News and notes from around the interweb:
- Southwest meltdown time lapse.
This is a time lapse of the line at @SouthwestAir at @DENAirport at 6:30 am. So many people unable to get home, see family, missed events. 145 Southwest flights canceled out of DIA today. SW is citing air traffic control issues & wx. It announced employee vax requirement Oct. 4 pic.twitter.com/lGsz2Fmydi

- The subsidy ship sailed, we shoveled $79 billion in taxpayer money to the airlines and wrote the rules in a way that let them game us too. That ship has sailed. Now whenever an airline does something we don’t like we cry “but we gave them money, how can they do this?” (HT: @crucker)
I am working on legislation to require all companies that took bailouts to have to pay them back – in full – if they fire any employee for lack of vax per @JoeBiden’s unconstitutional order. https://t.co/62c02fGN3X

- Singapore Airlines will operate a 4-times weekly Singapore – Vancouver – Seattle flight with an Airbus A350-900 from December 3, 2021 – February 15, 2022. This is the first time in 12 years they’ve served Canada. The flight will be desginated for quarantine-free entry via Singapore’s Vaccinated Travel Lane requirements. Sadly for U.S. residents, only those who received their vaccine shots in a few states can access the electronic verification requirements.
