As award charts disappear is loyalty following them out the door? United Airlines will drop its award charts later this year for flights operated by the carrier and there’s a whole lot of discussion about what’s good and bad there. Including an interesting take on the “Excursionist Perk.”
Also in this episode:
- Boeing cut its 737 MAX production rate as the investigation into recent crashes continues. Work on fixing the software mistakes is ongoing as well.
- Virgin Atlantic unveiled its new A350 cabin and Fozz thinks Delta might’ve had something to say about its design.
- A listener asked us about travel insurance. We had very bad answers. Don’t be like us. Also, we’re going to work on getting better answers soon.
- An Austrian Airlines plane was robbed on the runway at Tirana International Airport on Tuesday afternoon in a scene reminiscent of the Brussels Heist of 2013 and, to a lesser extent, the Lufthansa Heist of 1978.
