News and notes from around the interweb:
- Erin Andrews will finally get her day in court against the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University. Hotels really shouldn’t tell strangers what room you’re in, but ultimately one of the biggest threats to security is social engineering, and that’s a tough problem to crack.
- Starting March 30 it will be possible to redeem Alaska Airlines miles for travel on Hainan Airlines.
- British Airways ends unaccompanied minor service
- As of today the LAX Tom Bradley Terminal will be connected airside to terminal 4 (American Airlines) which is in turn connected to terminals 5 through 8.
Star Alliance Golds, including United Golds and higher, will be able to access the lovely outdoor deck of the Star Alliance lounge even when flying United domestically. oneworld mid-tier elites and higher with programs other than American AAdvantage will be able to access the oneworld lounge even when flying American domestically. British Airways Golds and similar-tiered members will certainly enjoy the dining in the Qantas first class lounge!

- Startup aims to help entrepreneurs set up small businesses in the United States (HT: Marginal Revolution) Not long before foreign readers will be getting US small business card signup bonuses!
I assume people flying United business class on p.s. flights to Newark (or international flights) will also be able to use the star alliance lounge in the international terminal?
Any idea if there will be a way to stay airside after immigration and customs, for arriving international pax with a domestic connection?
To add to dca-sea question – if you arrive SQ suites, with a domestic connection in UA F (but have no status in Star Alliance) – can you go through immigration/customs and still remain airside to access the Star Alliance in TBIT?
You can’t remain airside after immigration. You have to be rescreened.
