Miles and Points On Sale — May 13 2020

Designer of United Airlines “Tulip” Logo Would Have Been 100 Years Old Today, May 8, 2020

Saul Bass would have been 100 years old today — he passed away slightly greater than 24 years ago — but one of his most famous works is no longer in use.

If United Airlines is your preferred airline of choice, you might have lamented the decision to retire what is popularly known as the “tulip” logo in favor of the abstract globe logo used for years by Continental Airlines when it was merged with United Airlines.

The “tulip” logo — a red, white and blue abstract of the letter U — survived three branding changes for 38 years since it was first introduced in 1974, replacing the “vertical spike” logo which preceded it. The “tulip” — originally designed by Bass — was updated in 2004 by…

Update: Passengers Must Wear Face Coverings or Masks With These Airlines Based in the United States

Steve Cohen — who is a Democratic member of the House of Representatives of the United States serving the ninth district of Tennessee and a senior member of the Aviation Subcommittee of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure — is one of the lawmakers who wrote a letter urging that passengers should be required to use face masks while aboard airplanes to mitigate the spread of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus in air travel to key people who head four departments of the federal government of the United States…

…but action as a result of that letter may not be necessary, as several airlines which are based in the United States have already enacted their own policies of requiring passengers to wear face coverings or masks that cover their mouths and noses while aboard their airplanes.
