After a crazy week of flying my last Delta 747, a tour of Gogo and yet another amazing (and informative) Chicago Seminars it is time to catch up on a few of the news stories I (and maybe you) missed this week!

I can not believe that one week from today I will be flying the new Delta A350. I hope the new Premium Select i.e. Premium Economy seats and service is all Delta has built them up to be. My review will be unaffected by the corporate spin machine I can promise you that! – René

  1. the microsoft arrangement was all about stealing SEA market share, nothing more. they should’ve known better that Windows Phone was a very dead platform, very early on.

    who knows if the incremental travel from the microsoft contract even managed to break even against the huge switching costs

  2. Hey Ed, MSP’s also bidding for Amazon. Would they be “well served” here?

  3. Switching to iDevices for the crew? Hmmm, wonder if the at means they’ll similarly swap out the Microsoft lounge for a genius bar at SEA ‘S’ Skyclub…

  4. I am a Microsoft user, and always have been. But, iOS has nice features, so hopefully things will run smooth.

  5. had Ipad issue atl to sfo sunday nite co-pilot had to open door and go find another Ipad before we could depart..late
