Five FT Finds

Apologies for missing a couple of weeks of Five FT Finds (thanks to dodgy internet in some far-flung places I’ve been travelling). So this week I bring a special bumper edition.

An FTer birthday this week – wish stut a happy birthday on 23rd April.

Also birthday greetings to blondebomber today (20th April), and belated greetings to Kennewick Guy on Friday the 13th April.

Jenbel and chrissxb have set up a fantastic consolidated do thread. So I am looking for 1 more new find to showcase each week. Any suggestions please by PM (click here)?

New newsSouthwest is looking at adding inflight wi-fi.

Something from the talking heads, err Talk Board – Talk Board voted against the motion to not include OMNI posts in post count and, in case you missed it, the Swiss airline forum was moved to be a subforum of Miles & More, that forum being renamed from Lufthansa. Voting is underway on a new travel photography forum.

There are also current discussions on the Talk Board forum on a new BAA Worldpoints forum, how to find out who is on Talk Board, whether there should be a sticky or announcement when Talk Board is voting on motions, a request to review the recent changes to the Mileage Run forum, FT “status”, and finally (phew) whether OMNI should be changed.

Something random – United FTers are excited that Las Vegas now has a small number of mainline UA flights as alternatives to Ted. LapLap is no longer scared of beetroot.
