Boeing 737 Max Returns
"Look a big part of not only today but over the next several weeks and months will be the reception of the flying public to the 737 mets. How comfortable are they getting back on board yesterday. Ipsos reuters released a poll where they talked with travelers in a couple of interesting things here. First of all just thirty. Seven percent of those questioned were familiar with the two crashes involving the seven thirty seven minutes one in late two thousand eighteen another one in early two thousand nineteen people who were questioned fifty seven percent when asked about the max understanding all the issues that have taken place over the last year and a half two years. They say they're unlikely to find the plane. Thirty seven percent. Say they're willing to find the max but they wanna wait a while they wanna give it six months when it's in service when they don't feel like there any potential issues that might pop up for american airlines. Getting people comfortable starts today now. They're going to be flying. The max daily between new york and miami this first flight going up to laguardia. It's about half full coming back later. Today it's almost completely full. They have twenty four seven thirty-seven max. They're gonna feather into the schedule in the first half of this year. Did you take a look at shares of american airlines all of the airline stocks moving a little bit higher. Not necessarily just because of the max coming back in service but a number of other issues regarding the stimulus package being passed and the belief that perhaps will be coming out of the pandemic soon. We've talked about this. For some time boeing lost a lot of orders this year for the 737 macs more than a thousand were taken off the books but they have logged ninety eight. Max orders this month. Guy so for boeing. The hope is that this is the beginning of turning the page. More completely with the max in terms of starting to fill out the production schedule over twenty twenty one and then into twenty twenty two

American Airlines to fly first Boeing 737 Max plane from Miami in nearly 2 years
"At Miami International Airport are boarding a 7 37 Max, take off. Four take off. It's an American Airlines jet that will go from M I a toe LaGuardia after two deadly crashes involving its state of the art plane across there's a Boeing 737. Max ate the same. Boeing reworked the Max and now is his CEO Dave Calhoun. I think we come out of here leaner, faster, smarter, better, most importantly, safe. But among families of the 346 people who died in the two crashes. Don't trust it. Elena Lopez Lewis and six other family members have written to the FAA asking that the max be Grounded again while acknowledging that I don't think that fake really cares about what we have to say, either Jim early in ABC News The
Boeing 737 Max returns to U.S. skies after nearly 2 years
"Well the first commercial flight of a Boeing 7 37 Max aircraft in nearly two years, said to take place today on American Airlines. Max departs Miami for New York's LaGuardia Airport this morning, ABC. Jim Ryan joins us Live right now with more so, Jim, let's talk a little bit about the criteria. What did the FAA use here to deem that the Boeing 7 37 Max is ready to fly again? I must say it is really Sam from Boeing, a redesign of the max eight aircraft retraining of pilot and, of course, the FAA did its own investigation and its own infections of the Max eight aircraft. But it's been less than two years now completely redesigned plane now extremely complex that some are saying that it was with the grounding was not long enough that there should have been further investigations. Some family members of the hundreds of people who died in those two crashes in 2008 and 2920 18 2019 say that they want the plane to remain grounded on grounds that they say there were improprieties in the inspection process into the training of those pilots. So no doubt, not just those families, Jim. But the entire aviation world of the entire world, for that matter is going to be watching this flight. And I would imagine subsequent flights with 7 37 Max very closely over the course of the next few weeks and months, And is there some sort of a time frame? That they're giving this and then do they plan on expanding these flights in the not too distant future? Well, at least in an American airlines, you know they're going to continue using this aircraft United in Southwest are other huge customers of the 7 37 Max. They don't plan to fly their new aircraft until early to mid 2021 next year. Alaska Airlines has just ordered several dozen of the aircraft. So yeah, Ryanair, Also Europe's air air air of Azaz decided it wants to order more swell, so there's no real timetable. That they all have agreed upon. It's the airline's making their own decisions on when they want to ramp it up again. So at this point to your you've got the flight from Miami to LaGuardia. Is that the only one today of the 7 37, Max? Or is that just the first one out of the gate today and that there might be Mork coming up either today or or throughout the week? No plans for today. But throughout the rest of the week, If that seems like that, like 7 18 Miami to LaGuardia will fly using the max eight, so at least we know that those will be in the air. The interestingly I talked with the widow of a man who died in the Ethiopia crash. She says that passengers should be checking as they make reservations to see what kind of aircraft they are flying on something that most people don't even think about. But she says that people should be doing that for their own peace of mind. She's not convinced of the safety of the 7 37 Maxie, and she thinks that past me or should make an important decision about whether they want to fly on it. Today's flight. We don't know whether it's full or not, but these air paying passengers of American Airlines Miami

