News and notes from around the interweb:
- American Airlines signed on to President Trump’s “Pledge to American Workers” saying they’d “provide 22,000 workforce-training opportunities for its staffers during the next five years.” I know where they can start.
- Inside an Amazon Boeing 737 cargo plane
- JetBlue is suing Walmart because all uses of the word “jet” and a color apparently belong to them.
- Transportation Workers Union podcast with the head of the Southwest Airlines flight attendants’ union. She complains about Southwest Airlines slow walking access to information for the first time, standing in the way of negotiations and says the airline has become more adversarial over the past 5 years. The focus sounds heavily on reserves and scheduling.
- Off brand… Shark Tank‘s Robert Herjavec is doing sponsored twitter posts for La Quinta, which is Spanish for “Next to Denny’s” (false, when Sam Barshop founded the chain he bought the cheapest furnishings he could find and needed a Southwestern name to match). Hey, Robert, Westins are dog friendly…
I’ve got the cutest travel companion – Miss Lola! (sorry Kym ❤️ !!) We take her everywhere we go so I’m always grateful for pet friendly hotels like @LQ where furry family members are welcome ! #TakeYourDogToWorkDay #ad pic.twitter.com/dNTiuvLKzk
