Competing for B(r)agging Rights – American Airlines Arrivals
American puts out a weekly employee newsletter, and it sends it to media as well. Last week, the story on page 3 caught my eye. In San Jose, the airline made several changes to how it handles bags, and the end result is that bags are now getting to the carousel much faster. It’s not a long read, but you can see everything that the airline has been testing out.
Two for the road:
Delta Comfort+ now offered on CRJ-200 aircraft – Delta News Hub
You might think that Delta moved things around to create a Comfort+ section on the 50-seaters, but no, it didn’t. It simply started selling the first row as Comfort+. Those aren’t great seats, but I guess they’re better than others… if you don’t care about storing your bag in front of you. And now if you buy them, you’ll get pre-boarding. Now you’ll be able to gate check your bag even earlier!
