Brazil’s Airlines Surge
This week in the ‘Lounge, Ned and Madhu discuss the U.S. reopening for vaccinated travelers and what that means for airlines.

After a terrible second quarter marked by devastating Covid wave, Brazil’s airlines are reaping the benefits of the country’s strong and widespread vaccination program. Finally, Ned and Madhu mourn the Eastern Shuttle, which American is finally ending, and wonder where they can watch “Love on the Eastern Shuttle,” a long-forgotten movie about the route.
