News and notes from around the interweb:
- Two Singapore Airlines A380s towed along public road (HT: David H.)
- Marriott hotel worker took cash deposits from guests, kept the money for herself instead of applying it against their folios. Eventually after enough people complain it’s not hard to track who did it… Not a good way to commit crime.
- Air Seychelles goes into bankruptcy
- Washington National airport’s ‘National Hall’ will soon be behind security. The airport wants passengers “to have all that free time to go through the restaurants and the stores.” But it’ll mean a greater distance from curb to gate, which is the opposite of the purpose of an airport, to get somewhere quickly.
The only passengers that really benefit from this are those connecting through DCA who’d otherwise need to take the bus between piers (and the C pier is already connected to the new regional jet pier by the way).
- I finally experienced how awful the new LaGuardia terminal is. Sure, the building is aesthetically more pleasing, but who needs a water feature? The time from curb to gate – with zero wait at security – was half the actual flying time of my New York to DC trip. Is it wrong that I miss this?
- What to expect on your next flight, if there’s any food at all?
Can't quite put my finger on it, but you get the feeling that China Airlines has given up. pic.twitter.com/Hi4mlg1MpZ
