By DAVID KOENIG, AP Airlines Editor

DALLAS (AP) — The prospect of a Spirit Airlines takeover threatens to upend the industry’s low-fare segment, just as a series of major airline mergers have narrowed choices for travelers.

Spirit is the largest low-cost airline in the United States, but its days as a standalone company seem numbered. The big question is whether it’s being sold to another discounter Frontier Airlines or to JetBlue, which operates more like the big four that dominate the US airline industry.

The result could determine how many choices travelers have for the lowest fares. This is particularly important for leisure customers, Spirit’s target group.

Spirit shareholders are due to vote on Thursday on whether to approve a stock and cash offer from Frontier that is currently worth about $22 per share, or $2.4 billion, and give Spirit shareholders 48.5 % of the combined airline. Spirit’s board continued to support the deal in the face of a hostile bid from JetBlue worth $33.50 per share, or $3.6 billion.

JetBlue claims that its all-cash offer is financially superior. Frontier argues its proposal will be better for Spirit shareholders in the long run, assuming airline stocks return to pre-pandemic levels.

The two covet Spirit because of its relatively young fleet of more than 170 planes and some 3,000 pilots – even more valuable during a pilot shortage that could last most of this decade.

Antitrust regulators are sure to scrutinize either transaction carefully. Both Frontier and JetBlue say consumers will benefit if they win the Spirit contest. A Frontier-Spirit combination would operate around 5% of the nation’s flights, and JetBlue plus Spirit would operate more than 7%, based on July schedules, making either a stronger competitor to American, United , Delta and Southwest.

People who follow the industry closely are split on which offering would help consumers the most. Those who prefer a Frontier-Spirit deal point out that both are “ultra low-cost carriers” that charge very low fares – although they add many fees. They say JetBlue has become too much like the big airlines.

“You either end up with another big, high-cost regular-fare airline (with JetBlue) or a truly national ultra-low-cost carrier that’s twice the size of anything out there today,” says Robert Mann, a longtime airline executive and consultant. Consumers, he said, “should seek out the pursuit of a true austere, low-cost environment with the Spirit-Frontier combination.”

Scott Keyes, the founder of travel site Scott’s Cheap Flights, likes neither, “but I like the JetBlue option even less.”

Keyes said removing a competitor always tends to increase fares, but the impact won’t be as severe if the buyer is another low-cost airline like Frontier.

“Even if you never fly with Spirit or Frontier, you still owe them a debt of gratitude for making your Delta or American flight cheaper than it otherwise would be,” he said.

Spooked by the growth of low-cost airlines, the biggest carriers have started selling “Basic Economy” fares in recent years, although they limit the number of cheap seats on each flight.

JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes contradicts a decade-old study by MIT researchers that found that JetBlue flying a particular route did more to reduce prices than low-cost airline service, which represents a small part of the market. He used to call it “the JetBlue effect”.

Michael Linenberg, an airline analyst for Deutsche Bank, said if JetBlue succeeds in buying Spirit, some of the cheaper fares could go away, but a larger JetBlue could replace them with seats that appeal to other types of passengers. travellers. He pointed to JetBlue’s “Mint” business class service, which has been so successful on transcontinental flights that it has forced bigger rivals to cut prices for their premium seats.

“It’s not just about meeting the needs of people who want to pay $29 or $59. There are passenger segments JetBlue will serve that Frontier and Spirit do not,” Linenberg said. “There’s going to be plenty of seats there, and it’s not like JetBlue is going to stop offering low fares.”

Savanthi Syth, airline analyst for Raymond James & Associates, said any loss of budget seats after a JetBlue-Spirit deal will be temporary as other budget carriers, including Frontier, expand.

“Frontier has the backlog (of new planes) to step in and pick up what Spirit leaves behind,” she said.

It’s even harder to predict whether a Spirit sale will make a big difference in customer service.

Spirit had the highest rate of consumer complaints to the government in the Department for Transport’s latest figures, covering April, and finished in the bottom five of the past seven years.

Neither of the two potential buyers seems likely to improve Spirit’s poor balance sheet. Frontier had the worst complaint rate the other two years, and JetBlue’s rate last year was higher than everyone but Spirit and Frontier.

