Did Naomi Campbell ditch Dolce & Gabbana for DuPont? And United is determined to sell more first class seats (probably something they learned from Delta).

Those stories and more in a few minutes. But first, here’s what we wrote this week at Rene’s Points.

Because travel waivers were so fluid this week, I’m leaving those posts out of the recap. Please visit this page on Delta’s website.

Delta announced major cuts on Friday. Big ones. Check any existing itineraries for schedule changes. And here’s some information if you need to postpone your Delta Amex companion certificate reservation.

René suggests Delta extends everyone’s Medallion status for a year.

In case you missed it last night, we posted something about Delta’s new safety video — and a reader who caught some very interesting behind-the-scenes action at a Delta Sky Club.

René is indefinitely done traveling for at least this year. I wrote about my plans. (Quick update: one of my business trips was canceled Thursday.)

Speaking of Sky Clubs: here’s some information on the new lounge coming to MSP’s G concourse!

Global Entry approvals (and some renewals) are taking a very, very long time.

As of post time, there’s still 50% off this travel surge suppressor. So that’s something positive.

What’s the hottest accessory is for New York tourists? Guns.

Florida told everyone who traveled internationally to self-quarantine for 14 days. Then it (sort of) changed its mind.

Were cruise ship passengers put in a Hunger Games situation on their boat?

A United passenger sneezed — and freaked out everyone so much that the plane was diverted.

Given these interesting times, René offered some advice as to whether or not it’s prudent to cancel your travel credit cards.

An American Airlines pilot tested positive for COVID-19.

Royal Caribbean and NCL suspended their brands’ cruises. Disney and Universal Studios Hollywood are closed as of today. If you think cruise lines are desperate now, wait until this coronavirus mess is (hopefully) over. Carnival is still sailing (no words…) — and you might even score free drinks by not canceling.

People leave some interesting items in their Ubers — and are more prone to lose items in certain cities!
