News and notes from around the interweb:
- People are traveling home anyway after catching Covid on vacation although it can lead to conflict:
“My boyfriend was at a conference. Then he was feeling sick and tested positive. He consulted everyone for advice about flying home (everyone but me, because he knew I would say absolutely not).
Once he made his decision to fly home he texted me: “heading home.” To which I told him I was disappointed in him.
My disappointment led him to rent a car and drive home instead of flying. Yay!
But he ghosted me, and then dumped me. Boo! We’ve since talked. But yeah, we’re broken up.” –Patty
- While the FAA is delaying introduction of eVTOL aircraft by years American Airlines will make pre-delivery payments and secure delivery slots for 50 aircraft that hold one pilot and four passengers.
- Amtrak just doesn’t make sense outside of dense corridors like those in the Northeast, yet we keep flushing good money after bad.
Delta has about 10 daily direct flights between Atlanta and Nashville. It takes about 1 hour, and a roundtrip ticket can be as low as $118 on Tues/Wed flights
