Some colleagues and I walked down the Las Vegas Strip about midnight during a recent work trip. We saw a variety of people: tourists of all shapes, sizes, races, demeanors, and sobriety levels. Attraction hype people. Security and police officers. Vendors. Street performers.
You know, the typical Vegas Strip crowd. (Really, people you may see in any major city.)
We also saw some families with children in strollers.
One of my work friends asked our group a colorfully-phrased, rhetorical question: Continue reading
Delta Air Lines flight 122 from Boston to Edinburgh, Scotland diverted to Portland Jetport in Portland, Maine, for an emergency landing. WMTW news writes that the crew reported engine problems Saturday night and landed at PMW. (Better to find out while close to land than, you know, over the Atlantic.) “Officials say the aircraft landed safely and no one was hurt,” MTW says. FlightAware data indicates the 757-200 departed Logan at 10:10 PM and arrived … Continue reading
Rejoice, red-eye haters! Delta will launch a daytime flight between JFK and London Heathrow (LHR) next year.
Fights and frights on Delta flights this week. And planes could become real dog and pony shows, thanks to the DOT’s new service animal ruling.

Welcome to a regular feature on the Renés Points blog. This blog series covers in a “rookie” way either a Delta or travel related theme and attempts to break down to a basic level each topic. You can read up on all the previous posts HERE. Now on to this featured topic. CLEAR is a service both René and I love. Many Delta flyers — not just elites — can take advantage of fairly significant … Continue reading
A Delta employee faces firearm charges after bringing a loaded gun with him to work at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL).
A former NetJets pilot is suing the company for sexual discrimination, claiming she was fired for being “too short” to fly the Embraer Phenom — while male candidates with height issues were reassigned to other aircraft.
Delta’s increased success — a reported 90% load factor — means more SkyMiles elite Medallions jockeying for benefits and perks. Complimentary first class upgrades are harder to score — thanks to FCM (sometimes for just $2). And autumn is around the time of year we hear about Delta’s SkyMiles “enhancements,” which many of us know is code for “devaluations.” (Don’t forget Delta SkyMiles is consistently voted the first runner-up (not the winner) in a … Continue reading
A Southwest Airlines pilot whose father was killed in combat flew his dad’s remains home last week — to the same airport where he last saw him alive 52 years ago.
Delta has preemptively issued a weather waiver for New York City area airports potentially affected by storms tomorrow, Tuesday, August 13.
