  1. gary, why do you put a link to an article that’s behind a paywall? the story interests me but i can’t read it and i’m not about to subscribe to a website for one article.

  2. ben senise-He is1000%correct — perhaps you believe you “MUST” fill the blog everyday and try to just do it the easy way and pick stories form the web so that it will save you time -this why I read you only sometimes vs. in past all the time follow you

  3. I flew AA with the tablets in int’l business instead of built-in screens for the first time this week. I have to say it’s really annoying. It seemed like half the power plugs or bricks weren’t working right so a bunch of the tablets had low batteries and couldn’t last anywhere near the entire flight.

    Also, the collection process at the end flight was a disaster and meant that breakfast service was really poor. They started collecting the things from passengers an hour before arrival and throughout the breakfast service but did thankfully let me keep mine for an extra 20 minutes to finish my movie. But it meant half the flight attendants in business class were focused on the tablets and not on breakfast. I never got a drink, despite being asked what I wanted four times.
