  1. Thanks to Gary I also received a check in the mail for $248!! Normally I ignore clickbait headlines like “make a quick $100” but never when they point to class action lawsuits. Living in socal has a few advantages and these weird recording class actions are definitely one of them. And next time I will know to sign up my wife!

  2. I didn’t know that Cathay had “outsourced” those lounges to the Peninsula Group. FWIW, I’ve always thought those clubs were well-above average for airport lounges when it came to food and beverage (the cocktail menus are certainly interesting). Heck, it was a little like being in a hotel lounge! Maybe this was the reason. Hopefully, Cathay will be able to maintain the quality managing the lounges themselves.
