– Singapore Airlines’ low-fare subsidiary Scoot has added a no-kids section they’re calling “ScootSilence” (as if adults don’t ever make any noise). It’s basically a Premium Economy section right behind business class that offers 4 inches more legroom for an extra $15.
– United Airlines has applied to serve Chengdu, China, from San Francisco with a 787 beginning next June.
– German leisure carrier Condor is now offering vegan meal options. I don’t know why this is interesting, other than as US carriers have reduced special meal options, leave it to a German airline focusing on sun-seekers to provide a choice of “an antipasti platter with couscous salad, a stuffed tomato with diced cucumber, Italian vegetable terrine with olives, fruit salad, sunflower bread, vegetable spread or margarine, mineral water and cashew nuts.” Special meals cost between 7 and 15 Euro, depending on flight length.
– Dutch Antilles Express has suspended operations. The carrier served a number of Caribbean destinations, as well as flights from Curacao to Orlando and Miami.
