News notes from around the interweb:
- Disney seems to have done a great job with their re-opening procedures but the best procedures will always run into the guests at the park:

- The mayor of Bridgeport, Connecticut is suing Delta Air Lines over a dog bite
- Virgin Atlantic finalizing $1 billion rescue deal that won’t dilute Delta’s stake and that won’t require government support either, let that be a lesson to you kids.
In 1994’s Speechless Michael Keaton explained “At the end of every Lassie, Timmy’s mom would say to him, You see, Timmy…’ She’d teach him a lesson.” Virgin Atlantic is teaching us one, are we listening?
- Live and Let’s Fly thinks a second airline bailout is coming. I still maintain, as much as airlines work hard to pick your pockets, and as much influence as they have with politicos, the idea is too absurd to actually happen and there’s not nearly as much legislative chaos this time to push through under the fog.
True, it’ll be framed as protecting union jobs (to get Democrats on board) and preventing layoffs (crucial to Trump one month before the Presidential election). But the dominant strategy for Democrats is actually to say they tried hard but the Republicans blocked them, let the job losses hurt the President’s re-election chances, and tell their base ‘next time will be different’ because they’re so close to controlling both houses of Congress and the Presidency.

- Not all the NBA players are happy with their Disney accommodations, but their complaints on social media don’t really resonate with fans.
