News and notes from around the interweb:
- 50% of premium passengers considering catering when choosing their airline. It’s not even always about cost, just bothering to pay attention to details. Don’t be lazy!
- Scott Mayerowitz, executive editor of The Points Guy, used all 11 of his and his wife’s Chase cards to take advantage of each card’s $10 per month GoPuff merchant-funded offer. He’s not who GoPuff had in mind when they thought they’d be acquiring Chase customers with this.
- Chase CEO on China. Tony Capuano would never.
While reiterating his bank’s commitment to doing business in China, Dimon said: “I made a joke the other day that the Communist Party is celebrating its 100th year – so is JPMorgan. I’d make a bet that we last longer.”
Dimon added: “I can’t say that in China. They are probably listening anyway.” He was speaking as part of a Boston College series of CEO interviews.
- United will be serving hot chocolate in all classes of service in December. It’s Ghirardelli chocolate, but it’ll be made with aircraft tank water. I like United using Illy coffee, but I still won’t drink it. I’ll be interested in passenger reports on the hot chocolate, the proportion of chocolate to water matters a lot here. I’m certain that Angelina’s on Rue de Rivoli it won’t be. I don’t even care that Angelina’s is a tourist trap…
- I am assured this sports radio host didn’t actually buy a separate ticket for their Thanksgiving turkey. Although it would have been awesome if they had. Still, it’s quite a carry on item.

- I just couldn’t bring myself to make this a standalone post. Maybe the most insane thing I’ve seen reported on a flight yet?
