News and notes from around the interweb:
- Vistara and Air India could merge with Singapore Airlines owning a stake
- Marriott’s CEO, like predecessor Arne Sorenson before him, recommended China’s “great road map for other markets around the world as they look to chart their recovery” from Covid-19. So how’s life in China going under Plan Capuano?
At the entrance to every public space — restaurants, apartment complexes, even public restrooms — is a printed-out QR code that people must scan with their phones to log their visit. Everyone also has a personal health code, which uses test results and location history to assign a color. Green is good. Yellow or red, and you may be sent to quarantine.
- The smell of nail polish remover in a passenger’s bag gets people sick, plane has to return to the gate. The details are worse.
- Furious woman hurls bottle at airline passenger and launches foul-mouthed rant at flight stewards when they ask her to take her DOG off knees
- American Airlines Chief Commercial Officer Vasu Raja, nothing he hasn’t said before but always interesting and basically right.
- Good riddance to the genuinely disgusting ‘turkey sandwich’ American Airlines had still been serving. Meanwhile beef jerky buy on board in coach is a ‘test’. What does it mean to pass?
AA: No more turkey sandwiches. RIP. pic.twitter.com/9625aekgBc
