Delta Diamond Downgrade: Top Elites No Longer Get To Board First [Roundup]

News and notes from around the interweb:

  • Delta SkyMiles Diamonds no longer board with first class
  • Elon Musk denies the report that he’s going to build his own airport.

    Not true. Tesla is 5 mins from Austin International airport. Would be silly to build another private airport, however the existing commercial airport needs another runway, as Austin is growing fast!

  • Outlets are misreporting a story about significant punishment of a passenger who “admitt[ed] to going maskless” on an American Airlines flight. The punishment isn’t about the mask, it’s for drinking his own alcohol on board, shouting expletives at and attempting to hit a flight attendant, and escalating after a formal warning.
