News and notes from around the interweb:
- How the British Airways data hack was done
- United’s three-times weekly seasonal San Francisco – Papeete (Tahiti) service is going year round. Sadly it is operated by a Boeing 787 with no chance of Polaris business class seats.
- United is being sued over listeria at its Newark catering facility
- Union who wants to organize Delta flight attendants complains that the airline’s sick policy gives management discretion rather than being strictly rules-based, so it creates potential unfairness. Ironically (or not) it’s specifically this same lack of discretion that American’s unionized flight attendants are complaining about.
- The third ranking official at TSA was promoted to have oversight over federal air marshals after settling a sexual harassment suit with taxpayer money. Yep. Sounds about right.
- SAS EuroBonus increases the cost of Star Alliance awards ~ 18% without any advance notice to members so much for Scandinavia being a model for the U.S.
