@LondonAirTravel Drew Crawley, CEO of Avios, confirms that IAG is looking at a single loyalty programme for all its airlines, like hotel groups. The risk is brand dilution by losing individual programmes such as the BA Executive Club given how loyal many passengers are to individual airlines.

@LondonAirTravel Willie Walsh says airline alliances “a poor substitute for M&A activity”.  “They’re all about revenue synergies.  Anybody who tells you there’s a cost benefit or any other synergy is misleading you.”  “I don’t think LATAM leaving [Oneworld] is the end of it.”

@Oliver__Clark IAG has not reached a definite agreement with Boeing over to firm up its MOU for 200 Max aircraft yet says CFO Steve Gunning at CMD.
@SkyNewsBreak The Official Receiver has announced EasyJet has bought Thomas Cook’s landing slots at Gatwick and Bristol airports for £36m from liquidators for the collapsed travel firm.

@TheForwardCabin It’s really interesting to see the stark differences between carriers — some are more focusses on cramming in seats to woo every type of traveler, while some focus on better service to focus on those willing to pay more.