Thousands Of Airline Workers Facing Unemployment As Aid Package Stalls In Congress
"Is the airline industry. Air travel demand is down a wop a whopping 70% from last year and tens of thousands of airline pilots, flight attendants, a reservation agents and other industry workers are poised to lose their paychecks next week if Congress doesn't extend federal aid for airlines. NPR's David Shaper reports. A nation's airlines are at a crossroads. Or maybe I should say cross runways at the start of the year. On average about 2.5 million people were flying every day. Now that's plummeted to around 700,000, and until there are widely available vaccines or treatments for covert 19. Most passengers won't be coming back any time soon. You can't run an airline that a third the size it was and expect to keep all the same people. Elaine Backer is an airline industry analyst for investment Bank Cowan. I feel like in this country we've shifted from flattening the curve to waiting for a cure or a vaccine, and and that just means the pain is going to be longer in the cares act, Congress provided $25 billion a direct payroll support to the airlines so they could keep paying their employees through the end of September. Already, tens of thousands of workers have taken early retirement or other incentives to leave their jobs. But now the airlines air notifying another 75,000 that they may be out of a job. October 1st getting that for letter in the mail. Completely shocking. Isaiah Gonzalez is an aircraft maintenance worker for united at New York's LaGuardia Airport. The first thing that came to mind with how I was going to support my family people who depend on me. How was I going to keep the income? I was going to keep the family afloat, and Gonzalez is not alone. Me. Getting fellow is like this devastating. Tony Valentine is a reservations agent for United Airlines in Detroit. I have six that depend on me Arrange it age from 2 to 22, Valentine says. That's a houseful with a whole lot of bills. In addition, she says her husband suffered a serious stroke last year. And knowing that I may not have insurance to finishes is like I feel like I failed often at loggerheads. The unions representing these and other airline employees are now in rare harmony with airline CEOs in pressing Congress for a six month extension of the payroll support program. The industries in dire straits Nick Calio heads the industry group Airlines for America at one point Passenger traffic was down 96%. It's now down 70%. Still, one third of our planes are parked not flying, and we're losing $5 billion a month. The airlines unions and bipartisan majorities in Congress agree that the six months of payroll support worked in keeping airline employees off of unemployment rolls. In the tens of thousands of layoffs now might send shockwaves through the economy. Missouri Congressman Sam Graves is the ranking Republican on the House Transportation Committee. We absolutely cannot let an entire sector of the economy collapse, and that's exactly what will happen if we do not get this extension done yet. The airline funding is tied to broader Corona virus relief that the White House and Congress cannot agree upon. Here's American airline CEO Doug Parker. I just can't believe that we may not be able to do the right thing. Simply because our elected officials can't come to any sort of compromise agreement were better in that. Still, someone of providing billions Warren taxpayer money doesn't just put off the inevitable as airlines will need to restructure to match the reduced demand. Legislation that would extend payroll support for the airlines was introduced in the Senate this week. But if it isn't passed soon, thousands of airline employees may be out of work One week from today. David Shaper NPR news
Big airlines fight with smaller ones over airport rights

FAA plans to extend the current waiver to use it or lose it rules regarding slots and Kennedy and LaGuardia airports in New York and Reagan National near Washington.

