Avoid Air Travel, Cancellation Rates Increasing

Just a public service announcement.

I spoke with a Xiamen Airlines office agent and found out cancellation rates are increasing for both international and domestic routes. She said this wasn't idiosyncratic to her airline. It's happening across the board.

I was trying to buy an international flight from Kunming to Los Angeles and she warned me that cancellations are increasing and delays of days are not unheard of after a cancellation. With a 3 day negative test required to enter the USA and a CDC requirement that travel needs to occur in that 72 hour timeframe, I have to reconsider returning end of this month and hope the PSB will kindly grant another 30 day extension.

If you really need to get back, it might be better to fly to a tier 1 city like Shanghai, Beijing and exit China from there. More flights means cancelations soon redirected.

I see that some airlines are also not giving refunds on cancellation but are instead just giving a voucher for future travel.

Also, I see that rates have increased significantly since last fall when there were fewer flights (and maybe fewer cancellations).
