Passengers on a nearly empty American Airlines flight purportedly had to sit next to one another — for a completely head-shaking reason.

Meanwhile, some flight attendants are training to make differences in hospitals.

Those are some of the travel headlines that came across my radar today that I thought you, too, may find interesting.

American Airlines Allegedly Crammed Passengers Together on Nearly Empty Plane

Social distancing be dAAmned!

Reports indicate American Airlines made a flight’s 11 passengers sit together — even though the plane was almost empty. Why? The passengers purchase basic economy tickets — and seating them elsewhere would have been an upgrade.

Their flight’s cabin crew reportedly allowed the passengers to move seats.

Nevada Extends Casino Closures

A day after several Las Vegas resort companies announced plans to reopen on May 1, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak ordered casinos remain closed until April 30.

Something tells me that May 1 day might not work out.

    We all know that Basic Economy isn’t a class as in which type of seat you sit in, it’s all to do with the flexibility of the fare. It wouldn’t have been an upgrade. Either the flight attendant was badly informed or someone made this up.

  2. What about MIA-MVD? Interesting in that I was booked on a set of flights in July that were cancelled and also the impact of the early retirement of the 767.
