Actually your statement is an opniion…believing they will be losing revenue is your opinion, not a fact. Assuming they aren’t going to accept “flimsy” excuses is your opinion. Don’t you think I am aware of the new cancellation policy? But thanks for the quote anyway.
The point of my comment is that they would like you to believe they are giving up revenue. It makes it slightly easier for some to swallow. Of course they will not continue along with their new policies if it causes their overall revenue to drop! It’s really easy to see the big picture - they don’t care about the indvidual hosts - their only concern is the number of total bookings that Air gets.
They are increasing their strict fees to 5%, while removing former protections. And now guest can cancel during the stay…and get 50% back. Say what??? I can see anyone near a ski resort delisting. No snow this weekend in the forecast so we cancel. Shaking my head…
Air is also going to keep the guest service fees when a guest cancels during their stay. The host will be giving up 50% of their revenue because Air is making is soooo easy for a guest to cancel.
