Sabre reported net air bookings at 57% of 2019 levels in the third quarter of 2022, with executives  on a third quarter earnings call saying it was the best quarter of recovery since the pandemic began. While bookings started slowly in the quarter because of airline operational issues, they “improved considerably” after that,” said Sean Menke, CEO, reaching 58% of recovery in August and 59% in September with improvement continuing into October. Contributing to the recovery, according to executives, is a new agreement with BCD Travel which, along with previous agreements with American Express Global Business Travel and online travel agency Hopper, are adding to the recovery process. Sabre does not see evidence of a slowdown in either corporate or leisure demands with airfares remaining strong despite economic uncertainties. Airfares, according to executives, are currently about $100 higher – more than 30% -- than the 2019 benchmark.  Sabre's net loss for the third quarter was $140.7 million, an improvement from the $240.6 million net loss in the third quarter of 2021.
