News notes from around the interweb:
- Norwegian gets government subsidies to stay in business while state-controlled Bank of China now has a 12.67% stake in the business.
- Most people that have owned a car in the past 20 years can register to receive $100 or more from a replacement parts class action settlement.
- Delta’s CEO flatters the President for saving U.S. airlines thanks to government subsidies. Being a good CEO in the era of corporate socialism requires a significant dose of post-modernism to live with the cognitive dissonance of holding contradictory opinions simultaneously.
- Singapore’s Changi airport will once again permit transit passengers starting June 2. A ban has been in place since March 23.
- Passengers still complaining that flights are too full, but not buying themselves an extra seat.
Just flew on @AmericanAir flight AA1154 from Fresno to Dallas. Apparently airlines are exempt from CDC guidelines for social distancing. All rows with the exception of maybe 4 rows were completely full of passengers. I've never felt so unsafe in my life. @CNN @CDCgov pic.twitter.com/D67KmZuzvl
