Use Priority Pass Meal Credits To-Go and Emirates and American Lobbying TOGETHER?

News and notes from around the interweb:

  • Don’t have time to sit down and eat at Timberline Steaks in the Denver airport using your Priority Pass card? Use your $28 credit on a couple boxes of macarons to take with you. Clever.

  • Boeing facilities have twelve Tully’s coffee shops — one quarter of all the Tully’s. Those are going away, and Tully’s is speaking out.

    The company has been looking to drop the Boeing locations for more than a year because it was inefficient and unprofitable to serve “a company that can’t seem to ever make up its mind where it wants its employees based,” a Tully’s spokesperson wrote in a statement.

    “Boeing’s never-ending cost-cutting and moving thousands of jobs out of Seattle has had a huge impact on our business,” the statement said. “Opening and closing stores at Boeing due to the ever-changing whims of Boeing management is simply not profitable for Tully’s any longer.”

  • Strange bedfellows: Both American Airlines and Emirates have joined the ‘A Fair Tax on Flying’ lobbying campaign to call for a reduction in the UK’s Air Passenger Duty (the heavy tax on trips departing the UK).

  • How hotels think about overbooking

  • The Hyatt Regency Jacksonville sold for $110 million or about $116,000 a key.

  • I always get a good laugh from credit card articles by people who have no idea what they’re talking about.
