Look for record air travel crowds this fall and holidays

… And for fares to increase.  Nearly 3 million people a day took to flight over last month’s 4-day Labor Day weekend — and more to come for fall travel and upcoming holidays.  

Major carriers like American, Southwest and United are fighting capacity and scheduling issues with now long term 737 Max flight safety issues — that have forced capacity cut backs and blocked deliveries — and some route cancellations.  And all this with record setting revenue — maybe less is good for airlines — especially if they can sneak in price increases?
