We’re now into September. Or continuing the longest March ever. I’m still not sure which. However, it’s time for things to go on, with Last Week at Economy Class and Beyond.
Fees? Don’t need (some) of them…
US Carriers have been playing the follow-the-leader, with United Airlines first dropping domestic change fees. Delta, American and Alaska Airlines followed.
- United Airlines to drop US Domestic change fees!
- Delta Air Lines and American Airlines follow United Airlines. Changes fees are vanishing…
Wear a Mask!
- WestJet implements zero-tolerance face-covering policy – WestJet is no longer playing around when it comes to face coverings.
UK Travel Corridors
If you’re confused about the latest changes in travel corridors, you’re not alone. I’ve been trying to unpick the changes in travel as the four governments of the United Kingdom move out of lockstep and set their policies. Welcome to stupidity central.
- Scotland applies harsher self-isolation requirements for arrivals from Greece
- UK FCDO Travel Updates … It’s complex this week
A mixed week for the Middle Eastern carrier, with more routes coming back, but frequencies set to be cut.
- Emirates prepares to cut frequencies across its network
- Emirates to add three more destinations back to its network
- Avanti West Coast introduces at-seat ordering for onboard catering –
- Eurostar to skip calling at stations in Kent – If you live in Kent, be prepared to travel to London if you want to travel by train to Paris, Brussels or Amsterdam.
With uncertainty now ruling the air as even the biggest carriers start to draw back services due to a lack of demand and trying to find ways to stimulate travel, it’s going to be interesting how other carriers react.
If they can.
Until then – stay safe please!
