  1. The hack was tricking you to open this article.

  2. I miss the point of saying “gets entire family kicked off a flight”. Seriously, did anyone expect them to just kick off the 3 year old, and let the rest of the family continue on without him?

  3. I get nervous anytime I see AS suggesting the word “merger”. They run a fine operation and their miles are still usable given their stable of clients.
