Louisiana offering travel trailers and other housing to those left without a home after Hurricane Ida


By Rebekah Riess and Kelly McCleary, CNN

Louisiana is launching a sheltering program for those “currently living in unsafe or unsanitary” conditions due to damage from Hurricane Ida, which slammed into the Gulf Coast as a Category 4 storm more than five weeks ago, officials said Monday.

The Hurricane Ida Sheltering Program will provide temporary housing to those in parishes heavily impacted by Ida where other shelter options are unavailable, according to a news release from Gov. John Bel Edwards’ office, which called some storm survivors’ living conditions unacceptable.

The housing options may include hotels, base camps, crew barges, or recreational vehicles, including travel trailers that typically hitch to an existing vehicle, the release said. The “non-congregate” options are intended to help reduce the risk of Covid-19 while allowing individuals and families to live as close as possible as they repair their damaged homes, according to the governor’s office.

Hurricane Ida roared ashore near Port Fourchon, Louisiana, on August 29, packing powerful sustained winds of up to 150 mph. Hurricane-force winds extended 50 miles from Ida’s center.

The storm devastated power infrastructure, leaving some residents without electricity for weeks, and sent a life-threatening storm surge through the low-lying region.

At least 22 people died in Louisiana and Mississippi as a result of Ida’s wrath, officials have said.

Many parishes along the coast reported overwhelming devastation.

In Lafourche Parish, which includes Port Fourchon, about 14,000 were left without homes following the storm, which damaged or destroyed 75% of the structures there, parish President Archie Chaisson said last month.

In nearby Grand Isle, about 40-50% of homes were wiped away, according to Bryan Adams, director of Jefferson Parish Fire Services.

“I’ve never seen it look like this. It’s decimated,” Adams said after surveying the storm’s ruins.

The state sheltering program is designed to “complement, not replace,” other housing options such as travel trailers, hotels and mobile homes offered through FEMA, the governor’s office said, noting that while the program is funded through FEMA, it is run entirely by the state.

“Housing is the biggest challenge facing those affected by this devastating storm, and our state-run sheltering program is a safe, creative, temporary solution to get more people closer to their homes as they rebuild,” Edwards said in the news release. “I’m grateful to FEMA’s flexibility in working with us to purchase travel trailers as an interim solution to help survivors while other efforts, including work by FEMA, are ongoing.”

The announcement comes after FEMA said last week that it had no timeline to deliver trailers to Ida’s hardest-hit areas.

“FEMA officials are working with parish governments to determine how many mobile homes will be sent to Terrebonne and Lafourche. No timeline has been set,” FEMA Assistant External Affairs Officer Debra Young said in an email Thursday.

FEMA has provided $670 million in grants directly to survivors in Louisiana for needs not covered by insurance, Young said. FEMA is also providing money to help with short-term housing needs through measures like rental assistance to help people relocate and home repairs. Young said FEMA has paid for hotel stays for more than 3,200 households specifically in Terrebonne and Lafourche parishes.

According to Young, the US Small Business Administration has approved $251.5 million in home disaster loans to 5,435 homeowners and renters.

“In Terrebonne Parish, FEMA has provided more than $67.2 million in grants to 29,293 homeowners and renters. In Lafourche Parish, FEMA has provided more than $52.5 million in grants to 24,077 homeowners and renters,” she said.

Those whose homes were destroyed or are currently unlivable can begin registering for the state program by visiting www.Idashelteringla.com or calling (844) 268-0301, the governor’s office said.

Airlines are offering major deals on fall flights from Alaska to Europe


The big sale on airline tickets to Europe is back on, with a vengeance.

Right now, all three mega-airlines — American, Delta and United — are offering good fares from both Anchorage and Fairbanks to Europe.

United’s deals drop off from Fairbanks next month, but Delta flies year-round from Fairbanks and Anchorage. American partners with Alaska Airlines on many of the trans-Atlantic flights. United offers year-round service from Anchorage via its daily Anchorage-Denver nonstop.

Some of these entry-level bargains to Europe are compelling: Anchorage-Madrid for $294 round trip, for example. Or Anchorage-Athens for $303 round trip. Both of these low-end bargains are offered by American Airlines. But there’s more to the story.

Remember: Airlines these days lure you in with a low base price, then tack on the extras. If you want a pre-assigned seat, it will cost you. If you want to check a bag, it will cost you. If you want a seat with extra legroom like an exit row, that will cost you.

Still, those add-ons will cost you no matter the base fare. So, a lower base fare is good.

Right now, American Airlines has the cheapest fares to Europe. The lowest of the low fares are for travel next month, in October.

