News and notes from around the interweb:
- Thai Airways apologizes for charging a customer a second time because of their long name. Their name was too long to fit on the ticket, so it didn’t match their ID, and they were forced to buy a new ticket.
- An interview about the future of Aeroplan after Air Canada cuts the cord in 2020. Turning themselves into a low value per point program for travel purchases doesn’t seem like a winning strategy. Points transfers to miles programs in Canada are far more limited than in the U.S. and seems like it would be a better path, at least as an add-on..

- Amex has started allowing 13 year old authorized users
- Up to 3250 Aeroplan miles with Avis car rental
- Fine dining in the sky it troubles me that United, Delta, and American are included in this list. ANA and Singapore, yes. JAL sure. I’m not super impressed by Qantas meal service. Lufthansa tries too hard but the execution doesn’t quite work (Austrian’s efforts in business are better). Asiana is missing from this list..
