New and notes from around the interweb:
- Alaska Airlines status match now only gives you 90 days of status, with a challenge to keep it. (HT: Nick Ewen)
- As I’ve said before, you can’t ask permission to use the lavatory when the seat belt sign is on you will be told no like this Irish woman was, to quite ill effect. The flight attendant doesn’t want liability, and the airline doesn’t either if something happens. However they usually don’t actually mind. That Air Canada crew apparently did mind and the woman is receiving travel vouchers because of it.
- Lufthansa Technik has mocked up an executive transport interior for an Airbus A220
- Housekeeping doesn’t always clean. Here’s what it looks like.
- What was the Marriott data breach, how did it happen, and what was the impact?
- No more complimentary buy on board items for Virgin Australia business class effective October 9
- The economy seats on the British Airways A350 that don’t recline They do get an extra inch of legroom though.
