This week’s featured link: Aviation and the Media Survey There’s a lot of bad reporting out there about aviation, and now the American Aviation Institute is trying to get feedback on the aviation news media in this survey. This is meant for people who are close to the industry only. I’m not being compensated for this. I just hope that a healthy response with clear results could help to improve media coverage of this industry. (There’s always hope…) Two for the ...

SUKMA: IT took 11 years and 13 tenders issued repeatedly amid Maoist threat to accomplish the construction of a desperately needed bridge over river Shabri in the worst Naxal-affected district of Sukma in Chhattisgarh. As one drives on the 8.5 metre wide new bridge built at a height of 17 metres from the water level, the impression of being in an area dominated by Left-wing extremism disappears. Entering the bridge from Dornapal in Chhattisgarh, one has to travel just half-a-kilometre to cross...

It’s not a long read, but you can see everything that the airline has been testing out. Two for the road: Delta Com...

This week’s featured link: Why Is Wearing Leggings to the Airport Such a Shameful Thing? – Vogue A few have asked me to comment on this whole stupid kerfuffle where United denied boarding to a couple of pass travelers for wearing leggings (which aren’t allowed per pass travel rules). All I can say is that there are dress code rules, and pass travelers need to obey them. It is the responsibility of the employee to know the rules and pass them on to anyone who is riding on a pa...
A group of university students is demanding that a memorial building named after a major donor is renamed over vague, alleged links to slavery. Activists at the University of Bristol want the Wills Memorial Building (pictured) – a major city landmark – to be stripped of its connection to Henry Overton Wills III. Wills, a 19th-century businessman and tobacco magnate, gave a large bequest (around $12million in today’s money) which funded the beginnings of a university in the Engl...
This week’s featured link: Dear Virgin America – Richard Branson’s Virgin Blog Richard Branson is a sad panda. His weepy goodbye to Virgin America is book-ended with digs at Alaska. That’s pretty crappy since Alaska just made him a whole lot richer. He acts like there was nothing he could do to save Virgin America from this fate, and he’s right. He was able to keep the airline afloat while it lost hundreds of millions of dollars for years. So when the time came...

I’d bet if JetBlue could get rid of these things today, it would. (And Bombardier would gladly be there waiting to sell some C Series aircraft.) But it can’t. So it’ll just keep complaining. Two for the road: Ex...
