At the expense of angering theme-park goers, Walt Disney‘s (NYSE: DIS) move to increase some of its Disney World ticket prices on Tuesday is the right call. The world’s largest theme-park operator has now boosted admission rates for 31 consecutive years.

In the days since the horrific Ethiopian Airlines crash, I have received a lot of email from pilots, aircraft engineers, and others with experience in aviation. These have been in response to three previous posts: first here, then here, then most recently here (with quotes from pilots’ observations about the Boeing 737 Max via NASA’s Aviation Safety Reporting System).

While I sift through the other messages, let me start with one from a highly experienced pilot and flight instructor. His name is Wally Magathan, and he has worked as an airline pilot, an Air Force pilot and C-5 Galaxy flight instructor, and an instructor in airline L-1011 flight-simulators. I know him through COPA, the organization of pilots and owners of Cirrus’s small single-engine airplanes.

A group of ladies from sacramento were kicked off their flight to Mexico for a bride’s bachelorette party. An employee for American Airlines said the bride’s mother appeared to be drunk.

Amber Granlund, a bridesmaid who spoke with Fox 40, said it was a misunderstanding, and that the bride’s mom was just nervous about traveling.

“She’s in her 50s, almost 60s,” Granlund said. “There could have been something else going on.” 

Granlund said that the mother of bride had consumed one or two drinks before boarding but was definitely not intoxicated. “It wasn’t drunken behavior,” she said.

Spain

La Concha, San Sebastián

It’s the Chrysler Building of beaches: instantly recognisable but nevertheless thrilling and heart-lifting. La Concha is the most beautiful urban beach in Spain: a scallop of cream sand and sparkling sapphire waters with forested headlands, an island – Santa Clara – and a peppering of boats. The belle-époque seafront dates back to days of long summer residencies, when children ate separately and hotels were plushly carpeted; but today’s city is vibrant and cool. La Concha is flanked by two smaller beaches: Ondarreta is almost a continuation to the west (ending in Eduardo Chillada’s Wind Comb sculpture); Zurriola, beyond the Kursaal Palace in Gros, is popular with surfers.

Stay La Pensión del Mar (doubles from €45 room-only) also in Gros, is friendly and affordable. For a few euros more, Sansebay (doubles from €70 room only) offers contemporary chic and La Concha views.

A 27-year-old man was arrested at Oakland International Airport on Sunday morning after he allegedly brandished a small knife he said he intended to use to harm a police officer, a spokesman for the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office said.

The man, whose name is being withheld pending formal charges, can be seen on surveillance video released by the Sheriff’s Department apparently looking into a parked patrol car.

Sgt. Ray Kelly said Sunday that “luckily our deputies were not in the car. They were out on foot patrol.”
