Yes, there is travel related news out there other than TSA and DL/NW 253.  Listed below in no particular chronological order:

  • Japan Airlines’ stock dropped 24 percent today.  Apparently the wheels have started to come off and bankruptcy is a real possibility.
  • Jeff Smisek takes the left seat at Continental on 1/1.
  • Continental, United and ANA filed for antitrust immunity.
  • Royal Caribbean obtained financing for Allure of the Seas.  🙂  Sorry, just couldn’t leave that out.  You know I love cruising.
  • I received my Delta Medallion card in the mail.  I heart being Medallion again.

Man, it feels good to talk about something other than terrorism and TSA!  Now back to serious stuff!  🙂
