I thought newspapers were those things we rolled up and rapped on the noses of those pesky (fake) emotional support animals that ran wild in the lounges and airports and in the air... did I miss something?

DP:

This morning AC105 during J preboard newspapers, asked for G&M and advised none were loaded.

Then 10 minutes later, the FA comes to me with a G&M. She stated that being TP bird (our Lions), there were a million compartments and that they found a large stack of G&Ms. ^

I was in the in AC Cafe at YYZ and there was an employee on a conf call discussing the strategic direction of MLL in the coming year.

Tried to eavesdrop, she did mention that all MLL would go press reader only except YUL, YYZ, YYC, YVR, CDG, FRA and another one that I missed. These lounges will retain some paper material.

There was also a part about encouraging business customers to download the press reader app and give them different access in flight or something along those lines.

Interesting that LHR wasn't mentioned. Back in the T3 joint SK/AC London Lounge days, they had papers for what seemed like every major newspaper from around the world in stock.

The "missing" one was probably LHR yes. Remember I was evesdroping while catching a quick bite and I know there was 3 international MLL mentioned.

Last Friday there were a whole stack of Globe and Mails at the YUL Domestic MLL at 5:30 PM. Nice to see in fact.
