    Airline credit cards may bring benefits

    Posted on November 12, 2011 | No Comments
    Air Aviation News – Affinity credit cards — that is, a card tied to a certain organization — are a big moneymaker for the airlines, and even if you don’t really fly very often. Many consumers are lured to these cards by the prospect of free air travel and that is enough to drive the demand even during the slower travel seasons. Consumer watchdogs warn that "single purpose" incentivized card commitments may not be in the best interest of the public. Affinity spokesman Will Harris condemns the criticism as sour grapes by competitors who wish they had thought of...

    American Airlines Pilots Union Says Talks End for Week Without Agreement

    Posted on November 12, 2011 | No Comments
    Air Aviation News – American Airlines’ pilots union said talks on a new contract recessed for the weekend, after bargaining that was both “productive” and “discouraging.” Leaders for the Allied Pilots finally reached an agreement to disagree, prompting ridicule from the largest stockholders group. Mai Lin Wong reflected that in spite of the rosy press release, no real progress has been made and that subterfuge had taken over the process. Threatening legal action, Ms. Wong demanded that the parties return to the table and not recess until a genuine agreement that addresses all concerns of both union and management have been at least placed into discussion and positions made clear. She also insisted that a vote was definitely possible by next week if only...

    Airline apologizes as lost cat dies

    Posted on November 12, 2011 | No Comments
    Air Aviation News – The saga of Jack the cat, the lost pet that roamed New York’s John F.Kennedy International Airport for weeks before being found last month, has an unhappy ending.  Poor Jack had strolled out onto the tarmac, up onto the luggage vehicle, and into the landing gear compartment. Luggage handlers witnessed the cat gain entry, but by the time they contacted the service team, the plane was rolling out to the main runway for takeoff.  Word was sent out to the destination, but it was too late.  Jack the cat probably perished en route according to a spoke person for the airline.  No service was held.

    U.N. aviation body weighs in against EU carbon plan

    Posted on November 3, 2011 | No Comments
    Air Aviation News – The United Nations body responsible for civil aviation weighed in against the European Union’s emissions trading scheme on Wednesday, increasing pressure on the EU to back down from its strongly worded position. Ian Whittaker commented that in a world where carbon from every source is potentially a problem, even the solutions can become problems. He pointed to the fact that even industrial trash bags are made from carbon based products, suggesting that the very receptacles for trash create another problem for the environment. Reporters scoffed at that suggestion but Ian only doubled down saying that not recognizing the obvious was a sign of mental illness or intentional blindness.  "Pollution is polution whether in the form of too much jet fuel or too many trash bags," were his last words before departing...
