Hey, DLD listeners: We need your help, far more than just putting up with our regular ramblings (of which there are plenty in this episode).
Lots of routes dropping in the coming months, thanks to crew shortages, shifting travel demand and maybe even fleet challenges. Another “mistake” fare scuttled and some talk about cabin density and how that translates to profits, too.

A(nother) loyalty partnership is dying and IATA admits it is slightly less relevant in one area. But plenty of new stuff coming to keep us interested.
Are more electronics bans coming? And why can the general public now buy in on a crazy charter route. More growth at SFO, a whoopsie on Air Force 1 and a Gogo giveaway, too!
Lots of topics this week but no title for the show…hopefully you’re willing to listen anyways.
