After Dallas Cowboys Lose, They Lose a Second Time on American Airlines

News notes from around the interweb:

  • Korean Air ‘nut rage’ heiress in a family feud over how the company is being run

  • The Dallas Cowboys lost to the Eagles and then their American Airlines plane broke down. American has a long relationship with the Cowboys and the reception for their media day was held at Cowboys stadium two years ago. (HT: @DStorkman)

  • The chairman of the FCC won’t allow internet calling on planes because he likes quiet and because flight attendants are against it, but guess what, many internet calling apps work inflight today – either people don’t know or just don’t use it (it’s against the rules, but when people do use it I’ve never seen anyone say anything).

  • New York JFK’s redevelopment plan is out, there’s no way this is close to complete by 2026.

  • United’s holiday lookback infographic. That’s a lot of stroopwafels, and remember they eliminated the snack for the second half of 2018 but faced customer pushback.

  • Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman happened to share a Qantas flight back to Australia.

  1. [RE Cowboys cheerleader pic] Watch your hands, Gary, watch those hands! j/k, LOL

    Are you more inclined towards blondes or brunettes? Tough choice, I’m sure. 🙂

    In the Crowe-Kidman pic, it’s amazing how Nicole Kidman elevates every picture/film that she is in by 2 or 3 levels. She could literally be photographed in front of a waste dump and make it appear an attractive place.

  2. Everybody loses when they depend upon American Airlines to get anywhere or receive service for their money.

  3. those two should have just gotten together and flown private jet instead of paying Quantas 11st class
