Airlines Refund And Cancellation Fee Due to Delta Variant

There has been a significant hike seen in flight cancellation due to delta variant.

Several major airlines in the United States are experiencing a sudden increase in the cancellation of flights. The airline industry has also started seeing a significant drop in travel demand as well due to delta variant. The more contagious delta variant is the root cause of the spreading dilemma-like situations amongst leisure travelers. The fourth-largest domestic airline, Southwest Airlines, said that the carrier is experiencing weaker demand this month due to delta variant.
