Midfield Satellite Concourse Management Report to the Board of Commissioners – LA World AirportsThe new Midfield Satellite Concourse at LAX is substantially complete and should be opening relatively soon. This recent report to the board shows a bunch of photos. Most interesting to me, however, mentions that airlines that currently operate in Bradley, T5, and T6 will move there. I asked LAWA for names, but they aren’t talking yet.Game of the Week: Of course it took an airline employee to invent a board game about traveling through the airport during the time of COVID. She sent me a review copy, and I have to say, it was a lot of fun. My 7 year-old daughter asked if we could play again the next night (and the next night, and the next night), so don’t pay attention to the “12 and up” label. The general idea is to get from your home to the ticket counter, past TSA, through the terminal, and on to your airplane. Interested? It’s currently for sale on a crowd-sourcing site, so the more people who buy, the cheaper it gets. Check it out here before the sale ends on March 14.

Interim Financial Results 2021 – Air New ZealandYou would think that a country heavily dependent on international tourism like New Zealand would have an airline with a disastrous result.

Incredibly, domestic capacity is at three-quarters of pre-COVID levels because Kiwis are all flying domestically, replacing much of the lost international tourism.
