FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The fuel needle is moving closer to “empty” at some U.S. airports.

American Airlines says it’s running into fuel shortages at some smaller and mid-size airports, and in some cases the airline will add refueling stops or fly fuel into locations where the supply is tight.

The airline said that the shortages showed up first in the West, where they could affect efforts to fight wildfires. They are now being reported in other parts of the country and will last through mid-August, according to a company memo to pilots on Monday. It asked pilots to conserve fuel by, for example, leaving one engine off while taxiing.

American said fuel supplies are being squeezed at “several” airports, which it didn’t name, mostly because of a shortage of tanker trucks or drivers.

WASHINGTON, July 26 (Reuters) – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and State Department on Monday both warned against travel to Spain, Portugal, Cyprus and Kyrgyzstan because of a rising number of COVID-19 cases in those countries.

The CDC raised its travel advisory to “Level Four: Very High” for those countries telling Americans they should avoid travel there, while the State Department issued “Do Not Travel” advisories.

Spain reopened its borders to U.S. tourists in June and has been a popular destination for Americans since then.

The CDC on Monday also raised its rating to “Level Four” for Cuba, while the State Department already had Cuba at the highest “Do Not Travel” rating

Seoul asked Pakistan and China to help find a South Korean climber who’s gone missing in the Himalayas… after scaling all 14 Himalayan peaks. On Monday, Kim Hong-bin reached Broad Peak in the Karakoram mountain range in Pakistan. The foreign ministry asked the two countries to send rescue teams. Pakistan is expected to deploy an army helicopter to search the area where the mountaineer’s signal was lost. The ministry will also dispatch local South Korean diplomats to the site. Kim is the first disabled climber to conquer the Himalayas’ 14 highest peaks. He lost all fingers 20 years ago while climbing.

(CNN) — For once, it’s an opportunity to sleep with the fishes that doesn’t mean you end up like a character in a mob movie.
The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island has opened the world’s first-ever underwater hotel residence.
More than just a room or a suite (this is the Maldives, after all, so luxury is the name of the game), the two-story villa is set more than 16 feet below the Indian Ocean. Its name is “Muraka,” which means “coral” in the Maldives’ local language Dhivehi.