"laguardia" Discussed on Dots, Lines & Destinations
"To experiment is just starting to see some penetration on the long haul. Elsie market. Yeah There is no long haul. Is this six to eight hours. Ten twelve so far. But you know it's it's happening Genera which is a subsidiary of Korean has some triple seven's that they're flying on longer routes there's also some seven thirty sevens from them in from a couple of others that are flying things like Bussan Singapore which is like a six or seven hour flight- on the seven thirty forty seven so there is sort of this transition in the market there. That's starting to understand the idea about you can't fly six seven eight ten Hours on a low cost carrier and going cheaper so I could see that eventually sort of becoming valuable in the market to have something like Norwegian show out. Yeah the unit save us. You're thinking something always going to say. I mean to China taught sister said yet to China is where all the Chinese character dropping the price but like Japan still very expensive right so there's opportunity Japan soul I would even say fraud vacation. Destinations into Thailand added to Vietnam and places like remember the Norwegian already flies to Thailand. But you can do that through the southerly route without such a penalty in terms of time around and such. So it's really. It's sort of Hong Kong and up that whole eastern seaboard of China through to Japan and Korea. Where you need the trans? Siberian buren routes basically everywhere Finnair flies. It makes a ton of money arrogant That's where he wants to try to start competing because especially if they've live from there air Scandinavian hubs their so far north. To begin with which is why it works for Finnair as well. Those flights are actually shorter. Than you'd think like Helsinki to Shanghai they are Beijing is only like eight or nine hours not the twelve or thirteen that it is from Frankfurt yet. I mean it's crazy. How much Helsinki cuts off on the floor? Making coming up those numbers but they're close together not that far away. It is pretty wild. How much difference it is just going to Honduras? Did you find those numbers I I do know that. Delta apply for Minneapolis. Shanghai Not Beijing So that was one of the two that came up. I haven't found the united one. Catch do vigorous number was second year. I WANNA say Shanghai Beijing Yeah could be both going to Beijing makes sense Going Shanghai have this story here. Saw Shanghai Jakobsen at again The It is just shing Shanghai Beijing Guangzhou that's the three tier once not for until this is only once. Yeah United wants to fly a second flight from Newark to Shanghai your us so those are those are where the Chicago fascinating indigo. The Indian low-cost GEAR INTO IS INDIGO. Is that he said INDIGO INDIGO INDIGO They they want to buy three hundred more eighty twenty s. Nieto's want to or ordered they've ordered that's a little more than just wanting to buy. Yeah I mean it's not like they're dreaming about it. I mean I dream about owning three hundred eighty three twenty s. But they're out there trying to find some more rex. Virgin America Virgin is best yard in Portland is way bigger than I thought. Orange I feel like right about here. We need the Sanford and son too. So what's the story here. Though I mean what are they trying to do. They just expanding that quickly. They need that many planes they are massive and looking to grow further Part of it is gross. Part of it's actually fleet renewal okay. They are sort of the Singapore Airlines Airlines approach to aircraft utilization which is when that thing turns ten years. I'll get the hell out of here because it must be nasty which is expensive but it not necessarily so they float on Air India plants? This is what happens after ten years. Oh my gosh like ten days you have to say it. It looks like ten years but it's only been a week less than ten month old seventy seven and could not believe how it was. But that's different problem still the yeah. The goal so is Fleet renewal plus expansion. They are already the largest carrier in India by market share that they run something like fifty percent of the seats in the domestic market. Get and they're growing internationally as well now. So part of it is all Nieto's but his three twenty three twenty one and three twenty one. Xl Ours and so he played an accident lar- at of Mumbai or Delhi. Your range gets most of Europe nonstop and most of Southeast Asia nonstop. Not Not quite. You can get almost as far as can Australia Perth. So there's there's a lot of range there that expands out when you start putting if they do high density model then who knows how far to go depends on if they do business class idea or not Yada Yada Yada. But the number of destinations you can cover is pretty significant. So speaking of Tokyo Japan Korea again for example. Now all of a sudden range do you think they're gonna you know is part of their goal with the fleet renewal title to say expand into Europe. Is that something you you think. They have They're trying already not going so well just because the market's not therefore war I think it's three twenty like via Kuwait to Istanbul or something like that indigo. who was talking to a hub it spicy spice jet charges you crack but you know that could be just as stupid as Air Arabia? Eddie Hod partnering to start a new subsidiary to to feed the long haul and we talked about that last week or the week before just like another some stupid things. Going on there Yeah Indigo flies to Istanbul now. I don't yet one stop They also have had problems with weight limitations on the westbound flights and having to skip to not bring any of the baggage with them for a few days. Because you know that happens. Can't imagine why wouldn't go over. Well Orbach seats blocking seats. They know going in but like if it happens last minute that the winds are out of forecasting right. This is what happens you know set up set up a hobby Bob in Gander. When seven five to go have the race we gotTA stop? Wow crazies. Obviously doing that nonstop will be better. You're absolutely Interesting still love planes and it's already on the three twenty one so Scott some of the range but not ours. Also part of the problem. Is that the APP completely Pakistani airspace. So there's a somewhat circuitous routing recently. Doha August I mean all places that seems odd. Since it's not on anyone's favorite list in the Middle East yeah when when you're being forced rerouted due to closures of airspaces. Don't seem to strange place to choose to do it. Yeah Yeah. American Airlines Premium Y awards partner awards their online cited. So you can book these on their website. Now prices are decent you know. Oh it's not just split the Difference Between Coaching Business Okay Some are a little higher. Some are a little lower than halfway But none of them seemed terribly unreasonable to me. I think the provin windfalls. I mentioned this when we were chatting about in off. Law are not offline puts before we were talking as far as partners that offer premium economy Emotionally it's British Airways with spaces. Are you're looking at fuel. Surcharges right emmy. Kathy is the only other cur can think of the premiums two and channel so Catherine Jolly thinker. I know cafes fuel-filter jealous also So that they're not terrible options. Because I actually. I was looking at awards the other day trying to figure out how to get them from India a couple months ago Gel had space in India. Tokyo Tokyo Boston. Which would a nice easy routing? The problem I ran into there is a book. I'm using an advantage because these words didn't exist yet and be as not a legitimate routing by American can standards Americans routing rules suck for India. You have to go over transatlantic transpacific or via Hong Kong but they allow come now sail allow cafe or American via Hong Kong and from Hong Kong. You can actually fly Sri Lankan via Colombo into India but otherwise you can't do you have to fly via Europe and you can't connect in the Middle East even between India and the US if you also connect in Europe. He can't double connect if awesome. I actually am I am delicacy. I'm flying India Abu Dhabi London Boston and end up having to awards. That's ex- ended up. Oh being it's moderately annoying. Basically voluntarily downgraded I to business on the London to Boston segment and I think eight five thousand extra points. Thanks for that luxury. But I wasn't going to shell out another thirty or forty thousand points us to fly I for that segment. Yeah and some. That was only a couple of hundred dollars in taxes houses and Barron fuel surcharge for that. So don't ask no fun. person the math undertaken on all man. Maybe not I was thinking about that. I was I don't think it's likely for two of us but you know we'll see we'll never know why I finally cool. That's the apartment trickle down is at a award is well. It is what do they have the apartments on trees okay. The the new New Orleans airport has opened but by the time this comes out yes it I've saw I've seen pictures. It looks very nice. Looks like a big airport. Yeah it looks like an improvement. We're seeing more and more American. Airports get upgrades a few of them. We're finally figuring it out. Yeah I mean you've got Kansas City now under construction What else Portland's getting the new terminal? Lax is choose reconstruction going on. I mean there is a lot of money being invested in the airports. Part of the problem is unless you have enough space. Aura Aura. Incredibly creative plan to literally tear down and rebuild some of the busiest airports. It's really hard a lot of them just filled in the space because they needed all the passively get didn't leave room for for like shuffled around to try to drop you kind of need the one empty square so you can always be rebuilding somewhere and moving things around into the empty junk. Don't Oh you guys think this is a waste of resources when they should really be focusing increase capacity particular at the Busier Ports House so oh La Guardia is a great example. Why waste money on the terminal? It's just you're just holding people hostage that much longer. He'll be at least you'll be comfortable waiting out the inevitable inevitable air traffic control delays right. But why not reduce slots by twenty percent and get more fights it out on time because the airlines throw fit with the passengers passengers. Why would why would the passengers terrific fewer destinations your flights? I am a big advocate. Dense airport Five fifty planes for starters. I up gauge that. You can have more seats but went me. Then tell the folks in wherever they have a flight to New York City basking by made an airline isn't going to operate one hundred seat plane where there's only forty people flying every time right but you could be seventy is a reasonable number right there. There's I don't think there's there might them sure there has been I've yet to find a destination that served once a day and only once a day from any of the airports into the small towns in any as a strong term so be careful like New York City airports. Yeah yeah add to New York. City are portrayed as like if you go to La right there any of the airports any of the smaller airports they serve. I don't think there's really any destination there only being circling today. I mean Laguardia's an interesting one because it is a lot of point to point traffic. As opposed connections most of the passengers who cannot overlook Guardia probably could.

