The semi-annual IATA seasonal schedule change happened last weekend, and it brings some fun and interesting new routes and slot opportunities to the industry.
Airlines raked in revenue in Q2, but not all of them reported a profit. And that raises a lot of bigger picture questions.
As if airport crowds and luggage SNAFUs aren’t enough, summer heat waves are adding to the challenges in travel.
