The FAA released its proposed ‘Flexible’ Rule On Small UAS earlier this week. While satisfying several concerns, large commercial entities such as Amazon.com are not happy.

A third-party vendor for United Airlines made a mistake in calculating the Pound-to-Danish Kroner exchange rate, resulting in trips across the pond being offered for just £52 ($80). Thousands of people took advantage of the mistake by purchasing their trips in kroners.

An Alaska Airlines flight enroute to Portland, OR returned to Los Angeles International after a woman was stung by a scorpion. Ouch. That Stings!
