How the 737 Max’s Grounding Affects Business Travel

Last week, Global Business Travel Association President Christle Johnson stated in a news release that the shutdown was having a direct impact.

“As authorities across the globe have grounded planes, we are seeing immediate travel disruption,” Johnson said.“We will continue to follow these announcements closely to assess the business travel impact and will keep you apprised as we learn more.”But even before last week’s announcement that the plane would be grounded in the U.S. questions around the 737 Max were creating a degree of chaos around the travel booking process—in part because some airlines were debating removing the planes from circulation, both nationally and internationally.

According to the travel website Simple Flying, the Max planes made up only a small percentage of the number of planes in circulation (72 out of more than 2,500 active planes in the U.S. However, the number of flights (more than 2,000 each week) and number of seats represented (more than 355,000) created huge logistical challenges for many airlines, including the need to move new aircraft into the place of the current planes.The largest airlines in North America to have a significant fleet of 737 Max planes are Southwest and American Airlines. Southwest has moved other planes in place of the Max planes, while American Airlines strategically canceled some flights with multiple daily trips to minimize the impact.“Overall, there is plenty of capacity globally to pick up the slack left by the departure of the 737 Max,” the website stated. “In the short term, there’s likely to be a certain amount of disruption as carriers put contingency plans in place.”Things have calmed down to a degree in the U.S.since the ban first surfaced, but it’s still creating issues elsewhere, such as in Canada, where airlines, including WestJet and Air Canada, face challenges.If you’re traveling soon, it might be a good idea to take a look to see if your ticket was booked on an affected plane, something you can see at the website Flight Stats.

But even if you’re not necessarily on a 737 Max, you may still run into issues if only because shifting aircraft might create ripple effects down the line.This was something Southwest spokesperson Dan Landson alluded to in comments reported by USA Today.“Operating an airline is a puzzle that’s put together every day and then reset when operational issues come into play,” Landson said.“When a flight is canceled, our teams look for ways to minimize the impact to all customers, including on the original canceled flight and then along the way where the aircraft/flight was scheduled to operate.”To put it another way—until everything gets worked out,  prepare for the potential for a little turbulence in the booking process.

Arts Alive ready to honor donors as it shows off new digs, new artists

As a thank you for support received throughout 2018, the Summit County Arts Council nonprofit group will be hosting a reception honoring donors, …
The reception will be at the gallery inside the La Cima Mall, 500 S.Main St. from 5-8 p.m. March 9.
Anyone who remembers the Arts Alive Gallery before the redo won’t have to look hard to find it now, as Arts Alive hasn’t moved. Instead, the council scaled back the size of the gallery.The Summit County Arts Council says the new compact space does not sacrifice quality or variety, but frees up valuable funds to support the group’s efforts of improving lives through art.And Arts Alive has a few new artists, too.Deb Evans works mostly with moderate sized canvases and enjoys painting mountains, lakes and rivers. Meanwhile, Teri Z.Hendrix, who started painting at a young age, retired from teaching in 2010 and now has the time to chase her creative passions.The other artist is Stephen Johnson, a multi-generational Colorado native who got his first Kodak Brownie Camera in the 1950s.In the mid-70s he upgraded to a SLR camera, and was asked to participate in a Kodak Focus group in 2000, which provided an entry point into digital photography. Johnson now shoots with professional cameras and various lenses, as he chases wildlife photography with an emphasis on raptors and birds-in-flight, as well as shots of the landscape, sunsets and sunrises.His work is often featured in the Summit Daily News.For more, go to Summit Arts.org or find for the Arts Alive Gallery on .Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.If you don’t follow the rules, your comment may be deleted.Top Jobs Stay Winter ParkHOA Manager, Office Manager, Front Desk/Guest Service, Guest Services Manager Stay Winter Park is growing and needs you to join our team!
