In the first two weeks of the year, flights from the United States to the Philippines soared by an average of 25 percent, according to data from Thomson Reuters.
Meanwhile, the United Kingdom’s share of domestic domestic flights jumped from 18 percent in July to 27 percent in August.
And with the number of international flights on offer shrinking, the U.K. has begun to pull back from its dominance.
“It’s kind of like the beginning of a domino effect,” said John Jaffe, managing director at Thomson Reuters’ Asia Pacific division.
The U.S. was the first major economy to start pulling back from the U, and other nations followed suit, he said.
“The U.A.E. is kind of the most egregious of the big three,” said Jaffe.
“They’re all losing money.”
The U’s loss is a direct result of a series of events: The Trump administration, which is in charge of the U-2 spy plane, has suspended flights from U. S. airspace, while the Trump administration has delayed the U.-3 spy plane from reaching the United Arab Emirates.
The new president also cut a deal with Russia that requires Russia to pay back a $400 million loan that U. A.E., the United Sates and others had secured from Russia.
“In the end, we’re going to have to take some tough decisions on our own,” said Paul Stoltenberg, a U.N. expert on international security.
“Some of those are going to be politically difficult.
Some of them are going too far.
And some of them aren’t going to work.”
In a way, the decision to cancel the U’s U-3 spy flights is an acknowledgement that, if the U doesn’t do anything, the next domino will fall, he added.
The United States was the world’s No. 1 air carrier for four years in the early years of the Trump presidency.
And in early February, the Trump White House announced it would cut all domestic flights to the U from July 1, and that the U would no longer fly to Russia.
But the U wasn’t the only country feeling the impact of the United A.
As of Monday, the Philippines was the third-largest carrier in the world with 1.2 million domestic flights.
China, which has been one of the biggest investors in U.s stock markets, was also on the receiving end of Trump’s anti-China stance.
“We’re going from a position of strength to a position where we need to reevaluate our strategy, and our investments in our industry,” said James Feltman, chief executive of the National Association of Conveyors and Dealers.
“I think there’s going to come a point where we have to make some hard choices.”
In the meantime, airlines in the U., Europe and Asia are making adjustments.
In June, Air India suspended all domestic routes between the U and the Ural Mountains.
In September, Qatar Airways suspended all U. flight services between the Emirates and Doha.
And Air France, the biggest airline in the Middle East, stopped flying between the UAE and Dubai.
“Airline CEOs have been very careful about what they say and how they present it,” said Stoltonberg.
“This is a very, very important issue that’s very relevant to the region.
If we don’t do something, there’s a very real possibility that we will see a domineering effect from other carriers.”
