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.
The Paris Air Show was full of interesting news again this year, though much of it felt incomplete. Antwerp is an interesting destination and lots of legal stuff happening in North America, too.
Hot weather, hot pizza on board and hot takes on lots of other news this week…
How do you fight the clock against viral media? And is there ever really a good time for international action that isolates a country? Plus a new long Dreamliner route and animals on planes.
Loyalty isn’t just about hotels and airlines. Casinos run some of the largest and must lucrative programs out there. And, not surprisingly, there are people who like to play that game just like those who play the travel game.
What’s next for the A380? Delays in opening at Dubai and tracking new jets, too.

Charter cuts, not Leaving Las Vegas, seat poachers popped and a black hole over North Korea. Plus thoughts on where to go for Holy Week next year.
