United Introducing New Seat Assignment Fees and New Benefits for Corporate Travelers

This is all good news for corporate customers, especially big customers of United. Outside of change fee and reaccommodation waivers, the benefits largely come at the expense of flyers who are not corporate customers. Luckily the extra juice corporate customers are getting here is very much at the margin, a Platinum member's upgrade will still trump a Gold member for instance.

More seats that require a fee isn't surprising, but it does make buying up from United's uncompetitive basic economy that much less appealing. Non-corporate leisure customers should increasingly consider American, Delta, or Southwest.

Here’s How Much Airlines Made Off Their Frequent Flyer Programs So Far This Year

Frequent flyer programs create tremendous value for airlines. They're highly profitable, and have been for years. When United filed for bankruptcy it was said to have to continue flying to support the underlying credit card business. The airline's first call after seeing the judge each time was to Jamie Dimon.

The issuer of the United co-brand credit card provided debtor-in-possession financing to United, and co-led bankruptcy exit financing. As with other airlines, United received hundreds of millions of dollars in loans backed by future mileage sales to provide liquidity during the financial crisis.

Lawsuit: American Airlines Baggage Handler Made Up Terrorist Threat Against Dying Passenger

This story is among the most egregious I've heard and as it proceeds it just gets worse and worse.

Debbie Cardarelli is suing American Airlines for more than $1 million over the experience her now deceased husband had last year as the two flew home from Miami to Rochester, New York via Philadelphia in March 2017. As they boarded their connecting segment to Rochester they were told the aircraft, an Embraer ERJ-145, wouldn't have room onboard for their carry on and they'd have to gate check it.

American Airlines President Confirms They’re Considering Dropping More Chicago – Asia Flights

Last week a Chicago-based flight attendant asked American's President Robert Isom about "the rumor that we're going to lose all of our Asia flying" from O'Hare. Isom didn't say no, Chicago won't lose Asia service. Instead he explained how he sees American's hubs.

American's Vice President - Planning Vasu Raja added "the core of Chicago is an extremely profitable hub" because of connecting traffic in the Midwest and flying to partner hubs. "The only hubs that are more profitable than that are indeed Dallas and Charlotte." However "the drags on Chicago are indeed Chicago to Asia flying."
