Airlines base their airline ticket price on future forecasts.
Given how the stock market fell this week and reports that the Federal Reserve
may force the economy into recession in order to restore pricing control,
the future doesn't look promising for unnecessary spending.
Perhaps this was the impetus behind Alaska Airlines' surprising discount on tickets to Hawaii this autumn.
In an effort to fill some seats, the airline is offering lower-than-usual fares to Hawaii,
with the caveat that you book a vacation between September 7 and November 16, 2022.
