Weekly Airline News Roundup – Stand up for tall people

This week the airline industry took a beating because some of its planes have taken a beating from being in the air for decades (note: our average fleet age is five years).  Southwest became the poster child because of a five-foot-long crack found on one of its 737s. The discovery caused Southwest to ground a […]

Weekly Airline News Roundup – Evaluation

In some senses it was an action-packed week in the airline industry, particularly with regard to the devastating acts of nature in Japan, which caused first the halting of flights, followed by a return to air travel, and then a scramble to add flights to help people get out of the country. In most other […]

Weekly Airline News Roundup – Up, Up and Away!

The airline industry saw a good deal of action this week, from ongoing tension in the Middle East (and the not unrelated soaring oil prices), to consolidation announcements and new digs. The Bahamas is preparing for its new U.S. departures terminal while our partners over at Lufthansa showed off its new A380 service out of […]

Weekly Airline News Roundup – Slick

Central to everyone’s concerns in the airline industry this week is oil. Sadly, we’re not talking about tanning oil. Of course, as human beings we’re most concerned about the safety of everyone living amongst the unrest in Northern Africa and The Middle East, but the rapidly rising prices of oil due to the tension abroad […]

Weekly Airline News Roundup – Mounting Tension

This week brought with it what feels like mounting tension from both the nature and nurture sides of life. The biggest story this week is certainly the unrest in Egypt and the impact it is having on the rest of the world (including the airline industry). With yet another mixed precipitation weather event this week, […]

Weekly Airline News Roundup – Cashing Out

Some weeks have the distinctive feel of “beginning” or “end”; of triumph or defeat. This week in the airline industry, many companies announced their fourth quarter and annual earnings, letting the world know — and investors — what the next year will look and feel like. Southwest this week announced close to a half billion […]

Weekly Airline New Roundup – sNo’ More!

As if we haven’t seen enough already, this week brought more snow to the airline industry — and to the East Coast specifically — causing additional delays and cancellations from Augusta, Georgia up to Augusta, Maine. Virgin Atlantic risked having its aircraft seized this week after refusing to pay airport fees to Heathrow, claiming it […]

Weekly Airline News Roundup – Yin Yang

As is the case with many facets of our lives, optimism balanced negativity in the airline industry this week. As we come out of the snowpocalypse and into the beginning of a new year, we see that dark gives way to light, that the yin and yang are interconnected. Om mani padme hum. We saw […]

Weekly Airline News Roundup – Blizzard!

Need we say more? This week was all about the blizzard that dropped more than two feet of snow (and distress) on the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions, displacing more than a million travelers across the U.S. during the busiest travel week of the year. Here’s to a very happy and healthy (and possibly dryer) 2011! […]

Weekly Airline News Roundup – Not Even a Mouse

This was pretty quiet one as far as news weeks go in the airline industry. Usually there are more big news stories than we can possibly highlight in this humble little roundup, but perhaps tantamount to the holiday week, reporters’ eyes were turned to other things and not many a creature was flying, not even […]