"Of european routes now but some of those eighty seven so nothing to buy the new service purpose protocols are for all the flights so so you know i think we're about to reach the apex of business now that everyone's gonna be on why direct access and what have you so the question is. When did we start how long before you start seeing premium economy continue get enhanced are using enhanced in the good way or bad way too good away the good way what we're talking about. Airlines dude enhanced usually means the problem. Yes trichet to shape how business class come to exist exist right it was because i classes becoming too expensive and so the airlines saw an opportunity to introduce something between coach and business sure right and and over the last fifteen years for all practical purposes most business class products have become pretty much first class and so it's it's only a matter of time till we now see premium economy start seeing more and more enhancements so that's my question yeah well. It's creating the premium. Economy goes from a thirty forty inch pitch lounger something that sort of an angle flat for more pitch i yeah <hes> either window or aisle no middle seat that would be an issue and i think that's arguably we had that sort of an air new zealand <hes> <hes> it's original premium economy was that weird like horse not horseshoe sort of chevron shaped you sort of angled away from each other thing <hes> whites leads to to across the plane and then it turned out that it was a relatively inefficient use of the space and people didn't like it anyway 'cause you couldn't talk to the person next to you. In which went maybe you want to maybe not but it was it was just weird and they ended up as a putting into four to relatively generic business class instead. We'll say the united states the united premium also fluid week ago or so to l._a. So bad product good product this mental seats. There is no excuse but they are. How long will they be there my question. I don't think we'll get to know middle seats for awhile. I mean hell there's still plenty of business. Class products with middle seats absolutely absolutely absolutely right but as so you know what the shift we're gonna see fewer and fewer corporations in my business costs right the companies that have in their contracts that will fly in businesses..

"So I'm looking at the I they do I'm looking at this does this when when it switches to premium economy on March thirtieth San Francisco, Beijing will be seven seven two. The list is on March thirtieth Newark to Hong Kong Mumbai television Tokyo until only I'm one of the two flights and then San Francisco to Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Taipei Tel-Aviv and the Rita seven seven w so. Of those is type joint venture out or not okay in Tel Aviv is not right. So Rita is Hong Kong is not Frankford is the my is I believe with with with. I believe that's part of the joint venture. Okay. I think but yeah, it's a mix there. Whereas when I think about the Sydney routes, I think about San Francisco Singapore, I feel like those much of a premium economy markets. Yeah. I could see on the I can see Sydney and Singapore both for weight restrictions, and they're still really long time to spend on a plane. There's a lot less price pressures on those markets too. In theory, at least. So since we you mentioned tone Vive, I have a question. How's the seven eight ten doing newer Tel-Aviv? I didn't think it had the legs to do something that long. I guess it's at the edge of the range. I don't know. What's the numbers? I thought it was supposed to be like a forty five hundred mile range. No. Thousand miles realize it was going to be that loan. I thought it was going to be much much shorter. Now, it's it's it's shorter than the dash nine in range the longer airplane, but show. Specifications. Here we go range at maximum sixty four hundred miles for the ten so this the dash eight does seventy three hundred miles seventy fifty five. The dash line is seventy six thirty five. And then the dash ten is sixty four thirty. Cool. And it's got a puppet figure out for NorTel Davis. It's. Hundred miles. Yes, it's not it's not even pushing it there. But I think it's just because the tagging views thus far as it's a regional plane. It's more regional than a long distance plan. I thought the Rangers. What shorter? Yeah. So Tel Aviv is a hair under five thousand nautical miles and the plane can do sixty five hundred sixty four hundred. So it's it's not a regional plane. It's a bigger plane. That's not meant for the long thin routes. But it is it is arguably displacing some of the three thirty stuff, right? Starts to push into eighth eighth thirty three hundred range, which is. Yeah. Three thirty three twenty or two. Three hundred two hundred. I was thinking the three hundred based on cabin size and passenger count. Okay. But the three hundred dozen to like the two hundred much further between three hundred is bigger. See depending on which direction you're looking at it there. But anyway, yeah, do we have anything else to talk about tonight? Oh pain field. United's gonna fly there too. When you. Yeah. They finally publisher schedules. The only doing Denver doing Denver answer Francisco into a both. So San Francisco actually, competitive market. Denver will not that's the only competitive market of pain so already anything else. No. All right. I'm going to be on the inaugural at a pain, Alaska. If you want to join the thing sold out now, so probably hit when February probably not. Yeah. I I think it's sold out. But anyway listener for their give a hollow we might be having happy hour Vegas after we land. It'll be I mean MVP goal you seventy five case, I could probably bump someone else and force your favorite seat assignments, just like a global services, right?

