Some U.S. passenger carriers are already trying to boost demand during the slower fall season.
JetBlue Airways and Alaska Airlines offered sales this week on flights, both of which end on Wednesday and Thursday, for travel booked from August through early November, which is commonly known as "shoulder season."

Airlines generally see a falloff in demand during fall, as families focus on the start of another school year, so it’s not out of the ordinary for airlines to offer discounts on tickets during that time. Still, Clint Henderson, the managing editor of travel website The Points Guy, told FOX Business that he has noticed even more alerts lately.
"My gut says it’s because airlines got a little too aggressive with pricing over the summer and may have scared some consumers away," Henderson told FOX Business.
To pull in travelers, JetBlue is offering to knock off $25 for one-way flights. Meanwhile, Alaska is offering a few different deals, with some one-way flights starting at just $39.
