Boeing 737 MAX Selling Well
The Boeing 737 MAX aircraft are a tweak of the previous version. They are quieter and more efficient, but still the same basic design (just lengthened tube) from before I was born. The new model is also selling well. That's too bad for passengers. Boeing needs a sales flop before they will take out a blank sheet of paper. The 737 is cramped and a fresh design would be more comfortable for passengers.

Hilton Points are Almost Worthless
Hilton out did Delta. Hilton award nights are dynamically priced and wildly expensive. I'm an SPG guy, but was looking around to see if better hotel program value could be found. It's been a while since I looked at Hilton and YIKES, awards got expensive. I think I'll go Marriott and Hyatt.

Farewell Crossover Rewards
The SGP - Delta Airlines reciprocal benefits program ends July 15th. I got a few free checked bags and some bonus points from it. I was also 1 away from clearing an upgrade. I'm an infrequent Delta flyer, so it was of limited value to me. Still, I'd rather have it than not.

Wasn't bad at all
My carry on baby was a great flyer yesterday. She didn't mind it at all or make a peep. There were loud children and people watching TV without headphones, far worse to sit next to than my kid.

Pilatus is an interesting aircraft company based in Switzerland. They have always been the rugged option for operations in less than idea areas. Here's a video of their new PC-24 taking off and landing on a dirt strip.

JP Morgan Reserve Card Guide to Benefits
JP Morgan mailed me an updated guide to benefits outlining changes coming in August to the Reserve card. I don't have a JP Morgan Reserve card. It does look cool.

Boeing Buys Embraer - Kinda, Not Really
Boeing is taking over Embraer's commercial aircraft operations, kinda through a joint venture. I guess it was cheaper than designing a new aircraft like the 717 and smaller than the 737-700. This is a response to Airbus taking over the C-Series aircraft. It's all confusing, but blank sheet aircraft design for Airbus and Boeing is only for wide bodies these days.
