News and notes from around the interweb:
- I talked to NPR about mistake fares
- The official overseeing Chicago’s aviation police has been fired after his officers dragged a United passenger off a flight, and after his questionable service in Chicago government was revealed.
- Woman may sue Delta over groping incident
- Boeing figured out how to roll Trump on trade
- Qantas refreshing a 747’s first class even though seats are sold as business.
Airline Hub Buzz claims the primary reason for the refresh “would be that the aircraft will be used by Constellation Journeys, an established travel company, for a private ’round the world’ charter” from April 2018 which will see these seats once again sold as first class.
In addition to Sydney-Santiago flights, other routes which most see these classic Boeing 747s include Tokyo and Johannesburg – so if you’ve got status on your side, check your seating options online and see if you can snare one of these first class suites in rows 1 through 4.
- It seems obvious and yet.. Spirit Airlines now believes it “will make more money if it stops consistently irritating customers.”

- Etihad says they stand behind air berlin even as losses continue to mount. What else are they going to say, especially as their major investment in Alitalia falls apart?
