DLD 360: Not entirely as planned

November 18, 2021

This week’s episode is a little different. It’s just Fozz and Stephan, as Seth is soaking in all the avgeekery he can at the Dubai Airshow and there hasn’t been a ton of news.

Some of the highlights are:

  • Follow-up from Patreon supporter Lee on the A220 and all-business configurations across the ocean.
  • Pilots turning down extra holiday pay.
  • AA making cuts in NYC.
  • Rumors that British Airways will start London-Heathrow to Indianapolis and bring back some of their other thin routes in summer of 2022.
  • Alaska Airlines extending the 50% EQM bonus into next year and rumors of a status challenge in the first quarter.
  • The old Continental Presidential Plus card is dead and Fozz is heartbroken.
  • United Polaris lounges and American Airlines Flagship lounges are starting to re-open. Newark’s Polaris lounge will be open before Thanksgiving.

Seth will likely be coming in next week with a bunch of news out of Dubai, so we’ll see what the airshow has in the works for the aviation industry!
