News and notes from around the interweb:
- Hawaiian Airlines redoes their lounges. Nothing special, but much needed nonetheless.
- 30% off participating Starwood hotels in Germany, Austria, Switzerland.
- On Denver airport’s ban on the sale, advertisement, or even wearing of marijuana-related logos and related items. While airports have broad discretion as landlords over the retailers they lease to, and do not have to accept all advertisements offered, those restrictions have to be viewpoint neutral and this ban appears not to be. And there’s no universe in which they can ban passengers from wearing clothing with marijuana leave images.
- American’s pilots approved a new contract 2-1. America West pilots were 90% in favor. Captains supported the deal more than first officers. The Miami base was least-supportive (Miami and Philadelphia first officers as a group actually voted against).
- Instead of running quarterly promotions, Hilton plans to run only two general promotions this year, plus targeted promos. With hotels full, chains become increasingly less rewarding.
