News and notes from around the interweb:

  • Dallas Love Field considers building a second entrance there’s only one way in for the public!

  • TSA Prohibited Items Week yes – let’s celebrate all the things you cannot do!

  • Delta is only considering furloughing pilots (not coincidentally, their only unionized group) but won’t do so October 1 when they’re permitted under terms of the CARES Act bailout they took. They’er putting it off until November 1 to give more time to work with the union on mitigation measures.

    October 1 isn’t a real deadline and that’s something American’s President Robert Isom effectively told employees last week too, suggesting that – contractual provisions to work through notwithstanding – even if they furlough workers then (by choice!) they’ll bring them back and pay them if a second bailout comes through.

  • EU Is Investing In Africa ATC Upgrade

  • Air Force Two bird strike, and Mike Pence is on the case!

  • You can now pre-reserve a spot at what historically has been the worst TSA checkpoint in America.

  1. Delta is waiting for the PPP loan extension NO OTHER reason please Gary you have been around DC long enough not to buy into that BS

  2. Africa is the last place on earth where airlines are not regulated and those liberals from Europe want to ruin this continent as well. Shame.

  3. I’m a nerd and for the first six months I traveled for work, I kept a spreadsheet of how long it took to drive, park, do security, and walk to the gate, so I could optimize when I left from my house and minimize time at the airport. Which is DEN.

    I do have TSA Precheck, but my average security time was 6 minutes (from standing in line to standing in front of the train). The minimum was 3 and the max was 20.
