United President on Potential Boycott and 6 Other Aviation Trends This Week

by Tammy Levent

Skift, an online news website, has compiled a list of socially important stories relevant to airline travel trends in the recent week. These include boycotts, a future projection for United airline, and TSA regulations regarding gender identity. It may be hard to keep up with the turbulent news with our busy lives, but Skift as made this niche of the internet a little easier to access.

Key Takeaways:

  • Throughout the week we post dozens of original stories, connecting the dots across the travel industry, and every weekend we sum it all up. This weekend roundup examines aviation.
  • Ukraine’s flag carrier is the first airline to follow Lufthansa’s bold September 2015 move to add a surcharge to bookings made via third parties.
  • United says it does not yet know if business was hurt by last week’s bumping drama in Chicago. It’s possible that the airline lost some customers on the margins, but United will be fine long-term.

“Sure, United screwed up royally. The real question is, what comes next?”
