Airline passengers denied boarding because of elevated temperatures will receive refunds from certain carriers.

And that may come in handy for those who fly American Airlines — because that carrier is ending its social distancing measures on flights.

Those are some of today’s travel headlines I thought you, too, may find interesting.

Potentially Ill Passengers Eligible for Refunds

Fox News Travel reports that seven major US airlines will issue refunds to passengers who temperatures are deemed by the TSA to be too high.

Alaska, American, Delta, Hawaiian, JetBlue, Southwest, and United “will follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance on elevated temperatures, which the public health institute defines as those of 100.4 degrees F or higher.”

American Airlines Ending Social Distancing on Flights

American will no longer block middle seats on its flights. The change takes effect on July 1.

Delta Adding Flights This Summer — But That’s Probably It for the Year

Delta Air Lines is adding 1,000 flights back into its schedule. However, the carrier doesn’t expect much more than that through 2020.

Masks in Vegas: Good News and Bad News

The LVRJ reports lots of people in Las Vegas are wearing masks — but not correctly. (Folks, it’s a mask. It’s not that damn hard.)

$8,000 in Travel Tax Credits for Couples?!

We wrote a few weeks ago about the Explore America tax credit that was being bandied about. But it’s actually been proposed — and TravelPulse reports, “In the proposal, the vacation credit would increase to $8,000 for citizens who file jointly and dependent children would add another $500 each. The tax break would be retroactive to January 1.”

  1. It is not that people don’t know how to wear masks correctly, it is that they elect not to. It is a peaceful way of protesting, in lieu of burning down airports or occupying airplanes.