Here are some of my favorite rates:

• Anchorage-Dublin: $287 round trip on Alaska and American Airlines. Travel Oct. 16-23. If you don’t want to travel on these dates, other dates are available for $319-$355 round trip. Book at American’s website. Fly from Fairbanks to Dublin for $289 round trip between Oct. 3 and Oct. 12.

• Anchorage/Fairbanks-Madrid: $294 round trip on Alaska and American Air. Travel between Oct. 5 and Oct. 29. Other dates are available between now and Feb. 26 for $350 round trip.

• Anchorage/Fairbanks-Athens for $303-$305 round trip. The best rates are available between Oct. 3 and Oct. 29 on American. After that, the prices go up a little bit, to around $366 round trip.

[If you plan to travel abroad from Alaska, stay on top of shifting pandemic restrictions]

It makes a difference where you book the tickets. In my research, Google Flights offers a good overview of the flights, with a link to a website where you can purchase the tickets. A link to the American Airlines website doesn’t mean all the flights are on American. They could be on Alaska Airlines, British Airways, Finnair or any other oneworld partner.

If you’re headed to Spain, there are many other destinations besides Madrid that are on sale: Barcelona (from $343 round trip) and Malaga (from $354 round trip) also are on sale. Nearby Lisbon, Portugal, is on sale for as little as $361 round trip (for October travel).

The airlines are mum on why the prices are so low. It’s not unusual to see fares to Europe drop to the $400-$500 level once or twice a year. But to see prices drop below $300 round trip is remarkable. It also underscores how soft the demand is for air travel this fall. Most airlines have reduced their predictions of how many people will travel this fall during a resurgence of COVID-19.

Most frequent travelers will not pay the lowest available fare. For example, from Anchorage to Rome, the cheapest fare displayed by American Airlines is $311 round trip. Pre-assigned seats cost extra, though. And your first checked bag is $150. However, if you choose “main cabin” for an extra $150, you get to pre-select your tiny coach seat. And you get one checked bag free. And if you’re an Alaska Airlines elite (MVP or MVP Gold), you can access the “Main Cabin Extra” seats with extra legroom.

If you want to take a quick trip to Europe, remember that entry requirements are changing. You may need to prove you’ve received your COVID-19 vaccination. You probably will need to get tested prior to departure. And you’ll need to make arrangements to get tested once again before returning to the U.S. Check American’s website for a country-by-country breakdown of entry requirements.

If you don’t want to use your passport, there are plenty of good deals available stateside.

One of my favorites is Anchorage-Fort Myers, Florida. Fly from Anchorage to Fort Myers for $101 right away on Delta. There’s no advance purchase. You could get on the plane tomorrow morning. Travel between now and May. From Fairbanks, the price is a little more: $118 one-way.

Flights from Anchorage to New York are really cheap. Fly right away for $116 one-way on American or Alaska Airlines. If you can wait a couple of weeks, the price goes down to $106 one-way. The prices stay low until Feb. 16. Fares are cheaper from Fairbanks. Fly to New York for as little as $98 one-way on Delta.

From Anchorage to Kansas City, the price is really low: $112 one-way on Alaska or Delta, starting in October. It’s a little more if you want to fly right away: $140 one-way. That’s still a nice price.

[Need a bite at Seattle-Tacoma airport? A robot can deliver food to your gate.]

Don’t forget about Seattle. It’s $89 one-way with either Alaska or Delta, starting Sept. 25. The cheap fare is available through Feb. 28.

When I started checking the Europe fares early in the week, United had the lowest rates. The next day, Delta jumped on board with the lowest rates. Then American dropped the rates again on Thursday, So, after checking the rates on Thursday evening, I won’t be surprised if they changed again.

All fares are subject to change without notice. If you see a fare you like, buy it. You have 24 hours to change your mind. You’ll get a full refund, as mandated by federal regulations.

Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air is offering a first-of-its-kind travel package featuring air, hotel and football tickets to a Raiders home game at Allegiant Stadium. In addition, the carrier revealed a custom silver and black airplane livery adorned with the Raiders logo.

Alaska Airlines said any passengers wearing a Seattle Seahawks jersey featuring Russell Wilson or a limited-edition Wilson shirt would receive early boarding priority on all flights from Seattle and Everett. The promotion is scheduled to last for the duration of the NFL season.

Earlier this month, United Airlines announced it would add 16 new direct flights for four of the most highly anticipated games of the early season, including Green Bay and New Orleans; Green Bay at San Francisco; Tampa and Boston; and Buffalo and Kansas City.

Courtyard by Marriott is celebrating the return of travel and live football games this fall with the launch of its Courtyard Super Bowl Sleepover Contest.

Raiders News: Allegiant offering Raiders fan package travel deals


There’s a reason why it’s called Raider Nation, the Las Vegas Raiders’ fanbase not only spans multiple states but also multiple countries and continents. That means some of the most passionate and biggest Raider fans often have to travel to attend home games.

