March 1, 2013 Airline News of The Day, VS Domestic Routes, Sleeping gear, Boeing staffing, and Airline fees
With an Airlines 101 post, china post, and a FAA post I just don’t have time to publish about each piece of news that came out this morning. Where sometimes you famine, today you feast.
Boeing announced they are going to cut up to twenty percent of their staff at the Charleston SC 787 plant. While Boeing did not announce a specific number 20 percent would be 1200 jobs. Best of luck to all those affected by the cuts.
Virgin Atlantic published their domestic schedule to start in April. London-Aberdeen will be three daily, London-Manchester will be three daily moving to four daily, and London-Edinburgh will be three daily moving to six times daily.
Marketwatch.com published an article on Airline fees. I am not sure their math adds up, but I still find it funny that United Airlines maxes out at $666.00.
Finally, from the Travel Goods association in Las Vegas, we have a pillow blindfold combination that looks quite functional even though it looks like it came out of an alternative lifestyle store.
