Well, the FAs union has come out against letting a passenger's family into the airport's food court or shopping area. Apparent logic: this might interfere with an FA's job of thwarting terrorists in the terminal building.

You know it is some place for FAs to be when TSA appears to be comparatively more compassionate towards the general public!

Anyway, I never thought that Labor Day or Any Day should be an occasion to defend or even tolerate idiocy.

They didn't make that announcement on Monday. And there was gratuitous union bashing. The timing was suspect.

As for defending or tolerating idiocy, if you read Gary's blog, you should see that every day.

Can't deny Gary's a hardworking individual, but with more of his focus going on his "real job" the blog has really fallen of a cliff quality wise. No real analysis of anything, no detailed trip reports just a steady stream of credit card shilling, click bait and general s**tposting.

I got sucked into his libertarian-lite 'unpopular take' on airlines capping prices for hurricane evacuees. It was certainly far more OMNi/PR than points, miles and travel.
