News and notes from around the interweb:
- Delta reverses a decision to cut travel benefits for 19,000 baggage handler, ticket counter, and other service employees who work for a subsidiary – Delta Global Services – in which the airline has sold a majority of ownership.
Existing employees will keep current benefits, new employees will receive far less, and because of the change in control everyone will have to pay taxes on what they receive.

- Delta says you’ll be able to pay for all of the airline’s optional services using their (hyperinflated) currency starting in 2021. Personally I’d consider blowing all my SkyMiles now while they’re selling glasses of Dom Perignon for 1750 miles apiece.
