OMICRON HALTS TRAVEL INDUSTRY'S RECOVERY PLANS
BARRY BIFFLE: I think if you look at it – I think we're almost two years into this, and so I think consumers, as well as our employees, they're just not panicking and overreacting. You know, we're looking at sales volumes that are still very strong. We had a great Thanksgiving. We're looking [at] great Christmas bookings.
So I think the American consumer is smart, and I think the facts that we've seen so far are that there's milder symptoms. The facts are it looks like the vaccine is preventing severe outcomes. So I think if you're vaccinated, you're boosted, live your life…I think, you know, we're just a few weeks away from the pill treatments. So I think, you know … I think we're moving beyond panicking anymore.
