What happened last week?
Aside from the double status promotion, we heard Qantas half-yearly results, which I have yet to trawl through.
The big news is the effect Coronavirus is having on the travel industry and the consequences for the airline industry. Qantas, having slashed its capacity to China including Hong Kong, is now reducing international flights, particularly in Asia, but also across the Tasman, and domestically.
Consumers can only hope that this might end in a bit of a price war, although there is no evidence of that quite yet.
In other news, Singapore Airlines are offering some great 'Spontaneous Escape' fares, Alaska Airlines is slated to join OneWorld, and I reviewed a LATAM domestic flight between Iguazú and Rio de Janeiro.