"Flights are March thirty twenty nineteen which is the switch over of schedules that weekend. What would be interesting to me? The I had a seasonal change. So it's a good time to start launching new products and fairs all the seventy seven ten we'll have it because every delivered that way the other types that are going to have it initially our triple seven two hundred three hundreds and not all of them. But enough of them that United is comfortable guaranteeing that quipped planes will fly on certain routes. And I, you know, I guess arguably is the one other thing to consider is like is this bad news for the people that are used to getting it for free. I mean, they looking right now the nine of the planes already have premium economy, seven two's. Okay. How many this ws do, you know? Yeah. Right. That that'd be my only thing like five. Okay. Five of fourteen from. So then they've got a couple months ago few more done. I mean, it's they won't all be done. But enough top right? The routes they need or maybe they will all be done. And it's well, I mean that has to be a huge. I mean, they have a ton of seventy I'm trying to them someone ws. That's it is seven ws will be done. But how many of the seven ws aren't doing that many of the JV routes? No. But they are doing they are planes that are set to be running on this. And it's a decent number of the rows that they operate, right? That's my point. So you get them done. I don't know. I mean, it's certainly on all of that metal grow over time. But and there's a couple of the routes that are April and may launch is not March for entry into service. So they have they have knowledge that there's gonna be some delays in some of them, actually, adding the service and getting all the planes configured. But it'll happen gammy they're doing two or three a month right now or two three month two or three conversions at a time. Two lines running at it. The and it is three a month. They are claiming that a plane enter service with premium economy, and or Pereira's every ten days. Still which are new deliveries conversions at this point. Right. I mean, you think of the numbers six threes. Six fours seventy it's gonna take twenty twenty. They've been up front about that. It. What's interesting to me is they're doing. They're not doing preemies commun-, the seventy seven the seven eight nine that is where I think it would be the most fiscal sense. I mean, they are going to do it eventually, but they're not doing it up front, and they're not even prioritizing. Yeah. My guess is they're not prioritizing. There's too many already deliver that don't have it and so- mixing and matching us in good. And so you go for the planes that are going to be retrofit sooner. Right. This those seven six threes are gonna get retrofit faster the seven two are gonna get retrofit faster. And so, but the number seven eight nine is pretty similar to the number seven seven ws. I I w is a much more compelling place to offer it. Clearly, they think that, but I'm thinking like all the Sydney routes all the Asia routes, the seven eighths to I feel like those would be a better return the seven seven to lose. I stand by that. Okay. I think the seven w one of the it's partly compelling because they've got the ten across and there's density there that the total number of seats. They still get a little bit of extra. I know this. I know that the seventy seven are nine abreast and equally uncomfortable. But I think there's a value proposition selling the extra upgrade on the seven ws and also just the total number passenger to get on board works better for, but I kind of like seventy would benefit from a little bit better range or fewer block seats and whatnot on some of the longer routes, right? And I think, but more importantly, I think more people would pay for it on those routes. Gonna pull up the list, and you're gonna make me to work which the seven W routes. I know it's United Hong Kong. Frans one nor Kong in March. But newer Tel-Aviv today. San Francisco, Hong Kong, San Francisco Taipei sometime sense. It's good into Prideaux. Beijing Shanghai at times, those not the something ws sometimes sometimes it's two sometimes it comes and goes, they're not..

"If you're doing mileage upgrade, and you you'll you'll clear into whichever one opens I and so if only premium economy opens that you you basically it's sort of how to do some the other stuff that you pay the full price up front, but if you only end up in the lower cabin they refund back the difference, which is nice. And you. Thing about say, there's the mileage basil crates certificates don't do that though. If you use a global upgrade from on an international fair, and you only end up pretty mcconaughey. Your GP was considered consumed. So that's you could argue that's bad. It'd be nice if refunded a are Pugh getting rid of those sort of fewer them. Well issue fewer. But that's the thing. Right. I was thinking is it did they decide to go down that route because they will be more the upgrades clear better chance clearing in us. Make it a more valuable currency. I also I also would say that it's nice you have to start with the GP you. And then you get an Arpey you back. Yeah. I I sorta because then you can't game it and just keep throwing to us to get into premed Connie. But I can also see many reasons that will happen. But that was the other thing they're doing is. They're going to be. It was I gonna say there's the mileage upgrades there's this certificate s- GPU on an economy fare below w will now be eligible for premium economy. So you can buy a cheap seat and upgraded on me with GPO, which cool. Yeah. Yeah. A couple of little givebacks in there on a couple really nice things. I do. Of course, we don't know the price of what the awards are yet. I just checked the doesn't not seem that. There's that. The numbers are published yet. So not not ready yet. But it'd be nice, and they're still it sounds like they're still will be a co pay in some cases for premium economy operates which I still think this shitty. But we'll be co pays from. I mean all fares are just some fares. TVD? I imagine some not all I mean, even today the upgrades to business class fares. Not all so the question is whether it's the same right right now, why am beat don't pay a co pay. Right. The top two. And so it may just be that those to take and the other ones are smaller. Maybe you have the have the co pay involved for the regulars like cheaper fares are five hundred fifty dollars plus twenty thousand points between the US in Europe. And so maybe it drops down to two seventy five plus ten thousand points, which honesty's a pretty cheap in some ways. A pretty cheap upgrade, right? The kind of point to that is how much difference. What's the difference.

Or like, I guess this is old enough that maybe that wasn't the issue like they were already Chettiar you'd never go. After the big ones, you go for the little ones because they Lynn vest less. Yeah. Yeah. That's right. And then the other question that comes up is both VM in star door out large portions of infrastructures outsource to three-letter company how much liability do they carry right? That's one of the problems of all these outsourcing is you don't even full chain of custody. Yeah. That's bad and stuff that. Other bad news must say here. Jowl pilot and you're in London to go out drinking tonight. I'm thinking no guy got sentenced to ten months in jail. He and he didn't go down alone. Now, the pilots showed up to work drawn in London for jail, the CEO and another executive took a ten or twenty percent pay-cut for three months. That's got us. Yeah. Which is apparently a common sort of show contrition in Japan to give up that money that way. But. One of the things that was phenomenal. To me is I was doing a little bit of reading, and I had no idea to country Japan has no legal requirement for alcohol levels for pilots. It's an airline by airline discretion. Interesting. Something seems off with that. Yeah. I mean, either way this guy was in violation of all of them. Right. Yeah. Every standard that including his own companies. But yeah, that is an interesting you'd think that the regulators would have a rule on that. Well in house, they're not a global standard for my Anna. I added doesn't set rules. Okay. But they work with airlines encourage setting, right? Yes. And they're lobbying their lobbyists. So they can work towards trying to make things happen and standardizing some of these things and making it easier to you know, have the stuff work around the world consistently. But they don't set the rules. This is one of those things that you'd think they would push pretty hard to be like guy. Like, it doesn't matter that you think this is stupid. This is if we want to be you gotta get ahead of this. And come out and say, this is what the rule should be. This is where we all wanna be becomes reflective of the full industry. Yes, you're correct. It is a little surprising that I added doesn't have a stronger position on that. But it's because they they don't get set rules, and I get that. But you would think that this would be one of those things where they take a stance. Maybe. Well, you know, I I always would have thought that airlines for America. The US sort of lobbyist group are US minus delta these days would have taken a stronger position of I guess we should actually properly report. How all of our airlines are performing because then we can compete fairly against each other. And they didn't want to and they fight all the DOT rules. So do they only exist if the Middle East carriers and the DOT but that the wanted Middle Eastern faded? They needed some new 'cause I don't know that was just a mess. So Brexit, quote least we'll still have fights between the US and your England and all the airlines will be allowed to participate in Bermuda. Too. Is dead. Remains said could you imagine if they resurrected Bermuda to that was the outcome? We talked about this at an episode a little while back. So the good news is that the US and the UK have agreed on a post Brexit, bilateral air services agreement that is more or less the same as today. So it's still open skies. It's doesn't restrict that Bermuda to the prop one of the big problems. From you to is that only two airlines were allowed to fly to and from Heathrow from both the US from the UK, and that's a problem for the US carriers because there's more than two now. There's three. The UK. It was the same too. But yeah, delta basically would have really screwed if they'd lost their slots at Heathrow because Bermuda coming back to life, but one of the so amusing. Yeah. I mean, it would it would have been awful amusing though, like train wreck style. I mean, it's not the good kind of fun not necessarily because they would probably just shift a lot of it to virgin right on..

