News and notes from around the interweb:
- REAL ID requirement being delayed again to May 2023 – it won’t go into effect October 1 ‘because of he pandemic’ of course you can fly without any ID at all, real or otherwise. They were never going to delay it just a year because that would have meant some people hassled at the airport right before the midterm elections.
- United 1K member complains a pilot thanked a wounded veteran on board, but didn’t thank him for his business. For what it’s worth I have never been thanked as a decade-long 100,000 mile flyer on American. While it’s a nice gesture, they’re largely there flying the aircraft and not doing customer service [indeed when the captain needs to get involved in customer issues there is usually a big problem].
- Fake COVID-19 Upload Leads to US Virgin Islands Arrest
- Watch until the end.
- Las Vegas visitor traffic was up 45% month-over-month in March to 2.2 million and that was with convention traffic still zero.
