Where is everybody?


On what is supposed to be one of the busiest travel days of the year — I wonder if you folks out there are experiencing what I experienced yesterday as I traveled back to the Worldwide Headquarters.

That experience? A plane that was just a little over half full.

I’ve received a number of notes today from folks — all of whom have either commented that the airports at which they work are busy — but not that busy — or that planes that have been flown on have not been packed.

Great if we look at this from a passenger standpoint.

Not so great for those of us who know what this means to the airline industry’s revenue numbers for the month.
