Airline fares falling: what it means for airline stocks

According to new data from airfare analysis website Hopper, airfares are set to fall another 8% this fall.

While lower prices are good news for the consumer, reduced fares could soon weigh on airlines' bottom line.

With major U.S. airlines including Delta, United, American, Southwest, and JetBlue all lower for the year, the "Halftime Report" experts debated if there will be smooth skies, or more turbulence ahead for these stocks.
