A Delta Air Lines passenger allegedly struck a flight attendant — and now the FAA is proposing a $27,500 fine.
In other passenger news, a United Airlines traveler got his pepper spray past TSA screening — and accidentally deployed it on his flight just before takeoff. (As you do.)
This is huge news for little kids and their families: a Peppa Pig theme park — complete with muddy puddles — will open at Legoland Florida next year.
And the Virgin Hotel in Las Vegas (I love that phrase’s irony) will initially feature free parking and no resort fees. (What a concept!)
Here’s a fun twist that more airlines and credit card issuers may want to implement.

Ever wanted a free private jet trip? A Bahamian resort may very well give you one — but there’s a rather big catch involved.
Plus, the TSA seems confident that travel will return soon — and is hiring several thousand airport screeners.
Since the Blue Cash Preferred Card from American Express reintroduced its great welcome offer last week (waived annual fee the first year, $300 cashback bonus) and people are more budget-conscious than they’ve been in a while, I thought it’d be good to compare Amex’s two Blue Cash cards: the Everyday and Preferred.
