One way flight prices climb aggressively from their low point, then fall again 

  • Booked round trip fares have continued to decrease since the start of the pandemic, with a brief increase in April, only to be followed with greater price cuts. One way trips initially saw a large increase, likely due to increased demand as travelers were not sure of their travel plans and increasingly booked one way trips.
    • Two key questions remain:
      1. At what point will round trip fares stabilize?  Early models point toward stability at -20%
      2. Will round trip fares follow a similar path to the stability of one way fares?
