October 28th Downtime: Mitigation Strategies?

Our fly apps ran into an hour of downtime back on the 28th of October, and per the Fly Status Page, a network error was causing this downtime. We already autoscale our apps to offer a failsafe on another region, but this particular case affected both regions.

Is there a way we can mitigate downtimes from Fly/AWS? Should we consider a different backup region? Also is there any way to offer a maintenance redirect in these cases, or even a CARP/VRRP failsafe?
