How Marriott Pivoted From Owning Bob’s Big Boy And Roy Roger’s To Marketing Hotels [Roundup]

News and notes from around the interweb:

  • The bot that tracks Elon Musk’s jet is still active (despite a cash offer to take it down) while its creator no longer tracks Mark Cuban’s plane because Cuban offered friendship, business advice and to meet at a Dallas Mavericks game next season.
  • The new British Airways first class food still looks like a good business class product to me.

  • Win concert tickets, flights, hotels and limo for you and 3 friends with Frontier Airlines CEO Barry Biffle you’re darned right I entered this sweepstakes (but would probably pass on the Frontier flights, no wifi, natch).

  • Marriott’s big pivot from food service to hotels. (HT: @JackHake) Meanwhile here’s the history of Hertz.

  • Germany to extend air travel mask mandate to April 2023

  • Marriott Bonvoy rule changes.

    Interesting to see @Marriott recognize the "Donetsk People’s Republic and Luhansk People’s Republic" – both Russian-occupied parts of Ukraine – if even to say that residents can't be members of @MarriottBonvoy.

    Still allowed in the Bonvoy program: Russians

  • Don’t bring pot through TSA in Texas

  • Those new United Airlines domestic interiors can’t come soon enough.

    @united this is what you get paying extra for first class? The plane is falling apart.
