The stats for August were fine. Hotel occupancy was up strongly, after posting a nothing-to-brag-about increase of less than 1 percentage point in July. ADRs rose, RevPAR was up and airplanes continued to run more than 85% full. So far, so good. Then Spain's budget came out, rioters hit the streets, and we were all reminded that the macro cloud hanging over businesses of all kind hasn't gone anywhere. Priceline shares, always sensitive to Europe, shed more than 1%. Other travel shares also gave up gains from earlier in the month.

And yet ... the question is whether – or how long – this can last in the face of a weakening economy and a looming fiscal cliff.

Industry Update Summary April 2012

Online travel's "Goldilocks" recovery continues. Hotel occupancy is rising, hotel rates and RevPAR are around pre-recession peaks and still climbing, and load factors on airplanes are up from last year even as the price of jet fuel slips. Screwing this up would take more than a village. It would take a Congress.
