News notes from around the interweb:
- Access the Qantas LAX first class lounge for $150
- United is replacing Biscoff cookies with Oreo thins want to bet Oreo thins are cheaper? They only introduced Biscoff cookies last summer although it’s a cookie they’ve served in coach in the past – back in 2007 they actually reduced the size of the cookies to save money. Delta, for its part, crowned one passenger ‘Biscoff Queen’.
On my flight with @Delta Airlines I told the flight attendant that I love their cookies. Later two flight attendants came back with a crown made by their crew of the cookies calling me the “Biscoff Queen”!! pic.twitter.com/0aMDHQ7zIB
