News and notes from around the interweb:
- JetBlue’s CEO: “We just simply can’t afford to offer the best in every area.”
- Is United treating some two day trips as part of the same duty day in order to avoid giving flight attendants a full night’s rest? Modern scheduling software is rough. United says what they are doing is legal and applies only to a small number of trips. Of course this couples with cutting the number of flight attendants for long haul business class and it seems like itmso all adds up to less good service for customers.
- Drunk woman abuses, spits at Air India crew when they wouldn’t serve her more alcohol. The reason this is news is that this happened and she wasn’t even an Air India pilot.
- Radisson double elite nights and points since we’re now in the slow period for business travel, natch.
- Here’s what Amazon walked away from in Atlanta — are you Delta flyers jealous?
What Georgia offered Amazon: A state-funded academy to train its employees. An exclusive lounge – with free parking – at the world’s busiest airport. A dedicated car on MARTA. And more than $2B in publicly-funded incentives. #gapol https://t.co/cyG7ME6qhN

- When a passenger complained their row didn’t have a window, a flight attendant drew one. Gives new meaning to ‘Words From the Window Seat’ on American Airlines.
