- Sharing this even though I expect it’s quite old. Looks like China Eastern to me, and no masks.

- Visa, Mastercard, and American Express all classify gun stores with new merchant code seen by many as a precursor to being pressured into banning such sales.
- New Zealand scraps on-arrival tests, vaccination mandate, mask-wearing on flights
- I knew that American Airlines humanitarian fares were ending, just not that they were retained for LDS. I suspect that the LDS contract is more lucrative with less leakage – HUMN fares generally were bookable by bucket shops. They’re a great price discrimination tool for group business from a very price sensitive customer group, but not if they’re booked by others outside the target audience. Instead of fixing that, American eliminated most of the fares.
- Remember when there were ticket offices?
