William — Airline mechanics routinely slow down and create maintenance work when they are engaged in contract negotiations. It is a practice almost as old as the industry. It’s called “leverage.” In response, airlines routinely seek (and win) preliminary injunctions against such illegal conduct. The reason this game exists is because the industry is burdened by an antiquated law, the Railway Labor Act, that for political reasons is impossible to change. Allowing very highly paid individuals to belong to unions is a very bad idea (for both company and employee) which is why such unions don’t exist outside of the Railway Labor Act. Indeed, if there were a truly free market for airline service, USA airlines with labor unions would almost certainly all go out of business. But, as a society, we tolerate this silliness. In the scheme of things, the inefficiency it creates is modest.

I was wondering why my PPBDC on my Google Pay account was displaying as unavailable every time I wanted to send money to myself since almost two weeks ago. Seems like PP and Google killed that loophole. Too bad, nevertheless I did end up using the PPBDC to send money to myself via google pay as direct deposits to meet the DD requirements for the Wells Fargo $400 bonus while netting the PP cashback. Funny coincidence that they decided to kill the loophole just as I met the bonus requirements.

With Amex killing my serve and bluebird and on top of that PayPal no longer allowing credit backup on their PPBDC. I have no use for the PPBDC other than to place my two PPBDCs in the sock drawer until I discover another possible loophole in the future.

The Travel Codex blog about US citizens being able to use the e-Passports lines in England is great timing for me, and something I wouldn’t have known about if not for this site.

I really like that you share / link other blogger’s posts when the information is pertinent. DoC is a consolidator of great information.

Thanks Will!