"If they did that with their drop the partnership because they'd have tar. You know, I I don't know if they would because they've unless they were forced to kit. Don't do dimension would because as long as. When he's eating Seattle. Yeah. Like you said they play the field. They they don't really care. I guess the the reason to join his connect partner as if they are comfortable with the level of IT investment. It helps them integrate the existing partnerships. They have better one of the big problems. Alaska Airlines has their IT integration with their existing partners pretty crappy this can both work to the advantage of and disadvantage of passengers depending on what games you're trying to play unwilling to play, but you know, not all the systems are properly late. And so a decent amount of what happens is sort of good faith effort. Oh, this is what they said happen. Sure fine. It's not worth our effort to try to check it to make sure. And so that that can be good and bad. If they, you know, maybe it costs them some money to build the integration tie into whatever. One world call is there so integrated backbone network, but if that lets them reduce fraud, maybe it's worth it. How would that help? I mean sounds like most the front of the hit comes from the mileage redemption side, not from earning. Maybe. I'm not sure how much I should say on the air. But there is fraud in both ways. Yeah. Not not all this properly linked. Well. Yeah. That I know so mech me back. Let's talk about a couple of messes since we've talked about so many positive things so far. Who do you think has all of your Starwood slash Marriott? Data now. Some thirteen year old kid living out of his parents basement five hundred five hundred million. Five hundred million people exposed across four years. Yeah lot. It's interesting to me about that a lot of people like how much of this. Did they disclose during the merger talks? Do the mergers talk started two years ago? They didn't know about until September. Like, they didn't. Yes, it was happening during the merger talk. But they didn't know about it. Well, but here's the thing. Right. Like, that's the story. I mean, that's sort of what they're saying. I mean, I almost wonder if this was an inside job. Really? Yeah. Keep going that long. Yeah. That's an interesting take break because here's the thing through the merger process. There would have been a full audit you'd think right either. They hired really about auditors. Sure, or John or someone hit it from the turn it off and hit it from the others. And then turn it back on. Yeah. And the comment about having encryption keys is the other telling thing. Well, yeah. I mean who you'd have to get something incredibly incredibly poorly compromised system, or well compromise. I guess depending on which angle you wanna take on that to be able to get increase or you'd have to have access to the keys. Point. Either way. I mean, I saw a mentioned from someone online the other day. It was like, you know, I have all the security on my thing. I do to factor this, and I do that. And whatever at the end of the day doesn't matter because the companies who actually hold all the data screw it up. And I'm out here doing everything I candidate ended up not doing what they should have. And I get screwed either way. Which is not right. That doesn't mean like stop worrying about two factor. Authentication all those other things, but it was an interesting take. But this is we see we're seeing more and more of these breaches in the travel industry. And I really do believe that one of the major causes of this is the this jointed infrastructure. These companies have been using for so long, but it's all duct tape and bubble gum. Some baling wire in there too. I'm sure and it's catching up with them. None of them will actually make the proper investment to do the right thing. Yeah. Well, I mean, especially in the Marriott Starwood now that they are the biggest right today pass that has ice J into or maybe accord still bigger, I don't know in terms of rooms. I guess depends..

"And so that's what's interesting to me about the Royal Marach situation is like what major business centers is it bringing into the fold Qatar Airways arguably brought the Middle East and brought some sort of work arounds for India to Africa, which are rapidly growing major business centers. But not the biggest yet. But like what flow is Royal Marach serving for the company at this point. I don't know million dollar question. Yeah. I mean, that's on the heels of even I think it was the CFO from Alaska saying that they would consider joining joining one world connect partner. Yes. Which was also pretty interesting. I'm also, okay. They are for. Yeah. One of the other interesting things, I think it was at the I added conference in Sydney this last this past year in summer twenty teen or whatever June twentieth. Teen where someone from one moral said that they only take sky trucks. You have to be tracks for start even be considered which is a noxious in some ways. But shirk surprised that might be considered. So our be a there. Well, three newly considered. There anything they're nowhere near sky treks for. American Airlines is a three star. And I'm looking for now, but ROY Marach believe it or not at a four star airline Richards airline as well customer rating five out of ten. Just a friendly reminder that guy Trek's ratings are bullshit. But yeah. So that's interesting. I think honestly, the Alaska connect membership thing is more interesting than Royal rock. Joining. Yes. And so that was something mentioned by one of the executives in their recent investor briefing last week. I remember correctly just it was sort of slip slip it into the conversation at one point. It makes sense. They they like to play the field. They were very. Generous and friendly with everybody. But it's to the point now where they got kicked out most SkyTeam partners. They lost or the useful once they lost because of delta. They have a couple star lines. Couple independent a couple one world, but they were pretty close with American had cut some of those ties because of antitrust off with the mergers. Could they up there be a and some of the other plays? And then you come you come back to the same. The bigger question that you started this conversation with earlier is does the alliance matter for them versus just being a bilateral partner? The kind of the the executive spoke already said that made a comment that there's there wouldn't join as a full member bite as a cost too much and the benefits are there. So that was pretty telling, but the question becomes what do they gain by joining one world as connect partner when they already have be a cafe and FinnAir Jau as San and have, you know, good collectively with other partners other parts of the globe. Right. As the one they have the most limited relationship now. Yeah. I mean, I guess it helps them on word into some parts of Asia in Africa. How one world is necessarily strong in those places, but it gets a few extra other connections..

