United Airlines Gave Out $100,000 Downgrading Passengers On One Hawaii Flight This Weekend

United flight 363 from Newark to Honolulu was supposed to be operated by a Boeing 777 on Saturday. The airline swapped the plane for a Boeing 767-300, and that meant fewer business class seats. The airline needed ten volunteers who were willing to downgrade. These ten passengers each received $10,000 in travel voucher compensation for volunteering, or $100,000 total for the one flight, and they still got to fly in premium economy seats.

United Increasing Checked Bag Fees – Unless You Prepay Online

Last month JetBlue increased its first checked bag fee to $35 but kept it at $30 if prepaid online. Now United has announced they're matching the move on domestic and short haul Latin America and Caribbean routes. With United getting rid of bag sizers at the gate and higher bag fees may exacerbate the 'bring everything on board' mentality.

United Pilot Saves The Day For Four Passengers Stranded At Chicago O’Hare

Washington Post national political correspondent Jenna Johnson tried to make a quick trip home to D.C. on United after the Nevada caucuses, a surprise for her husband who wasn’t expecting to see her until after Super Tuesday. She didn’t make her Las Vegas – Washington Dulles flight, while roads into the airport were closed off while the President left town, but United rebooked her onto a connecting flight through Chicago.

Weekly Roundup, Friday 21 February 2020

By all accounts, the Airbus A220 is a lovely plane, well liked by airlines and passengers alike. How ironic that this great airplane almost completely destroyed its developer – Bombardier.

Bypass LaGuardia: Seaplane Service Will Challenge New York-Boston Shuttle

Cape Air won approval to start flights from Boston Harbor to New York City, at East 23rd St. in Manhattan. This is a one year pilot program for four flights a day. Currently Amtrak is desirable for its downtown-to-downtown service, making up for slow train speeds by avoiding commutes for passengers looking to travel between city centers. This service offers to cut out the airport transit while retaining the speed of flying, though of course is subject to weather more than train travel. The maj...

The JetBlue Flight Attendant Who’s A Dead Ringer For Meghan Markle

Thirty two year old JetBlue JFK-based flight attendant Christine Mathis says she first started getting confused for Meghan Markle in 2011 when passengers would say she ‘looked like that girl from Suits‘ on USA.

Seriously, Who At American Airlines Thought This Was Food?

One passenger shared the meal they were served in first class on an American Eagle breakfast flight from New York LaGuardia to Atlanta.

American Released Data to the SEC That Shows How Award Travelers are Doing

It's been tough to be an American AAdvantage member over the last several years if you actually want to use your miles to fly American. Since US Airways management took over in the final days of 2013, far fewer passengers have been traveling on American using their miles. That's largely the result of a lack of saver award inventory. The airline pledged to change that, and just released new numbers to the SEC that says how they're doing. Continue reading American Released Data to the SEC That...

Starting March 11 You’ll Be Able to Select Your Meal in Advance On American Airlines Regional Jets

American Airlines started letting customers pre-select their meals online when they're flying in premium cabins back in the fall of 2012. Delta didn't roll out this feature until early 2019 and United is still in testing. While American moved forward with pre-orders for buy on board in coach, they didn't actually extend pre-orders to first class on regional jets. That's finally changing.
