It's too bad that DL didn't try for a JV/investment deal with GOL, which IMO was a nice little airline. The good news is that it's Chapter 11 and not Chapter 7.

Does anyone know why LATAM filed...

If you have time, from Munich it's a pretty drive (or train ride, especially on the regional trains) to Salzberg. Stuff that's much easier to do with a car (day trip) from Munich would include Dachau...

I never realized that a moose (2 meters) is bigger than an adult kangaroo (nose to tail, 1.5 meters), but this makes sense.

I've stayed here in the past, and even without the COVID-19 closures and service issues, I wouldn't it consider it to be worth anywhere close to $600-800 per night. IMO it's one of the worst RCs and...

1. In the context of parks reopening, I heard someone describing the social distancing rule of two meters as one moose. It's a cute way to visualize the distance.
