Refund Policy for Travel Agents – Air Canada
Now that the Canadian government has finally provided financial assistance to Air Canada, the airline has relented and offered refunds for all impacted by schedule changes over the last year. It has been a long and painful road for travelers who were repeatedly told they couldn’t have their money back despite US law requiring it. Of course, it’s also shocking that Canada wouldn’t provide assistance until now considering that it was the government that effectively shut Canada off to the world, making a Canadian airline’s business impossible to operate. That doesn’t excuse Air Canada for what it did. I’m just glad this saga is over.

American-JetBlue Alliance Draws Increased Scrutiny From Justice Department – Wall Street Journal $SUBSCRIPTION REQUIRED$
I normally hesitate to link to articles that require subscriptions, but this could be a very important story depending upon how it evolves. Besides, you can search the web and find others who have commented on this in more detail. If the new administration decides it doesn’t like this Northeast Alliance, it could shut it down or require remedies. It’s all very nebulous at this point, but I have more thoughts which will end up in a post in the near future.
