlighted continued challenges facing business in pandemic. Airlines for America say US carriers' Thanksgiving-week capacity will be down close to 39 % from a year ago, compared with a 47 % drop in the first 2 weeks of November. Southwest on Thursday said revenue rebound appeared to be losing steam for November and December bookings. While companies expect elections to impact trends, it is unclear whether softness in booking trends is also a direct result of the recent rise in COVID-19 cases, Southwest said in filing. As such, companies remain cautious in this uncertain revenue environment. Delta CEO Ed Bastian noted optimism following positive results from Pfizer and BioNTech vaccine trial released this week, news that sent airline stocks soaring, but warned the industry isn't out of the woods. Keep in mind that while developing a vaccine is an important step, widespread distribution will take many months, so we continue to expect 2021 will be a year with continued challenges, he said in a staff note.

Flight award chart

American AAdvantage used to offer two levels of award pricing: saver and Anytime. Anytime Awards were double the cost of saver, but give access to any seat on plane. That changed on April 8 2014, when, without notice, Americans introduced three tiers of Anytime prices, and the third tier was unpublished. They introduced highest-Level holiday prices for Anytime Awards in 2015. The American award chart says there are select dates that require higher number of miles. What they do not disclose is that there are three levels of prices beyond Level 1 and 2 Anytime levels that are not revealed to customers in the award chart. Except for some fine print, you might think award pricing on the chart is all there is: There are five levels of AAnytime award prices and that is on top of saver award pricing. So America doesnt have a three-or four-tier pricing chart. They have six tiers. That one-ups even Delta when they still publish their award charts. Some Airlines will price extra mileage Awards based on how full the flight is, or how expensive it is. American prices its extra mileage Anytime Awards based on date. And in the case of flights between New York JFK and both Los Angeles and San Francisco also on flight time as I first noticed in mid-2016. For premium cross country flights between New York and San Francisco / Los Angeles, youll find Sunday after Thanksgiving is Level 5. I was surprised by some of the things that warrant Level 4. Here are some examples: October 19-November 11 this year is just Peak fall, so is November 26-December 2. November 15-19 is Level 4 for LAX only due to American Music Awards Grammys, Academy Awards, and Upfronts get Level 4. JP Morgans Health Care Investor Conference get Level 4 for San Francisco normally premium cross country market is price base on Day and time of departure, recognizing that if American releases saver award space that lower price would trump. Outside of this market, Americans do have peak dates in the City. For the most part, that just designates whether Anytime price Level 3 is in effect, and applies to events like Indy 500, Burning Man, Austin City Limits, and Albuquerque Balloon Festival. President's Day is Level 3 throughout the Northeast. Internationally, Oktoberfest in Munich is Level 3, Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and. Patricks Day in Dublin to name few. The only market that currently reach Level 4 or 5 based on special events is Atlanta around Superbowl. I appreciate that Americans still have award chart that they are willing to publish. I appreciate that they mostly stick to it. However, they stick to it only as long as there isnt exception, that they do not tell customers about.

FAFSA Financial Information

Parents who rank high on the income scale often rush up to me after my financial aid information seminars wondering if they have any chance of getting help in financing their sons and daughters ' college education. All too frequently, parents believe that they have no choice but to pay every cent of tuition and fees, room and board, books, and all other college-related expenses, without any financial assistance from other sources. While searching for financial aid for parents who make too much may be challenging, dont despair! There are various aid opportunities that are not based on financial need and are available to families regardless of their household income level and assets.
