News and notes from around the interweb:

- On average pilots do not share the politics of other unionized work groups at an airline…
- Alaska Airlines, which has probably done the best of any airline delivering service while other carriers use Covid as an excuse for cutbacks, will reduce service through end of January at the behest of flight attendants who want less work for same pay. This is the same airline that made a music video parody to explain why there’s no material Covid risk in the cabin. It appears that here they’re reacting to threats of a sick out?
- Plaid class action settlement if you’ve linked a bank account to anything online odds on you’ve used this service and are eligible for a piece of the $58 million settlement, how much yet is unclear. (HT: Doctor of Credit)
- One free year of Wall Street Journal online access for Visa Signature cardholders you enter the first 8 digits of a credit card to validate you have a Visa Signature, but you don’t provide your credit card so you aren’t automatically billed at the end of the year. Back around 2014 I claimed a year-long print subscription that came with digital and just kept putting the subscription on vacation hold and digital access lasted seven years. (HT: Doctor of Credit)
