News and notes from around the interweb:
- Air New Zealand is now weighing passengers departing from Auckland two years ago they had to weigh domestic passengers to validate weight assumptions, and now their regulator is making them check international flights.
This affects how much cargo and fuel a plane will carry, and the U.S. has processes too.
- United’s Devaluation Continues: Saver Award Pricing Jumps To Central America, South America, Middle East, India, And More
- Singapore Airlines adds a third champagne choice to First and Suites class: 2018 Vilmart Grand Cellier D’Or. This is in addition to Taittinger Comtes de Champagne and Krug, which most will still prefer.
- Air Canada will get a new long haul business class for new widebodies and for existing ones when they go in for heavy maintenance.
- It’s being called a ‘smoking gun’ it was confiscated, but of course it posed absolutely no danger to anyone. I guess it was more realistic looking than this and even a photo of a gun gets deemed a security threat.

- Proof of life.
An interesting policy at Hong Kong Disneyland. Because they don't do hand stamps anymore (pandemic holdover I guess) in order to reenter you need a picture of yourself in the park that day to prove you were there plus your ticket.
