Lufthansa Will Consider Bringing Back Airbus A380s

News and notes from around the interweb:

  • Aviation watchdog JonNYC says Lufthansa hasn’t ruled out the possibility of bringing Airbus A380s back into service next year.

  • British Airways Gold elite upgrade vouchers can now be used to confirm upgrades on American Airlines and it doesn’t have to be a BA codeshare. BA elites are about to find out how little C inventory American makes available.

  • Denver airport fired its head of parking for fairly shocking behavior, the question is how he lasted so long and why his superiors still have jobs – shouldn’t they be accountable for allowing the behavior?

    Internal documents, emails and personnel records obtained by The Denver Post reveal that by early April, employee concerns about the workplace culture in the Parking and Transportation Department had grown so widespread that DIA brass hired an outside investigative firm to dig deeper. For months, scrutiny had focused on the leadership of Winfred “Herald” Hensley, the senior vice president in charge of the department.

    While the workplace probe still is underway, DIA says, Hensley is gone. Chief Operating Officer Steve Jaquith fired the nearly 16-year DIA veteran on May 5.

  • This Delta flight attendant is “disgusted” by the “lack of leadership” by the flight’s captain.

  • Washington National airport will have no southbound metro train service September 10 – October 22

  • Canada, Australia and numerous other ‘Covid cautious’ countries have dropped pre-travel testing requirements. Starting Saturday Israel won’t require them either. But the U.S. which basically has almost zero other mandatory Covid precautions persists in requiring them for international air arrivals, telling those with Covid to fly to Mexico or Canada and drive across the border.

  • Endorse.

  1. i am so sick of hearing about this airlline. somehow they get 5 stars on skytrax when they are mediocore at best. I flew with them 2 months ago, they pulled out some putrid a330 real mildew smell. last time i was on such a plane was with ATA around 18 yrs ago.
    They think bec they belong to the “superior” german race they are automatically a good airline.