"I don't not really because they really the they're owned by same corporate entity. But there's no other you wouldn't know their own by Singapore. I mean, there's a lot of code shown a lot of passenger flow. Right. But I mean, there's a lot of that with it's also questionable. Whether it's accessible true. There's a lot of great that's been like they didn't have tiger that they had to consolidate. And then they're trying to figure out the moving a bunch of routes between SilkAir, and scoot and trying to figure out how to make that all work. So. Yeah. I think I think route has been a standout success on that front. Certainly has been successful. So so maybe June downing it's just going out for reboot. Okay. Jute renamed to scoot. Maybe. Back to alliances. One world is adding a new member on Wednesday. So by the time this episode of publish broadly. We'll all know the answer. But right now, we don't necessarily any thoughts. Wasn't there? A thought I had read that they're speculative who it might be. Yeah. There is. But I can't remember who that was mostly play Royal Air Marach. Yes. Apparently, there's been a couple of people suggesting that the CEO of oil maracas slated to attend the meeting of one world board of directors in New York City on Wednesday on Tuesday. And so that after that meeting he'll be around for the press conference announcing his companies joining the alliance. So the question that comes up for me is the smaller ROY ruler maracas, not a big carrier. They're smart carrier. Yep. What is the advantage of them? Joining the lions just a lower cost a lot of work. They have to do yet. She that. And we've all talked about how lines are not really as useful as they once were. Well, they're not as useful. They once were for the bigger airlines that can otherwise negotiate bilateral that can bring them the revenue in the passengers I think for the small to mid size carriers, and this is something Qatar Airways for all bars posturing about well, if you're not gonna be nice to us. We'll just leave they from on world. He he has said and the company has said in the past it has been a huge boost for them. In terms of passenger traffic connecting flow in revenue. And so what's interesting to me is one world historically has made a big deal about being not the biggest alliance and not the best alliance, but being very focused on growing traffic amongst the top business centers in the world. And they want sort of they want to connect London too. New York far more than they care about you know, having service from random Chinese small town to random small town in North America. Right..

"It's a hat is both Dutch and French destination. So it's a tough one to pick and choose. But and then it got the hurricane which sort of force their hand. But that was one where they actually became a June route they switched it to a few days a week from daily and then dropped down to June on the Air, France side. Yes, maybe they should combine them, but that's a tough one because you actually have traffic from both places trying to get there. Right. You got. There's actually there's surprising amount of lift from both France and the Netherlands to say Martin and all those islands. Maybe that's not a good example other than the fact that went June at one point, let's pay town. Cape Town was a June route that was added back to the air. France network has June has right. Could you and there's no other competition on Cape down the Paris nonstop. Right. So that's an example where you could argue that routing people the Amsterdam verses Frankfurt or Dubai or wherever else you're sending them. London makes just as much sense. Well, let me let's look at where they're getting a lot of cost pressures. Right. They're getting a lot of cost pressure cross the land, and they're getting a lot of cost pressure to China. Yeah. Does it make sense? A curtail some of that. I think transatlantic you have the joint ventures you do, but the joint ventures are great, except you still there so cost cost. Right. And you know, clearly Francis downsizing somewhat because they're getting rid of some of their three eighties. But the flying Greta mention that flying big planes, right? So while delta will gladly seven six threes with one hundred seventy one hundred eighty seats out their Air, France has plans with three hundred seats. Yeah. Right. So they're exposures much larger on these routes to. Yeah. I actually we're coming from is that is that an issue. They just they got suckered into buying too many bigger planes, and I gotta figure out what to do with them. Is it a right? I feel like as much competition. There is transatlantic and all the low cost carrier pressure. You know, there's certain markets where fares are stupidly cheap consistently high Scandinavia. Thanks. It if you look at the earnings reports from at least on the US side. I assume it's relatively similar on the European side. The market isn't as soft as you'd think it should be. Yields are going up. They're not going down user going up the number of flights. Have also been cutting coming down. I mean, look at how much just lets us United sample look at how much stuff has gone seasonal look at AAA. I mean that's of Heathrow. They only have a handful of flights for the most part. They're trimming more and more look at all the custody just in Philadelphia. Yeah. Right. So they're cutting a lot more markets. Transatlantic. And feeding everything through the hubs. So there definitely is. I mean, the way they're yields are going up is they're cutting capacity on. Yeah. Borderline routes. I'm borderline routes. Yes. I think overall capacity even amongst the sort of three joint ventures is up dot com is what I would say transatlantic, and I have to double check the numbers bend. Pretty sure. That's right. And you're probably right. But the bulk of that capacity is all going up to hump 'cause they're just up gauging aircraft. Yeah. They're consolidating it as opposed to their increasing by consolidating not by handing as an example, newer, Keith. It used to be pretty much also success. It's awesome. Six fours. Now. Let's extra forty fifty seats. Until they bring this five to back onto Scott squad onslaught seven other they're only doing one right now. It's at the morning. No. The morning fight actually keeps getting up gauged. Nice. It's not passengers. Yeah. It's like the seven PM is the seven five. Okay. Random mid- middle evening because it's an hour hour after the six nine that's. Okay. The airline within an airline concept. I think Rouge is the only success story. It is one of few.

