I'm not trying to be negative, but there may be a cause for concern. For 13 consecutive days, from June 4 to June 16, our week-over-week increase was 21.8% or higher. For the 5 days since, June 17 to June 21, that week-over-week increase has only maxed out at 16.0% (the min was 8.5%). We may be seeing the rate of increase slowing.
Time will tell - back in the 28-May to 2-June time period, we had 5 of 6 days where the week-over-week increase was 6.2% or lower (1 of these days had negative numbers). But that was also comping against the Memorial Day period. That dynamic doesn't seem to be in play as much as regards these last 5 days.
Maybe the other poster was on to something when suggesting we are reaching the current capacity limits. Maybe slower till 1jul?
None of the US carriers have increased capacity since the first week of June, with the exception of WN.
You can't sustain those growth rates we saw earlier in the month without more capacity. Recall DL & B6 still have no middle seat restrictions, and as a result both are operating well under 20% of their normal seating capacity, UA is only operating at 15% capacity.

Growth rates won't be steady, and we'll likely see growth rates rise and fall over the course of the year
