Airlines drop service to 75 airports

US airlines taking government funding during the coronavirus pandemic had been required to maintain service to all their destinations. But airlines have been asking for exemptions from this requirement citing low passenger demand, and the Department of Transportation (DOT) has allowed 15 US airlines to drop their service to 75 airports. United and Delta airlines were approved to drop flights to 11 airports, Allegiant Air was allowed to stop service to six airports, and JetBlue, Alaska, Spirit...

Alaska’s Squirrelly Gambit To Make Up Lost Ticket Sales Due To Coronavirus

Alaska is making a similiar – albeit less generous – move as what JetBlue has announced. They are also suspending fees on new ticket purchases made made March 11, but they are only suspending fees until March 11. That is, if you buy a new ticket but decide on March 12 not to travel then fees apply. And oh by the way this policy is meant “to support you through coronavirus uncertainty>” Continue reading Alaska’s Squirrelly Gambit To Make Up Lost Ticket Sales Due To Coronavirus...

Why American Didn’t Announce Details Of New Planned Doha Flight Yesterday

There are two paths American could take for a new flight from the U.S. to Doha. One is replacing existing Qatar Airways service from one of their hubs. The other is flying Seattle - Doha, which makes a lot of sense once Alaska Airlines joins oneworld and potentially severs its partnership with Emirates. But American needs that to fall into place first, and get agreement over subsidies for their new flight. Continue reading Why American Didn’t Announce Details Of New Planned Doha Flight Yesterday...

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. See story below. Good morningThe Covid-19 virus (it now has a name) has been enormously on my mind the last several weeks, and for very direct and personally impactful reasons.  To help clarify my thinking, I wrote a detailed and careful analysis of the present situation and the possible unfolding future, an...

One Restriction That Will Be Placed On Elites When Alaska Joins oneworld

If you are a oneworld sapphire member – think British Airways Silver – you get lounge access domestically within the U.S. even though American Airlines frequent flyers don’t. In fact oneworld sapphires, which is the mid-tier elite level, get American’s Flagship lounge (international business class lounge) access on U.S. domestic itineraries. American gets a carve-out in oneworld rules so they do not have to offer this to their own members. Continue reading One Restriction That Will Be Placed On ...

Alaska Airlines Apologizes. And I Like It.

Alaska Airlines had twice the usual number of baggage handlers call in sick since Friday morning, though the airline says this is not part of a coordinated job action. As a result many bags didn’t make it to their destination. That’s frustrating for customers, of course. What’s notable to me, though, is the Alaska Airlines apology. There’s nothing mealy mouthed about it. There’s no hedging. It’s not offered in the third person. Continue reading Alaska Airlines Apologizes. And I Like It....