Several mergers between 2008 and 2013 — Delta bought Northwest, United absorbed Continental, Southwest bought rival low-cost carrier AirTran, and American and US Airways combined — left four airlines to control 80% of the U.S. market and ushered in several years air fares. increases faster than inflation. The pace of consolidation then slowed, with only one major deal being the acquisition of Virgin America by Alaska Airlines in 2016.

Airline industry officials believe antitrust regulators would block American, United, Delta or Southwest from recruiting rivals, but that doesn’t rule out further consolidation. Some analysts say a merger of JetBlue on the east coast and Alaska on the west would make sense. Small players Allegiant Air, Sun Country and startups Avelo and Breeze could become takeover targets at some point.

“In the ultra-low-cost space, we probably have too many players. I think we’ll see consolidation,” said Deutsche Bank analyst Linenberg. “Do we need eight, nine or 10 airlines? flying from New York to Fort Lauderdale?”

Delhi airport footfall returns to pre-Covid level at 5.23m in May, says AAI | Latest Delhi News Tue, 28 Jun 2022 18:09:54 +0000

Passenger traffic has increased significantly at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA), with the airport handling 5.23 million passengers in May, according to data from the Airports Authority of India (AAI). Attendance is near that of May 2019, when the airport handled 5.28 million passengers, before Covid-19 affected flight operations worldwide.

Data shows that there has been a steady increase in monthly passenger footfall and flight operations, after pandemic restrictions eased significantly in October 2021. Since then, the airport has seen a gradual increase in the number of flights and passenger numbers. Ridership increased to 3.7 million passengers in February 2022 and around 5.07 million in March, before dropping slightly to 4.92 million passengers in April, according to IAA data. Ridership of 5.23 million passengers in May is the highest on record, IAA officials said.

By comparison, in 2019, Delhi airport handled 5.37 million passengers in February, 5.48 million in March, 4.96 million in April and 5.28 million in May, the IAA said.

In terms of total aircraft movements, both domestic and international, there has been an increase of around 37% since February – from 26,176 to 36,072 in May. This is actually slightly higher than the 36,055 movements recorded by the airport in May 2019.

“Following the resumption of flight operations at all three terminals and a gradual resumption of the global Covid-19 lockdown, flight movements and passenger footfall have shown a steady increase and we are now close to pre-Covid levels,” said an airport official, on condition of anonymity.

Delhi airport handled 4.18 million domestic passengers in May, while the number of international passengers stood at 1.05 million passengers. In February, the airport handled 3.06 million domestic passengers and 0.72 million international passengers.

Covid-19 protocols are still in place at the airport and include functional Covid testing facilities, temperature screening, disinfection and social distancing. Passengers are still required to wear masks on board the aircraft.

Commercial operations for domestic and international flights have been suspended from March 24, 2020, in an effort to contain the spread of Covid-19. However, Terminal 3 was the first to reopen, on May 25, 2020, with Terminal 2 opening in a calibrated manner from July 22, 2021. Terminal 1 was the last to reopen, with flights resuming from there from from October 31, 2021.

In February 2022, the newly refurbished Terminal-1 was made operational for the public, with domestic passengers now exiting from the new arrivals section of T-1, instead of the old T-1(C) building.

I’m a travel expert – here’s how to cut your boarding time at airports Mon, 27 Jun 2022 10:09:57 +0000

Queuing at airports is one of the few downsides to going on vacation.

Travel should be about relaxation, but getting on the plane can often be a slow and stressful process, especially right now with the ongoing chaos of travel.


Queuing next to business class passengers can speed up the boarding processCredit: Getty

However, a travel expert has revealed a handy hint that could help passengers speed up their boarding and reduce the time they spend waiting in line.

Former flight attendant and consumer expert Jane Hawkes told vacationers how certain tactical queues could get them on the plane and into their seat faster.

She told The Express that queuing next to business class passengers could lead to a faster boarding time.

I'm a flight attendant and we'll give you bad service for a common mistake
I'm a travel expert and these vacation myths are NOT true

She said: “Go for the nearest business class check-in counter as they are likely to have a shorter business class queue.

“There’s a chance that if that queue empties faster, they’ll wave you over because they want to speed up that check-in process.

“They’re not there just to separate passengers.”

Hawkes also revealed how to get through security barriers faster, being properly prepared to pass through monitors.

