American Airlines says it will purchase a minority stake in China Southern Airlines, a deal that will give the carrier greater access to the world's two largest travel markets. American Airlines, the world's largest by scheduled passengers carried, will buy $200 million in China Southern stock, the largest airline in China. The deal gives American a 2.68 percent stake in China Southern and gives the two carriers the green light to move forward with a strategic cooperation. The agreement, subject to regulatory approvals, is the second such deal between major airlines in the United States and China. Delta Airlines bought 3.55 percent of China Eastern Airlines for $450 million in 2015. Code sharing, which allows two airlines to more efficiently schedule passengers on each other's flights, will begin later this year. This will give American Airlines access to more than 70 Chinese destinations while China Southern will get a share of more than 80 destinations and North and South America.

K., where it serves London’s Heathrow hub as well as Manchester and Birmingham in England and Edinburgh in Scotland. Al Baker said his company accepts that a ban on passengers carrying large electronic devices aboard U.S.-bound flights from a clutch of Mideast and African nations including Qatar is a “security decision,” adding that it’s too early to say if the measures will hurt business. “I dont think it is targeted at Gulf airlines,” he said. “It is a decision made by the United States that we as an operator have to follow. We have to comply and make sure that we dont cause any inconvenience to our passengers.” Qatar Air customers bound for the U.S. are required to surrender their laptops and other equipment when passing through security screening, unlike those at Dubai-based Emirates, who can hang on to them until the gate. Qatar Air doesnt plan to hand out loaner devices in the cabin, something Emirates President Tim Clark has said may be an option.

Two ten-year-old girls were banned from a United flight for wearing leggings. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you why. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/go “United Airlines on Sunday defended a gate agent’s decision to bar two young girls from a flight because they were wearing leggings, a decision that drew a wave of high-profile criticism and customer threats to end business with the airline. The incident took place at Denver international airport and was reported by Shannon Watts, the founder of the gun safety group Moms Demand Action, on Twitter. Watts said she saw two girls stopped from boarding a flight to Minneapolis by a gate agent. “She’s forcing them to change or put dresses on over leggings or they can’t board,” Watts wrote. “Since when does United police women’s clothing?” According to Watts, the gate agent then said “she doesnt make the rules, just follows them”.

United Airlines' recent leggings ban has done much more than anger the online world it's sparked an important discussion about the ongoing struggle women face dress in regards to unfair dress codes. Though the great "should leggings be considered pants?" debate has been around for years, the controversy surrounding women's dress codes was furiously reignited after Shannon Watts tweeted about two girls being banned from boarding a flight until they changed out of the leggings. SEE ALSO: United Airlines: 'Your leggings are welcome.' Delta: 'Duh' Following the severe backlash , Jonathan Guerin, a spokesperson at United Airlines, assured Mashable that the leggings restriction solely applies to a select group of people: employees and their "pass riders," friends or relatives of United employees who receive free or heavily discounted travel. All other passengers are invited to wear their leggings onboard United flights. Read more... More about Fashion , Dress Code , Women , Travel , and Airlines

Turkish and Gulf airlines are touting free WiFi and better in-flight connectivity for smartphones as they scramble to mitigate the impact of a ban on laptops in plane cabins bound for the United States. The restrictions could deal a blow to fast-growing Gulf airlines, which depend on business-class flyers stopping over in Dubai or Doha for far-flung destinations, and to Turkish Airlines with its high volume of transit passengers. A Turkish Airlines official said it was working on rolling out a system to allow passengers to use 3G data roaming on mobile phones to connect to the internet in-flight, and planned to make WiFi freely available on some aircraft from next month. "We've sped up infrastructure work after the latest developments. ... If the work is complete, we're planning on switching to free WiFi services in our Boeing 777 and Airbus 330 aircraft in April," the official told Reuters.

On Monday, United Airlines defended an employee's decision to bar two girls from boarding a flight from Denver to Minneapolis on Sunday morning because their leggings violated the airline's dress code for pass travelers, adding another incident to the surprising history of what seems to be the most controversial leg-covering of the moment. But, even though it may seem that such news is a decidedly recent phenomenon, in fact leggings have been around for centuries. Before they became a form of activewear, they were used for practical purposes. For obvious reasons, the concept of pants as opposed to skirts, kilts or other clothing that doesn't protect the legs individually is closely linked to the development of societies that used horses to get around, as described by T.C.F. Hopkins in Empires , Wars, and Battles : The Middle East from Antiquity to the Rise of the New World : From Asia to Europe, the riders of horses are also the wearers of trousers.
