Two Tourists Pull A Mask Prank – And Get Kicked Out Of Bali

News and notes from around the interweb:

  • United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby mocks State Department travel warnings and he’s absolutely correct.

  • Two tourists ordered to leave Bali after mask prank

    A U.S.-based YouTuber and a Russian influencer were ordered off Indonesia’s resort island of Bali on Friday after recording themselves defying mandatory mask-wearing with some imaginative makeup.

    Clips of the video created by Josh Paler Lin and Leia Se and posted two weeks ago show the two duping supermarket guards with a painted surgical mask after they were refused entry because Se was unmasked.

  • Hawaiian Airlines card has 70,000 mile bonus offer after $2000 in purchases within 90 days, $99 annual fee. (HT: Doctor of Credit)

  • JetBlue’s creepy new inflight entertainment.

  • My links for elevated Delta co-brand offers reverted to lower initial bonuses (no more 90,000 SkyMiles). The Points Guy says they exclusively still have links that offer these bigger bonuses, but that’s not quite correct because the personal card offers are still available by referral, and there’s now a better targeted offer still.

  1. Some anti-mask morons got thrown out of a country. Good. Hopefully they lose their channels are a result of this.