So, Allegiant Airlines is launching flight packages to Las Vegas this football season that also include hotel accommodations and tickets to the game.

Mick Akers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal was the first to report this information, and a breakdown of the packages Allegiant is offering is listed below:

Kickoff Package

  • Upper-Level Seats
  • Selection of hotel stay at a 3+ star hotel
  • Roundtrip Flights
  • Seat Selection, Carry On Bag, Checked Bag, Priority Boarding
  • Starts at $749.00 per person

First Down Package

  • Lower Level or End Zone Seats
  • Selection of hotel stay at a 4+ star hotel
  • Roundtrip Flights
  • Seat Selection, Carry On Bag, Checked Bag, Priority Boarding
  • Starts at $819.00 per person

Touchdown Package

  • Field-level seats near midfield
  • Selection of hotel stay at a 5-star hotel
  • Roundtrip Flights
  • Seat Selection, Carry On Bag, Checked Bag, Priority Boarding
  • Starts at $2,479.00 per person

There are a few other important notes about the packages you should be aware of as well.

The number of travelers must be the same as the number of tickets to the game, meaning you can’t add on extra game tickets without also purchasing extra boarding passes. No one-way flights are allowed – roundtrip only – and it’s a two-night minimum at the hotels.

Tickets will be distributed through Ticketmaster, which is pretty standard for NFL games nowadays. Of course, the Raiders COVID-19 vaccination requirement for any fans over the age of 12 will still apply to get into the stadium.

All-in-all, this is a pretty good bang for your buck if you live out of state and are looking to go a game, in my opinion. On Ticketmaster right now, seats in Section 224 – second level, end zone – start at $375 for the Monday Night season opener so for about $450 more, your flight and two nights in the hotel are covered. Plus, it’s Vegas so just hit the tables and make your money back…

  • Raiders sign Peyton Barber: the veteran running back was placed on Washington’s practice squad after cutdown day.
  • David Moore added to practice squad: he signed a two-year $4.75 million deal with Carolina but failed to make the team. Moore has 1,163 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns in his career.
  • Ngakoue restructures contract: $12 million of his salary was converted to a signing bonus, clearing $8 million of cap space.
  • Perryman considering getting vaccinated: “I ain’t gonna lie, there’s too many restrictions going on. Can’t even eat with my fellow brothers. I don’t like being an outcast,” the linebacker replied when asked if his thoughts on the subject have changed since July.

Bamboo Airways Offering Intriguing Status Match


While it might not be terribly useful to most, here’s a potentially fun opportunity to get a top-tier status match without any flying requirement.

What is Bamboo Airways?

Some context might be useful here. Bamboo Airways is a fairly new Vietnamese airline that was founded in 2017. The airline is growing at a ridiculously fast pace, and already has dozens of planes, including brand new Airbus A321neos and Boeing 787-9s, which feature solid onboard products.

The airline plans to begin flying to the United States in the coming year, and has all kinds of long haul growth aspirations. Bamboo Airways has its own frequent flyer program, Bamboo Club, but doesn’t belong to a major alliance, and doesn’t have any valuable frequent flyer partnerships (at least not yet).

By the way, can we agree that Bamboo Airways has the second best frequent flyer program name, after Cayman Airways’ Sir Turtle Club?

Bamboo Airways’ 787-9 business class

Bamboo Airways’ Bamboo Club status match

Bamboo Airways is offering a status match to all oneworld, Star Alliance, and SkyTeam frequent flyers. Bamboo Airways is matching all the way up to top-tier status:

  • oneworld Ruby, Star Alliance Silver, and SkyTeam Elite, will match to Bamboo Club Gold
  • oneworld Sapphire will match to Bamboo Club Diamond
  • oneworld Emerald, Star Alliance Gold, and SkyTeam Elite Plus, will match to Bamboo Club First

To apply for a status match:

  • Register for Bamboo Club, which is free and instant
  • Complete the status match request form, which requires including a copy of your frequent flyer card and ID; you must apply by June 30, 2021
  • If eligible, your application will be approved within 7-10 business days

It’s not entirely clear how long a status match is valid for.

What are Bamboo Airways elite perks like?

