News and notes from around the interweb:
- Complicated politics of running a big city airport. If you believe the head of Atlanta’s airport was fired because of long TSA lines, I have a terminal building I’d like to sell you.
- Starting July 1 Delta will make all its inflight entertainment — whether streamed or seatback — free. I don’t get inflight entertainment at all (except for Channel 9), it doesn’t matter at all to me but I know it’s important to others. Much more important to me are power ports and internet, and I bring my own things to watch. Still if you’re going to have it, free is good.
- Sexual harassment of flight attendants
- 80th anniversary of DC-3
- Passenger claims lack of legroom almost killed him. Turbulence kept him in his seat for a long haul flight, and he was diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis, but that’s not really a function of legroom.
