I don't doubt that there are many tens of millions in NRE in the design, implementation, and test of the changes, but it's probably mostly in the testing and analysis. From the description in the...

If the cost is really only $14K/aircraft as stated in the article on the FT front page that's pretty minor. A coffee maker can cost more than that.

I flew out of LAX in April when nobody was flying and the lounges were still open, and the sign was still out and there was still a waitlist to get in. If you get onto the waitlist an hour before...

Food box also seems to depend on departure time. I had at least one evening (I think 7:55 pm departure) flight where they brought the basket around and no boxes, and this was after they'd started...

I think it's been on most or all of my recent LA-PDX flights, but if it's a food box flight I think they only bring it around on request.

Many of them started it with SARS (the 2003 version) where people who had the disease were almost certain to have a fever, so it was a matter of updating things. Even if not everybody who is...

I've sat in F 9 times (all between PDX and LAX/BUR/ONT) since early March and have yet to sit next to another person. Most of the time they're booking either 50% for 73X, or 2/3 on the E75s, but...

PDX-ONT today on an E75 had a variety of drinks available in F, though still not the full complement. The most remarkable things were a) a cup with ice for my coke, and b) FA came around and gave me...

They do also break things up a little funny there - they put Pasadena and Altadena in "The Verdugos" but I don't think you'd find many people in either who didn't think they lived in the SGV. I'd put...
