October 25, 2018

Can American Airlinesnew $1.6 Billion investment at LAX bring the carrier more business? Or is this just trying to keep up with others as that airport stretches the limits of what can be handled in a limited footprint?

Also in this episode:

  • SkyTeam Ties up with Hertz in an interesting extension of the alliance loyalty model
  • This guy did something stupid and it involved an airplane so it is getting far more news coverage than it should
  • British Airways jacked up fuel surcharges again, affecting some long-haul award bookings again. It is also adding a couple weekly flights to Charleston, South Carolina.
  • United is swapping around some booking classes, including how upgrades are processed, in advance of selling premium economy in the near future.
