Virgin Australia changes Trans-Tasman strategy, Air Tanzania scaling up, the era of liquids in a separate bin coming to an end, fiery AeroMexico crash

Posted on August 1, 2018 by in Travel Deals

– Virgin Australia Velocity is switching to a spend based mileage earning starting today for Trans-Tasman flights

The airline also adds free bags, free food, drinks and entertainment to their Economy flights to New Zealand. Virgin Australia and Air New Zealand had terminated a codeshare agreement that will make it much harder for Virgin Australia to fill the seats.

– Air Tanzania does not have a lot of planes but is using their single new 787 for a host of new destinations

Tanzania surely needs way to serve regional airports from Dar Es Salaam and Zanzibar – let’s hope it is also financially sustainable.

– I have stopped taking out any liquids (I usually only have small amounts) of my carry-on bags a long time ago – only security at London Heathrow ever seem to mind – now the TSA may install new scanners with better resolution at many airports making it official policy soon to keep your liquids in your bag

ALL passengers survived a fiery plane crash near Durango, Mexico yesterday after an aborted take-off gone bad