His recommendation is to remove anything that will trigger the detectors as soon as possible to avoid delays.

She also said using the airport’s clear plastic bags for liquids was a good idea, to ensure they were up to the expected standard.

Hawkes isn’t the only flight attendant who has already provided information on how to speed up passenger boarding.

Earlier this year, Glenn Reuben, a flight attendant for more than 30 years, revealed why passengers should wait to fly before asking cabin crew for things.

Glenn shared his frustration on question and answer site Quora.

He wrote: “During boarding, if you need a sip of water ‘for a pill’ or because you are ‘so thirsty’, please use the water fountains in the boarding area.

“During boarding, the company attacks the crew and the agents who are very harsh on departure times.

“During the boarding process, we check catering supplies, inventory special meals and prepare for service.

“We find passenger storage spaces and coordinate passenger seating.

“Ten minutes before departure, all luggage must be stowed and passengers seated so that the door can be closed.

“Bottom line – we don’t find it cute, when you stop us from doing what we do to open the buckets on the water and the cups for a single glass of water.”

If anyone wants a drink on a plane, this flight attendant has revealed how to get one for free.

Meanwhile, another cabin crew member revealed exactly how much personal information they knew about each of their passengers.

10 Best Physical Comedy Bits, According To Reddit Mon, 27 Jun 2022 03:00:00 +0000

In a recent interview on The Late Show with Stephen ColbertBryan Cranston recalled guest directing Officethe infamous “Work Bus” episode, detailing the complications the cast and crew faced. He credited Office Jenna Fischer for alerting him to the smell of exhaust fumes inside the bus and for saving “everyone’s life”.

Bryan Cranston appeared on Stephen Colbert to promote his new movie Jerry and Marge go big which, interestingly, also features Office former – Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute). Cranston’s interview spotlighted the workspace mockumentary that meticulously balances grimace with physical comedy to keep audiences laughing. Generally, Office balances the two forms of comedy, but Reddit agrees that these physical gags are impressive.


Stanley’s dribble

Stanley Hudson dribbles a basketball in The Office

Reddit user shoulda_been_gone says ‘Stanley dribbling a basketball’ is the funniest physical gag on Office. In Season 1’s “Basketball,” Michael pits his staff against warehouse workers in a friendly game. He chooses players based on who he likes the most and his prejudices. Jim Halpert, Ryan Howard and Stanley Hudson make the team, while Kevin Malone, who shoots perfect baskets, is dropped.

RELATED: 9 Episodes to Introduce Potential Viewers to The Office

Michael has great faith in Stanley, more than anyone, but in reality, he’s terrible at the game. Stanley’s weak posture, dribbling and ball handling skills are downright comical. He kicks the ball with his whole palm and his lack of control and agility makes him the weakest player on the team.

fire drill

Creed Bratton Phyllis Vance and Oscar Martinez trying to escape the Dunder Mifflin Building in The Office

Physical comedy is one of the classic moments of Office‘s “Stress Relief.” In the episode, Dwight gets a little too realistic while conducting a fire safety drill at the office. He forces all the doors shut and deactivates the phones before using a cigarette to set a trash can on fire.

Reddit user Saint_Hera said “The Whole Who Runs During Dwight’s Fire Drill” is the best physical comedy on Office. It’s an easy favorite because Dwight’s bizarre teaching technique leads to some hilarious downfalls. The physical comedy is made of unforgettable moments like Michael throwing a printer out the window, Oscar trying to escape through the ceiling, Angela throwing her office cat Bandit into the ceiling, and Kevin raiding the vending machine.

Kevin’s Chili Spill

Kevin drops his famous chili in Dunder Mifflin

For Reddit user RoweMyBoat, the “Casual Friday” cold open featuring “Kevin dropping his Kevin’s Famous Chili” is the series’ best physical gag. As seen, Kevin carries a gigantic jar full of homemade chili peppers to the office only to accidentally drop it near the reception area.

The real comedy begins when Kevin desperately tries to get as much of the chili pepper out of the pot as he can. The physical humor of the scene is a combination of Kevin’s fetching actions, expressions, and body language. As he uses documents to scoop chili off the floor, he scores a memorable silent comedy scene and one of the funniest chill openings in Office.

