Welcome to episode 13 of the PointsHoarder podcast. We’ve got a lot of news to cover in this edition. At the time of the recording I thought it was mostly good news. Listening to it again as I went through the editing there seems to be a bit more depressing than I had originally remembered. We’ve got new alliance members and partnerships starting up and a few more mistakes/”sales” being shut down. New routes (and almost a new hub) from Delta and some trouble with keeping planes flying safely.
