Coronavirus Safety: If You Must Fly, Here Are Some Tips To Do It Safely

(CNN) — Most of the country is sheltering in place and air traffic has slowed dramatically but there are still people who must fly.

Clobbered by coronavirus econ news? Here’s an in-depth, 90 day rewind

There’s just been a torrent of economic news since the first identification of patients with COVID-19 in Wuhan, China in early December 2019 until the declaration of a global pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) yesterday.

Iditarod looks for relevance as race across Alaska starts

By MARK THIESSEN ANCHORAGE, Alaska — When 57 mushers line up Sunday for the official start of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, it will be the second-smallest field in the past two decades. Only last year’s field of 52 was smaller. Interest in the world’s most famous sled dog race has waned in recent years, in part because of smaller cash prizes that make it difficult for mushers to compete in an expensive sport. Animal rights activists also have stepped up pressure on sponsors to drop their sup...

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...
