News notes from around the interweb:
- China air travel has returned to just half of last year’s levels that’s with the virus crushed, and more time than we’ve had in the U.S. so far.
- India has extended its prohibition on scheduled international flights through June 30. In some ways this is strange. Limiting flights is supposed to limit bringing the virus into the country. India now already has one of the worst outbreaks in the world. We should be glad, I suppose, that they’re not exporting it.
- Alitalia: too Italian to fail
- Dubai’s Crown Prince flew Emirates first class instead of flying private, we all have to tighten our belts in difficult times.
He had a paper ticket and appears not to be an Emirates Skywards member (and lacked the foresight, it seems to credit to the more general Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan).
- Judge’s restraining order keeps Hyatt from de-flagging the Buffalo Regency
- Airports will deliver what people want to buy.
