News and notes from around the interweb:
- When I discussed the challenges of American and US Airways combining operations at LAX, I expressed hope for the least bad option of offering busing inside security between American’s terminal 4 and the much smaller US Airways operation that’s moving to terminal 3. It turns out that the move and shuttle are supposed to start February 12. I’d prefer greater frequency, but the shuttle will run every 20 minutes.
- US Airways will be extra legroom Main Cabin Extra seating to its coach cabins.
- Gogo inflight internet is offering 15% off an American/US Airways monthly unlimited pass. Apparently the $39.95 price will be going up March 15, but existing monthly customers will be grandfathered at the old rates.
- Etihad Guest is offering status matches up to their Gold (mid-tier) level. (Update: Offer changed to require Etihad Guest account to list a UAE address to be eligible.)
