CEO de Azul al todo o nada por Latam Airlines: “Si compramos nos quedaremos con todo el grupo, no solo con Brasil” – Diario Financiero
If you don’t speak Spanish, fear not, that’s what Google Translate is for. But in short, Azul is now gunning to take over all of LATAM, not just the Brazilian part. It says it has a plan it will submit to creditors when the exclusivity period ends. That should be happening on November 23… in theory. (Actually, update, looks like it’s November 26. Either way… it’s gonna be interesting.)

U.S. Senate panel plans airline oversight hearing after worker cuts – Reuters

New airline aha! to offer flights from Palm Springs to Reno starting next year – Desert Sun
This is an interesting gamble. There is a growing local population in the Palm Springs area but I find it hard to believe they’d provide much demand for a trip to Reno. Instead, this looks to be the first attempt to do something that’s more for the Reno traveler. Flights leave Reno in the morning with a mid-day return.
