Air Canada’s Massive International Airfare Sale!

September 28, 2007 | Posted in: Uncategorized | 0 comments

Today, Air Canada issued a major Airfare sale for those interested in traveling overseas. You can find savings from $100 to $250 on flights from the U.S. to cities throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. Two highlights from the sale have to be Boston to Frankfurt at $295 (+ tax) and New York to London for a seemingly ridiculous $196 (+tax).

Now, just a few days ago I pointed out that airfares for flights between the U.S. and Canada had gone up just in time for hockey season, and so far things remain the same on that front. However, international hockey fans can enjoy all the action they want, while spending far less money to get there…

Delta to Expand and Improve JFK Operations

September 28, 2007 | Posted in: Airline News | 2 comments

At the beginning of the week, I wrote about how the government might limit JFK flights in order to deal with the large number of delays that airport has faced. Well, it seems as though Delta is eager to take things into their own hands…

Tax Free Domestic Airline Ticket Party? Evidently Not Yet

September 28, 2007 | Posted in: Airfare News | 8 comments

It looks as though congress passed this legislation about a week ago (H.R. 2881 FAA Reauthorization Act of 2007) and Bush has said he will sign it before 1st October deadline.

According to a press release from the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee:

The House today approved and sent to the Senate a bill providing a temporary extension of Federal aviation programs through the end of 2007. The current authorization expires on September 30, and some programs would lapse without an extension.
The House approved a new, four-year authorization bill on September 20, and a companion bill is pending in the Senate. Todays action would provide the two chambers with additional time to finish work on that legislation.

The U.S. based airline ticket taxes are set to expire this Sunday 30th of September.

Evidently our legislators in D.C. haven’t completely taken action on this expiration…

Geek Data – Which Airplanes Clog The U.S. Skies?

September 27, 2007 | Posted in: Airline News,Travel Tips | 4 comments

I’ve always been intrigued by the types of planes particular airlines choose for their fleets. Are they getting rid of larger jets and replacing them with several smaller craft? Are they using more large planes in the hope that it will cut down delays? Are they relying on the same type of fleet they’ve always had, or are they thinking of taking on new products put out by Boeing and Airbus?

In order to answer those questions and to get a clearer picture of what’s going on in the sky, I thought it might be interesting to break down the number of flights in the domestic U.S. on a typical fall Monday (November 19, 2007) and show you which airlines are flying which airplanes. Luckily have I have the worldwide flight schedules at my disposal and with a series of data slicing queries I was able to come up with these numbers…

Airlines Raise U.S/Canadian Airfares – Just in Time for Hockey Season

September 27, 2007 | Posted in: Airfare News,Airline News | 1 comment

Prices for travel between the U.S. and Canada have been increased system-wide over the past week — starting with Air Canada earlier in the week, and then subsequently matched by all overlapping U.S. domestic airlines.

I normally don’t post on these types of airfare increase moves for travel between U.S./Canada, but it really cuts me to the bone that airlines would take advantage of “us” hockey aficionados (can a hockey fan actually use the word aficionado – oh well that will be a discussion another time)…

U.S. Airlines Get New Routes to China

September 27, 2007 | Posted in: Airline News,Destinations | 0 comments

A couple of weeks ago, I did a post on Air China’s new routes to the U.S., Canada, and Europe. Air China’s expansion will partly coincide with the 2008 Olympics, but many of the new routes will not be added until 2009. Now, similar growth is happening with U.S. carriers…

Miami Airport Employees Learn Some Disney Magic

September 26, 2007 | Posted in: Ask Rick | 0 comments

Lately, it seems that when those in the air travel industry need a bit of customer service help, they turn to Disney. Recently, United Airlines hired a former Disney exec as their Vice President of Customer Experience, and now terminal operations employees at Miami International Airport (MIA) are taking classes headed up by the Disney Institute in hopes that it will help them to better interact with travelers.

Along with Princesses and High School Musicals, Disney is known for their customer service. “Cast members” at their parks must be eager to please, and smiles and cleanliness are just part of the Disney experience. This has led companies in a range of industries to seek out a bit of that Disney magic to help turn things around, and many believe that Miami International needs some turning around. MIA has faired poorly when it comes to customer satisfaction (bottom 4 among large airports according to J.D. Power and Associates), and those in charge know something has to change…