What are elite benefits like as a Bamboo Airways Bamboo Club member? Bamboo Club Gold members receive:

  • Business class check-in
  • Priority seat selection
  • An additional 5kg of checked luggage
  • Priority boarding
  • Priority bag delivery
  • 50 bonus points on your birthday

Bamboo Club Diamond members receive the following incremental perks:

  • Business class lounge access
  • An additional 10kg of checked luggage
  • Complimentary upgrade to Bamboo Plus or Bamboo Business if your original class is full and seats in the higher cabin are available at the time of check-in or boarding
  • 100 bonus points on your birthday

Bamboo Club First members receive the following incremental perks:

  • An additional 20kg of checked luggage
  • 150 bonus points on your birthday

As you can see, these benefits would come in handy if you fly Bamboo Airways frequently, though even so:

  • The elite perks are fairly weak, even when traveling with Bamboo Airways
  • There are no perks on other airlines, as you may find with an alliance airline

I also find it noteworthy how the airline has essentially formalized operational upgrades as an elite perk — you only get upgrades if economy is oversold and there’s space in the higher cabin. That’s a policy virtually all airlines have, though it’s not typically promoted, since something like this will only lead to disappointment.

Is a Bamboo Airways status match worth it?

On the surface a status match with no flying requirement valid to anyone that has status with a major alliance is intriguing, especially when you can get top-tier status. Obviously if you fly Bamboo Airways with any frequency this could be worth it. If you don’t (and I suspect most of us fall into this category), there are two ways to look at this:

  • On the one hand, who wouldn’t want to say they’re a Bamboo Club First member, and Bamboo Airways does eventually plan to fly to the US
  • On the other hand, given the lack of perks on any other airlines, there simply won’t be much value to most, given how restricted international travel is nowadays

Bamboo Airways will eventually fly to the US

If Bamboo Airways were already flying to the US and I could enter Vietnam, I’d totally take advantage of this just for giggles, and fly the airline. But for now I figure I’ll save this opportunity for when it’s actually useful.

I sure do love my Starlux Airlines COSMILE Insighter status, which I earned through a status match. The major difference was that the Starlux status match is valid for several years. It even came with an awesome commemorative card and luggage tag.

My commemorative Starlux Airlines Insighter card

Bottom line

Bamboo Airways has launched a status match promotion. On the surface it’s cool to be able to get a top-tier status match without any sort of a flying requirement, though in reality I’m guessing this will be of limited use to most people.

If Bamboo Airways were already flying to the US and travel to Vietnam were practical I’d totally take advantage of this, though for the time being I don’t see this being useful. Here’s to hoping this opportunity sticks around in the future.

Anyone plan to take advantage of this Bamboo Airways status match?

American Airlines offering ‘quarantine free’ travel between NYC and Italy


American Airlines is offering “quarantine-free travel” on certain flights from New York City to Italy in a bid to boost international travel and recoup revenue lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Soon, passengers who test negative for the virus will be able to travel from flights marketed and operated by American Airlines from New York City’s John F. Kennedy airport to Milan and Rome without having to quarantine, the airline announced Thursday. 

The major U.S. carrier fell short of specifying when this will occur but indicated it would be within the “coming days and weeks.” 

TSA SCREENS MORE THAN 1M PASSENGERS PER DAY FOR 19 DAYS IN A ROW

Prior to travel, customers will still need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test. Upon arriving in Italy, passengers will have to test negative again. The double testing will effectively allow those to “forgo the local post-travel quarantine requirements, enabling customers to maximize their time while in Italy,” the carrier said. 

American plans to resume service to Milan starting April 4 and limited service to Rome on May 8 after being suspended for a year.

After the onset of the pandemic prompted worldwide lockdowns, air travel was forced to a near standstill. 

TRAVELING WITHOUT QUARANTINE? IT MAY SOON BE POSSIBLE WITH NEW AIRLINE INDUSTRY APP

Industry officials say it was a “catastrophe” for the once-lucrative industry and “there is no other way to describe it.”

“What recovery there was over the Northern hemisphere summer season stalled in autumn and the situation turned dramatically worse over the year-end holiday season, as more severe travel restrictions were imposed in the face of new outbreaks and new strains of COVID-19,” International Air Transport Association
CEO Alexandre de Juniac said in February.

Global passenger traffic demand in 2020 fell by 65.9% compared to the full year of 2019, which the IATA says is “by far the sharpest traffic decline in aviation history.”

However, now that vaccines are being rolled out, the airline industry hopes to see the lifting of broad restrictions on travel between the United States and Europe, China and other regions that former President Donald Trump imposed last spring to curb the spread of the virus.

Meanwhile, U.S. air travel is already picking up. The number of passengers screened at U.S. airports has surpassed 1 million for 19 days in a row as of Monday, according to Transportation Security Administration (TSA) data. This marks the most prolonged travel rebound amid the pandemic. 

To help, American has also upped its in-person pre-flight testing options for travelers across the country including at the airline’s hubs in Charlotte, North Carolina and New York City. 

Customers now have access to testing at more than 150 local urgent care facilities or hospitals through GoHealth Urgent Care, the airline said. 

FOX News’ Ann Schmidt and the Associated Press contributed to this report.