"So maybe it doesn't really count more. My magic touch may have worn off. I don't know premier was a summer. Hope Romero was more. Like, my Tunisia timing. I'll I think I was in Tunisia. I was into for new years. And I think they're revolution was was that same January. It was very close. So okay. So wow is done or maybe not. But who knows? But let's talk about a good version of wile new LaGuardia. Wow. Wow. Right. I mean, they sure it's not on time. And who knows if it's on budget or not, but like the new terminal actually looks nice. You know, it's great for when you're delays get even longer because they're stalling two runways. Yes. And you're in the crowded air-traffic space in North America. But you know, it is a port authority. So I have the most faith within a year to start looking more like the old than the new liquid. Well, I mean that's going to be bad news because the ceilings are way higher if they got tarps up there to catch drains catch drips, it's gonna be really got some of those two stories right thought that Dr. Dr. Just a little said the club is finding gonna get torn down. I am you know, what I'm really sad about central security. You're you liked the distributed. I loved it because it actually made it so much faster. I've never had to wait more than five minutes in security. If that. Ear which you ever fly out of the be here? Which was the beep here. It was spirit some JetBlue virgin America. The no southwest. I think. Yeah. I it's I would imagine the answer is no for you yet. It was awful. It was I still can't figure out how and why? But it was the one that never had a real free check. Or for a long time didn't have real pre check. I've done. I've done d of done a would have been Air, Canada or the old continental a done. And the ones over and did other CD the other CD and the other a which is the marine air terminal. It's the good news is they're actually getting rid of the letters good. Yeah. They are the new gate numbers don't have letters on them. So that will be very helpful for passengers. I'll put a link to a couple of the some threads it opened on Saturday. American Airlines moved into three gates Air Canada, moved in and southwest moved on Sunday that nuit die honest. Your club reference that I made was the old Eastern Airlines lounge. Which I believe maybe I got this. I believe that was taken over by continental. And then eventually Air Canada is that right? Yup. So the old Air Canada lounge at LaGuardia was originally an eastern club. And it's gonna get torn down. What's interesting to me about that has actually thought might be the the last vestige of eastern sort of stone operation, and I went and looked and it seems like it might be actually couple others still. Oh, wow. There's a room in New Orleans. I think has one and there was one other referenced in the United assuming Wikipedia has any level backers say, but it's one of the last vestiges. I mean like it had the old phone booths for a long time. I think when the continental Air Canada hand off went over they got rid of the phone booths. But there were some really interesting historical bits in that building in that lounge. I do miss that presence clo-. Yeah. Nice. Great views, a great views it was tucked away. So most people didn't know about it. It was it was a hard to find which was great or awful. If you knew it was supposed to be there and confined it. Although I mean, this is completely off tonight. A buddy when I was on this fifteen years ago, we're on a project in DC for a long time. He was flying United DC ADA Newark in like one day was venting to me how pissed he was that..

"Miller. Hello and welcome episode. Two hundred twenty two of dots lines and destinations as Seth tonight. Running the show so good luck to all of us here, and I'm joined by FOSS how you doing buddy. I'm great yourself. Glass three. Whatever we're drinking. It's been a mic. So it's not that. I can't remember it's just that there's multiple things because you know, mixing it mixing always makes our markets enjoyable event that sounds like amateur hour over there with you. Well, I had vodka while I was cooking. And then I switched to wine for dinner. I went in the right? Order had another glass of wine for the puck went in the right order. And honestly, I haven't been other glasses. It'll be fine. That's good. How you doing? Yeah. Great. Yes. All right. Well, let's let's dive in here and see what has happened in the last week because there's a ton of stuff. Is while still in business? Oh, you might need to resurrect the site for. Well. No. I did let that when expire which eight dollars well spent but I let it expire. Wow. Still in business. So when last we spoke Iceland air was planning to buy. Wow. Airlines to different Iceland a carriers. There was no synergies wrong fleet mix, and whatever, but it was a twenty five million dollar deal. So right like why not buy airline for twenty five million dollars? Then over the past week. I guess last Tuesday or Wednesday Icelandair said a weight while can't figure out how to make the deal happen. Essentially, there are some issues with some of the financing while had just taken out a big bond issue and needed to get that refinanced properly to be able to exchange it for this shares in Iceland air, and the bondholders would have taken a nice little haircut. And apparently, it became obvious that they were not going to agree to that. So they didn't do it. And then everybody freaked out like, oh, God was going out of business tomorrow except not really and then. Later that same day indigo partners, which is the not the Indian airline. But the folks that own chunks of Wizz air and frontier and got who else one of the Mexicans airlines. They bought they just ordered four hundred new a three twenty eight you still have a interest in spirit. You're right. Yeah. Guys, who who know how to run low cost carriers and are experiencing that day decided, hey, maybe we should buy some. And so they put out a release basically saying, yeah, we're gonna invest in. Wow. So it's all cool and release. You know, once you finally everybody got excited like, oh, wow. Still alive? And then once you read the release it says subject to completion of due diligence. So okay. Well, maybe we should pause a little bit in our excitement. And then also they said that they would become an investor but not by it out. And so it got real fuzzy in terms of what the deal might actually mean. Okay. So we'll see maybe. Well, we'll be alive. Maybe they won't exactly I I think that the best. I think the smart advice for listeners if you have a wild ticket on it's more.
