Mixed news for those of us who fly. Mistakes by passengers still cause problems even though personnel is well trained and most flyers know and obey the rules. Some airplanes are having technical problems. I wonder how many had to reroute, cancel, etc. But some good news. Electric planes are evolving and becoming a possibility! Airplanes are a major source of pollution.

So, this is is Watt's Gnus:

PIA is an airline that flies from England to Pakistan. A recent flight from Manchester was delayed because a passenger opened an exit door thinking it was the toilet... heaven help me as I age.

American Airlines has grounded over 100 flights due to its 737-Max planes not being ready for re-certification. I don't fly American but any tightening of flights makes it more expensive for budget travelers like me.

Over 400 regional flights were cancelled on Sunday due to navigational problems. "The systems in question are on certain CRJ regional jets made by Canada’s Bombardier."

Electric planes may be in the offing! "Earlier this week, engineers, investors and journalists witnessed the hybrid-electric Ampaire 337 took flight above Camarillo Airport.

Thou shall not vape... nor smoke... not even in the restroom. I was on a bus once in the middle of Utah when something similar happened. "The passenger was not arrested but he may never again fly with Spirit: The deputy's report said the company banned him for life."
