Looks like the airline industry is just as overwhelmed as the healthcare system

<<Nice Video….We may either see a reversal and start declining or we may experience a further pump for a while.I'd say outrightly that the space is unpredictable so we shouldn't allow the dynamism of the space tell when to make profit off the market as I have been able to make more than 13 b tc in just October alone.I didn't do that from buying the dip and hodling but implementing trades with the sig nals provided by Declan lim. The market has seen worse situations than currently,so in order to be able to ride with the wave our assets must be backed up with a medium that would enable us not feel the fall in price at beairsh moments.I'd suggest trad ing as it is less affected by the unpredictable nature of the market…

why do they get government bailouts when staff don't show up?

Stella David November 24, 2021 - 11:17 PM

We need to get back to living…some want the Corona to continue as they make loads of money and do not care how it damages many!!I hope to fly to the USA from the UK March 2022..

The Kyles and Karens gotta go somewhere……….can't wait to see their BS fights and whatevers!

Tyler November 25, 2021 - 12:16 AM

How will this be blamed on white people Is the question? 🤔

Jubei Kibagami November 25, 2021 - 12:23 AM

And Fights! mouhahahah

Jarid Gaming November 25, 2021 - 12:26 AM

All jobs are like this. I never had a job where a boss overworked me and i was burned out and quit. I dont care helping once and a while. Im a team player, but i dont want to work 60 days straight

Drew H November 25, 2021 - 12:41 AM

Even passenger airlines have the logistic backups like supply chains and shipping cargo?

Michael Yun November 25, 2021 - 12:44 AM

Tip don't go traveling till 2023 at least. Hopefully by then flight price also goes down to normal levels

N P November 25, 2021 - 1:03 AM

I wonder how no one saw this coming specially during the holiday season coming up..

kucing chanel November 25, 2021 - 3:23 AM

Wow https://youtube.com/shorts/3QrAXrFdAeY?feature=share 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

I sold 100h PTO in 2021. I elected to sell another 200h PTO in 2022. Good money, but yeah… I haven’t flew anywhere since December 2019 (basically when the pandemic begun). So I just go to work, work, and work.

At least I will be loaded with money to then put in the stock market to gamble each day to keep my life excited, just like most ppl nowadays to pump up the mkt since there is not much places to spend them.

Newark and Ohare were both quite busy yesterday. TSA at Newark Terminal A is very confusing, just shouting our instructions no one knows where to go. Good luck

alooga555 November 25, 2021 - 5:03 AM

We have a positive cash flow now? Good. Let's start buying back shares again!

Red Pill November 25, 2021 - 5:16 AM

why didn't you talk about v. mandates ?

AC geo November 25, 2021 - 5:19 AM

Spin it like you want, it's all about the mandates. These media outlets aren't telling the truth!!! Check out the alternative media outlets to hear from airline representatives about the truth!!!! Come on sheep, open your eyes!!!

Nahyo xSoldier326 November 25, 2021 - 6:07 AM

You really have to explain dumb people about delays? People don't have common sense!

Raman 611 November 25, 2021 - 6:31 AM

America = fail

The Generational Wealth Guy November 25, 2021 - 6:32 AM

Something tells me were about to see a whole lot more companies forcefully pay even more next year for salaries at entry level roles and benefits. Basically, hardly any profitability for the fortune 500 companies is coming very soon

Kim Castro November 25, 2021 - 7:57 AM

We've been in continued weakness for two months but it will not last forever. The bull market structure is intact and I don't say this lightly, we're almost bottomed out.

Kim Castro November 25, 2021 - 7:57 AM

A successful retest of $4,000 continues to be successful. I'm gonna sound like a parrot here, but Ethereum is one of the best-looking charts out there. Now's the time to be patient, not bearish.

Kim Castro November 25, 2021 - 7:58 AM

I don't do FUD or hopium. I just look at charts and different models to try to figure out the story they're trying to tell us. Right now, the story is "oversold, bull run resumes soon." Patience will be rewarded friends.

That's what scares me the most, unruly passengers.

Kathy Erickson November 25, 2021 - 12:59 PM

I'm not a frequent flyer, by any stretch of the imagination. But I did fly this past May, and it was uneventful and an unpacked flight. I flew again in October and, while it was still uneventful, all flights were full. Full flights mean full airport and more crowds…neither of which are my biggest concern…which is unruly passengers. A BIG thank you to folks working for the airlines…(and healthcare, coffee shops, liquor stores, retail etc.) It's up to us…the customers…to be appreciative and respectful. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Squ1 November 25, 2021 - 9:53 PM

I hope the staffing shortages continue and these awful companies go bankrupt.

Aurobindo Ghosh November 25, 2021 - 10:05 PM

when flight of wsj journalist and reporter gets delayed or cancelled then it's news?

claude bujold November 26, 2021 - 1:19 AM

all airline workers that can afford…resign now!

Alex Fernandez November 26, 2021 - 6:28 AM

Two things walk with a cary-on and online check-in

Daniel Hoffmann November 26, 2021 - 7:11 AM

I love how you don’t even touch the fact this is from mandates and pilot strikes.

Yufeng yan November 26, 2021 - 9:53 AM

Mrs Natalie is legit and her method works like magic I keep on earning every single week with her new strategy

M G November 26, 2021 - 11:37 PM

It is totally unnecessary to travel right now people….Change your habits, use the technology and get together with family virtually….you won't miss anything and will be safer, and save more

daveskillerbread November 27, 2021 - 1:09 AM

I wonder if paying your employees more could help?

Neon2110 November 27, 2021 - 9:36 AM

Check in takes a lot longer now however TSA only took 8mins to go through – this is flying international.

Mac T November 27, 2021 - 3:27 PM

This is the same story every year lol. It should be expected.
