News and notes from around the interweb:
- 13 sexist vintage airline ads from the ’60s: “Someone may get a wife” (HT: Dan R.)
- “I recommend this place for all those who feel they are sick of Europe, but actually are not, but who would be, unless they came here.”
- Passenger on Delta flight with cracked windshield says it was, ‘scariest 10 minutes of my life’
- CrewMe is Tinder for pilots and flight attendants.
- The Amtrak co-brand credit card will return in the fall and it will still be offered as a MasterCard. No word yet on who the issuer will be.
- They call it nudging but it should come as no surprise that design elements, how gate space is arranged and what kind of furniture is offered, affect our stress level at the airport. (HT: Paul H.)
