News and notes from around the interweb:
- Resort fees are in the hot seat. Here are 10 of the weirdest. (WaPo) Come to think of it I always liked the Sheraton in Waikiki whose resort fee includes the option that they’ll tell your kids you’re getting divorced.
Included in the resort fee here at the @SheratonPK is a “Keiki” (children’s) gift. They sent up the gift upon request, and, no joke, this is what arrived: “Dinosaurs Divorce, a Guide for Changing Families.” I think I’ve been #bonvoyed. Right, @bonvoyed?

- Plan to release millions of mosquitos on Maui
- Surprising absolutely no one, the ‘new Alitalia’ ITA Airways lost $500 million and had just $454 million left at the end of the year – $434 of which came from the Italian government in November.
- Season 3 of White Lotus will be in Thailand
- Miami cargo handler stole $1.2 million worth of Samsung phones, replacing them with sand bags which is both a crime and a qualification to work at the London Metal Exchange.
- The pricing is insane, and you have to be a Flying Blue Gold or above to book it, but Air France never instituted their limit of one first class award seat per flight.
- When will the ghost of the Peotone airport folly finally stop haunting Illinois? Does anyone want a South Chicago airport? (HT: @crucker)
$434 or $434 million?
“a qualification to work at the London Metal Exchange.” Heh, heh, heh….
Yes. The London Metal Exchange comment made me laugh, too.
Every overseas “friend” that I meet wants me to get him a phone.
I used to follow LIve and Let’s Fly commentary, but somehow got myself banned (maybe when I called out its arrogance?) I do enjoy most of your commentary. Keep it coming!
all politicians south of Roosevelt Road want a south Chicago airport.
