  1. Based upon the white paint above the cockpit windows…unless it’s one of their theme planes…it doesn’t look like a Southwest plane to me.

  2. Unsurprising that the IAD Cap One lounge is already crowded, since it is right after TSA Precheck. But I’m wondering if this means the TK lounge over in A/B will be less crowded with PP holders now.

  3. I returned a Hertz vehicle to a U.S. airport this past April, and four days later it was checked in over 700 miles away at another airport (while I was already on another continent). I was charged over $1800 more than I should have been. When I called Hertz they allegedly could confirm from the vehicle’s GPS history that it was returned on time at the airport I actually returned it to, and reversed the excess charge.
