Fuel Spill On Delta Checked Baggage

News notes from around the interweb:

  • Fuel surcharges. (HT: @FakeKevinKugler)

  • Hosts report problems getting paid by Vrbo

  • United won’t serve stroopwafels on shorter flights that sweet, sweet Oreo money must be bigger than previously imagined.

  • American will fly a Boeing 787 Los Angeles – Seattle in order to operate its planned Seattle – Bangalore flight. It was only midweek that Parker told employees during an internal Q&A session that it was premature to say which base would get the flight. (HT: One Mile at a Time)

  • An Asiana Seoul – Hanoi flight turned back around after it was informed post-departure that Vietnamese authorities would insist that it land “at Van Don International Airport, around 140 kilometers away from Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi” over coronavirus fears.

  • The ultimate Southwest Airlines trick when the flight isn’t 100% sold out.

  • Poor life choices.

  2. They’ve reached out to affected passengers and generously offered 500 delta sky pesos to each

  3. Or just buy two seats. I bought the whole row on a B6 flight coming up in June.
