It’s been an interesting week in travel, starting off with news that Alaska Airlines is buying Virgin America. My thought was meh, but the more I read and learn, the more I can see what Alaska might be thinking…even if they overpaid for the airline. I sense a blog post on this soon. Further, I finally made the A-List…the Southwest A-List, and liked it. Frankly, if I have to fly coach all the time, I might as well fly coach on an airline that doesn’t hit me with change fees, right? We’ll see where this goes. In the meantime, here’s a look at this week’s posts.
