#TerrorInTheSkies - Airlines Are Cutting Their Fall Flights

If you plan on flying somewhere this fall, you might want to pay close attention to changes and cancellations on your scheduled trip.

USA Today reports that airlines have started removing flights from their schedules because demand during the pandemic is so low. After a spike in summer travel, airlines are noticing that fall trips are not being booked as frequently.

United Airlines currently has 2,000 flights scheduled for each day in September. However, the airline had planned to have double the amount... Even Southwest Airlines has removed 25 percent of their September flights. And American Airlines flight numbers are down from 5,400 to 2,900 a day in September.

But there is some good news, for those flying with United Airlines at least! The airline just announced they will be dropping their $200 change fees on all economy and premium tickets within the U.S. -- a change that will officially start in January.

To make sure your flight current plans haven't changed, USA Today suggests checking your reservation periodically, reading e-mails from the airline, and if you can -- be flexible and prepared to spend more money if your flight plans do need to change.
