  1. Watched the 4 minute 38 second Fox segment via the link. Great work, Gary. Best to be on Fox, most viewers + all those 5 star Bangkok hotels carry Fox.


  2. Good job on the Fox interview. The AS code share stuff with AA is interesting. I wish they would expand this more in the Eastern US where AS is weak. I agree that the SLC routes are interesting.

  3. @DaninMCI thanks!

    @GUWONDER I’ve seen those reports but hand’t read a Hilton filing.

    @ED I don’t think anyone was watching tv yesterday…! I was thrilled they gave me four and a half minutes, though!
