What will the future of airline route networks look like? We dig deep into the past with special guest Ned Russell as we look to the future.
This week’s conversation is focused on the future of route networks, based on Ned’s recent TPG article. There’s some lively discussion among us and debate about whether coastal or central hubs are likely to recover first.
- easyJet’s founder and main shareholder is PISSED. His letters to the board are super fun to read, though.
- Marriott is facing another data breach and there are no real penalties so why really worry about such things?
- Alaska Airlines goes for limited milk run play, launching some routes that have all of us giddy, even knowing we won’t fly any of them.
- Many airlines extended status for a year, including United, Delta, Air Canada and Alaska Airlines. They all are doing it slightly different from each other, with some bringing more compelling plays to the table.

And, as always, lots more. Enjoy the show!
