- Passenger and ramp worker play rock paper scissors.

- Next month Norwegian will drop all transatlantic flying Providence and Stewart-Newburgh thanks to the grounding of the 737 MAX.
- San Francisco airport is banning bottled water. Coca Cola plans to sell water in aluminum cans and bottles. I still think there’s an opportunity for Southwest Airlines to corner this market.
- Denver airport is terminating the Great Hall renovation project contract without even knowing how much it will cost to do so. (HT: @RandomSegments) That’s how much of a mess it is. DIA security is of course a mess. How they got themselves into this contract debacle is one big conspiracy theory.
- Still cool with continued rollout of facial recognition in airports? In California 20% of the state’s lawmakers were misidentified as criminals by facial recognition software. Then again, maybe the software wasn’t wrong. (I mean, even smiling throws off the software.)
