News and notes from around the interweb:
- Southwest Airlines releases 50 Years. One Heart: A History of Southwest in 5O Objects Here’s the release about the commemorative book. And here are the two crazy ideas their first big investor had and the story of how they first became an all-737 airline.
- People are posing as ‘Uber Shuttle’ drivers at New York-area airports offering to ‘drive you to the Uber lot’
- Can’t risk D0.

- The ‘Home Alone’ house is available to rent on Airbnb for one night only
- The DFW airport CEO just got a $58,000 raise. Even though the airport was flush with cash thanks to CARES Act and related federal bailouts, he didn’t get a raise last year because other government employees in the region didn’t. In total he’ll make $756,000 – less than the CEOs of London Heathrow and Sydney airports.
In this case open seating has a clear advantage over assigned seats.
Urine for a case of diaper rash if it’s a long flight.
Being an all 737 airline has now turned into a liability.
