American Airlines CEO Unconcerned by Potential U.S. Recession. – It is understandable for airline and hotel CEOs to get cocky when travel demand is so high. But consumer and business demand can turn on a dime during a recession. As much as we all want to travel after being home for 2 years, when people are fearful of their jobs, they stop or scale back discretionary spending (like flights). They may still travel, but they will take road trips instead of planes to their destinations to save money.

Travel insurance helps to mitigate the cost and keeps you from blowing your budget. Check out the latest prices using our referral link to Allianz travel insurance.
