Another demonstration of CRS/GDS insecurity

Zack Whittaker had a report yesterday for Techcrunch on the latest rediscovery of a continuing vulnerability affecting sensitive personal data in airline reservations that I first reported, both publicly and to the responsible companies, more than 15 years ago: computerized reservations systems and systems that rely on them for data storage and retrieval, including airline check-in Web sites, use a short, insecure, unchangeable, system-assigned, and fundamentally insecure "record locator" as tho...

                   Photo by Michel Gilliand The Real Reason Why Air France Stopped Flying the Concorde By Rob Mark The creation and nearly 30-year operational life of the French/Anglo Concorde, the world’s first operational supersonic airliner, is a rich history of cross-border cooperation and innovation at a time long before the personal computer revolution or the first cell phone.

Delta Air Lines has a monthly garage sale

Once a month, Delta Air Lines holds a "garage sale" at one of its facilities near their flight museum adjacent to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The New York Times' Jackie Snow visited this curious surplus sale. Turns out, many of the shoppers lining up to buy galley carts, oscilloscopes, earbuds, posters, branded silverware, and maybe even a scavenged coach class seat actually are Delta employees. From the NYT: Perry De Vlugt, a Delta flight attendant based in Salt Lake C...

Wi-Fi at 35,000 feet – it's coming, whether we like it or not

It was not so long ago that Wi-Fi at 35,000 feet was a pipe dream, leaving technophiles frustrated and everyone else eternally grateful. But the dawn of internet access in the sky is now and well truly behind us as more and more airlines equip their fleets with the technology. Last week low-cost Norwegian became the latest to announce that passengers on its long-haul flights would be able to browse the internet, send emails and generally while away the hours, from this year, with half its fleet ...
