News and notes from around the interweb:
- A visual representation of placing security over liberty at Washington National airport.
- The Trouble With the Memphis Airport: No Crowds the legacy Northwest Airlines hub is no longer as busy under Delta and the article compares it to former US Airways hub Pittsburgh. Of course San Jose, Nashville, Raleigh, St. Louis and San Juan used to be American Airlines hubs. Columbus and Las Vegas were America West hubs. Baltimore and Kansas City were US Airways hubs. AirTran, Frontier, and Midwest hubbed in Milwaukee. To name just a few.
- Qatar Airways Privilege Club raised award prices about 60% across the board for travel on their own flights, without notice and right after imposing a new award redemption fee. And the program was already much worse than Etihad Guest.
- Qatar Airways is improving premium cabin dining and that’s from an already high base.
- Chrome browser extension to search award availability efficiently across a range of dates (HT: David H.)
- Braniff pilots gather for one last cookout
- This is actually stupid on two levels.
