Launched a Crowdrise fundraising campaign to support those affected by Hurricane Florence, Typhoon Mangkhut, flooding in Western Japan, wildfires in California and other disasters.
Announced an additional 100 flights and more than 10,000 seats daily to 12 of the country's top ski destinations during the 2018/2019 ski season, as well as the addition of more than 8,500 seats from U.S. hubs and eight other U.S. cities to Las Vegas for the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show.
