Weekly Airline News Roundup – Slick

Perhaps due to the recovering economy or just plain temerity in some cases, the airline industry seemed to step up its game this week and acted a little bit slick (and not necessarily in a bad way).

Weekly Airline News Roundup- A Return to Normalcy

This week saw a return to normalcy of sorts in the airline industry. Air travel across the Atlantic resumed close to normal operations following last week’s volcanic eruption (though not without having lost a whopping $1.7 billion). The irony of Icelandair operating while others weren’t wasn’t lost on us! US Airways ceased its chats with […]
