US Market continues to decline

ARC's latest numbers are not looking good. The US market is once again down.

Total tickets issued have fallen for the first 7 months of the year. Down 2.05%. With domestic down more than international.

This continues to say that the flight from the agency to the direct side is a consistent trend but the number of flights available are down across the board.

In the fall schedules taking place at the end of the summer - we see a further set of cutbacks.

Delta will cut domestic and international flights. It is also intending to drop all turboprop operations. It is further going to end all codeshare on Turboprop aircraft domestically.

Consumers in the USA are now going to have to get used to a world where changes are going to be negative as well as positive.

Welcome to a new reality.
