Busy Sunday for air travel: @TSA screened 2.45 million people, busiest day since mid-Feb 2020, still ~15% below 2019 but big holiday boost for airlines and few cancellations thanks to blue skies and incentive$. American, for example, had 25 cancellations yday.

Boeing, airlines tumbling today after UK, Italy, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore's travel restrictions from southern Africa, incl South Africa, over new variant. Service between the U.S.-SA is limited but host of new rules show how covid variants can quickly upend travel.

and while intl business travel still relatively quiet and these are not one of the main lucrative corridors, many companies do NOT like unpredictability when sending their people out on the road. Could end up costing them more.

Crowded Thanksgiving tables are good news for Williams-Sonoma, even after the holidays are over. I took a closer look at the retailer, which has seen shares more than double this year ‚ÄĒ and why it still may have room to run. $WSM

People will be traveling with food to contribute to the Thanksgiving table. @TSA allows carrying solid foods through checkpoints, but anything you can spill, spread, spray, pump or pour should be packed in a checked bag. And yes, frozen turkey can be carried onto flights! ūü¶É

Wall Street workers are slow-walking their return to the office. Bosses are vexed. Office attendance was 27% in late Oct. and is projected to climb to 47% by the end of Jan. That's remarkable for an industry that celebrates face time and toughness.
