A look at the sky news of the week:
- Seems like the world’s talking (read: overreacting) to the “Brexit” vote (people were even freaking out about whether or not Game of Thrones would be affected). So I’ll join in. Will the result impact European travel? And if so how?
- Chicago’s leaders have regulated Airbnb hosts. In short, Airbnb hosts would be taxed, and several regulations will be implemented. Actor, Ashton Kutcher, isn’t happy about the plan. To be clear, he owns a pretty big stake in Airbnb. He posted his feelings on his Facebook page, but (from what I can tell) has since deleted that post. However, you can read what he wrote here. To add, it seems the city has created a “burglar’s paradise” with an online registry of home-sharing listing for the new tax plan.
- A man boarded a Delta flight home only to discover he was the only passenger on the plane!
- Uber will no longer have surge pricing. Which means you won’t know whether you’re paying 2x, 3x, or 4x. You’ll just see what the trip will cost you when booking the Uber ride. Or, as they’re calling it: upfront fares.
