Issue Overview

It was nice while it lasted. But the U.S. demand recovery has lost its momentum.

May was better than April. June was looking better than May. By late June though, Florida and Arizona were among the new global epicenters of the Covid-19 pandemic. Would-be travelers grew increasingly wary.

For most people, that’s not a practical option.
