Here are some of the best travel news and notes from around the Internet:

  • Is this the end of Norwegian Air? The carrier has had a rough year, battling issues with the Rolls Royce engines on its 787 aircraft and rising fuel costs. It has been in question whether they would survive the until the New Year, but it looks like they will. Things are still touch and go, however. It will be a major blow to the cost of transatlantic fares should they fold.
  • Nick Reyes over at Frequent Miler provides a great rebuttal to Gary Leff’s post on why people are crazy to ditch Marriott for Hilton. Given the IT issues that have plagued the company since the SPG program merger, I can understand why people are leaving. And also why Hilton is appealing. I share most of his sentiments.
  • Air Marshals will now sit in the back of the plane. It boggles my mind that they generally didn’t before. Honestly, the whole program needs to be scrapped.
  • Although Qantas has begun their Perth-London service, for the first time flying between Australia and England nonstop, they have their real sights set on nonstop service between both London and New York and the major Australian cities of Sydney and Melbourne.
