News and notes from around the interweb:
- JetBlue sued for serving snacks labeled kosher that probably weren’t kosher the package displayed a certification, and the company whose trademark it is says they never certified the product. JetBlue said they had no idea and are investigating. Whoops.
- Lemon and lime wedges return to United’s first class beverage service
- Washington Dulles rail service update: DC studied the project in 1971. The Virginia assembly autthorized a project in 1995. A dedicated revenue source began in 2005. The first phase of the projectt opened late in 2014. And now they’re shooting for end of 2022 to actually (almost) reach Dulles airport. The idea of actually building the train out to the terminal was a cost cut years ago.
IT’S HAPPENING! This morning, @WMATA took control of the #SilverLineExtension with a planned opening for later this fall. We’ll continue working with our partners at #WMATA as they conduct final testing on the new rail line. pic.twitter.com/IPVc8Xdx0N
