News and notes from around the interweb:

  • Passenger saves the life of 3 month old baby on Spirit Airlines flight to Orlando

    On my flight back from Pittsburgh to Orlando, a baby stopped breathing three rows ahead of me. Thankfully a nurse (Tamara Panzino) was able to get the baby to breathe again. (1) pic.twitter.com/6oDgFCG7FS

  • Sharing this even though I expect it’s quite old. Looks like China Eastern to me, and no masks.

  • Visa, Mastercard, and American Express all classify gun stores with new merchant code seen by many as a precursor to being pressured into banning such sales.

  • New Zealand scraps on-arrival tests, vaccination mandate, mask-wearing on flights

  • I knew that American Airlines humanitarian fares were ending, just not that they were retained for LDS. I suspect that the LDS contract is more lucrative with less leakage – HUMN fares generally were bookable by bucket shops. They’re a great price discrimination tool for group business from a very price sensitive customer group, but not if they’re booked by others outside the target audience. Instead of fixing that, American eliminated most of the fares.

  • Remember when there were ticket offices?
