In Data-Driven South Korea, AI is Monitoring 3,200 Senior Citizens

The search habits of thousands of South Korean senior citizens "are being monitored through virtual-assistant smart speaker technology," writes Slashdot reader shirappu. The AP reports that around 3,200 people across the country, "mostly older than 70 and living alone, have so far allowed the SK Telecom speakers to listen to them 24 hours a day since the service launched in April 2019." It's part of a larger look at whether technology has become too invasive, in a country where health authoriti...

Air NZ, Cathay Pacific Cuts Highlight the Death of the True Fifth Freedom Flight

The 1944 Chicago Convention was a landmark agreement that, among other things, pushed the global air travel industry to create a defined set of “freedoms” of the air which would guide what routes airlines from individual countries could and couldn’t fly. The so-called “fifth freedom” has long been one of the more well-known and controversial ones. It is also on its way to the dustbin of history, at least in its truest form. The fifth freedom grants “the right to fly between two foreign coun...

My Life on a 747

As anyone who happens to be flying to or through Atlanta this week knows, it has not been a good week for Delta. The Sunday power outage in Atlanta forced airlines to cancel hundreds of flights and put holiday travel plans in limbo. Since it was an Atlanta problem, Delta was naturally hit hardest. (If you know a Delta employee in Atlanta, they need a hug.) But hidden beneath those bitter headlines this week is a bittersweet milestone. Today, Delta’s last scheduled 747 flight is heading to De...

Thinking of Coming Down Under? New Flight Routes You Should Consider

I won’t deny that the journey to Australia is long. With the distance between us and our nearest neighbour, New Zealand, totalling 3 hours, Asia 6 hours and the rest of the world beyond; I’m often awed that people travel so far to see our big-little island-continent. With big distances often come big costs, but could flying to Australia become more affordable soon? In recent months, and continuing well through next year, airlines are flocking to set up new routes to Australia or add extra flight...

The American/China Southern and Delta/Korean Deals Carve Up the Future in Asia

Today I want to talk about a very important topic. Asia. Oh, shoot. In the heat of the moment I picked the wrong image. Of course, I’m really writing today about air service between the US and the continent of Asia. Last week there were a couple of big developments. American bought a small chunk of China Southern that should finally give it a foothold in China. And Delta and Korean Air finally kissed and made up, announcing plans for a joint venture. This is going to result in some big c...

Airlines Ready for a Million Additional Mexico Visitors

We've talked on here a few times about all the new flights the airlines have opened up to Latin America. Mexico has gotten more of those than the rest of Latin America added together, however, and that's continuing in 2017. The Mexican tourism board announced recently that one million new airline seats will be added to capacity this year. Forget the wall, forget the trade tariffs bluster: on the tourism front more Americans are heading to Mexico than ever before. Besides the flood of new emigr...

The Delta and Korean Air Relationship Begins to Thaw

It seems strange to be talking about any kind of thawing of relations in Korea considering what North Korea has been up to lately, but of course, this is a different kind of thawing. After years of strained relations, it sounds like Delta and Korean Air are on a path to reconciliation. And the first big public step was taken last week when the airlines jointly announced increased codesharing and new service. The basics of the announcement are as follows: Delta will begin flying nonstop from ...