Michael and the stewardess

Michael Scott screams in pain as the flight attendant stands next to him with a service cart in The Office

Redditor falloutbi05 mentions a fun part of “Business Trip” in which David Wallace sends Michael on a sales call in Winnipeg in mid-November. They write, “One of my favorite little moments that always brings me to tears is the flight attendant hitting Michael in the knee with the trolley and his reaction.”

RELATED: The 10 Funniest Michael Scott Humblebrags In The Office

Michael looks forward to his in-flight experience and orders a meal in business class. He angers the flight attendant with his attention-seeking behavior like asking for a menu, and she, in turn, takes advantage of his blindfold and hits him in the knee with her airline food cart. The comedy operates on the flight attendant’s intentional clumsiness and passive-aggressive behavior. To top it off, the “God!” of Michael comes at the right time. the scream makes the whole gag funnier.

Meredith and the Bat

Dwight Schrute captures the bat on Meredith's head in The Office

Redditor itschristmas_letsgo writes, “…Meredith having a bat stuck on her head…” is the show’s best bit of physical comedy. This over-the-top slapstick comedy is part of Season 3’s “Business School” and begins when Dwight lifts the ceiling and accidentally drops a bat into the office.

As people rush for cover, Dwight, a total non-professional, insists on removing the bat himself. He grabs it off Meredith’s head using a trash bag. Although Dwight does most of the work in the scene, it’s Kate Flannery’s Meredith who steals the show. She conveys her physical discomfort through her actions and body language to connect with viewers.

Michel’s injury

Michael Scott burns his foot on a girl and shows it to the film crew in The Office

One of the funniest episodes of Office, “The Injury” features the uncomfortable and jarring moment when Michael tells the camera crew about his injury. It’s been known that most nights he puts slices of bacon on his grill, plugs it in the next morning, and finally wakes up to the smell of sizzling bacon. As hilarious as it sounds, it gets funnier when Michael reveals his burned foot to the film crew without the slightest ounce of embarrassment.

According to Reddit user Right-Championship30 “Michael burns his foot” like a piece of bacon is. Officeis the best physical gag. The Redditor’s choice is a classic because the shot of Michael’s foot is in perfect harmony with his amusing narration of what went wrong. He explains perfectly having burned his foot and by showing his foot, leaves no detail to the imagination.

Dwight’s Martial Arts Demonstration

Phyllis and Dwight do martial arts in The Office

Reddit user Stevewallen says The offices The best physical gag is “Dwight’s” year in the martial arts display that’s featured in “Murder.” It evolves from simply demonstrating karate to Dwight performing various martial arts moves on himself.

RELATED: 9 Unpopular Opinions About The Office’s Dwight Schrute, According To Reddit

It’s a memorable track because Dwight, at Jim’s insistence, hits and blocks his own attacks. The whole scene turns into a chaotic comedy and ends with him punching himself in the groin.

Dwight is hiding in a box

Pam Beesly talks on the phone as Dwight hides in a box in The Office warehouse

Redditor wacksonjagstaff’s favorite physical gag is also one of the funniest pranks Jim and Pam have pulled on Dwight and it’s in “The Alliance”. The episode revolves around Jim leading Dwight, leading him to believe that they have joined forces against other members following the downsizing rumors. The Redditor describes the fun part perfectly, saying, “…when Dwight hides in the box spying on Pam’s phone call. The way he cuts the eye holes and then gets so excited he knocks the box.”

The physical comedy montage is made of Dwight punching holes in a box and ending up propelling himself and toppling over while trying to overhear Pam’s conversation. Pam can barely hold back her laughter at the end, and Dwight deserves a ten out of ten for this over the top stunt.

Kevin’s Fall

Kevin and Oscar dance at Jim and Pam's wedding in The Office

The memorable two-part “Niagara” features Jim and Pam’s wedding and, as expected, is made up of memorable outtakes and wedding shenanigans. The climax of the episode is when Dwight plays Chris Brown’s Still on an iPod speaker in a parody of the 2009 YouTube video sensation JK Wedding Entrance Dance.

In the middle of the JK wedding entrance dance sequence is the unforgettable Kevin “falling into the candle pillar” which Reddit user RL0290 says is the best. He partners up with Oscar, and while most of their dancing goes well, he adds his own twist by slipping and stumbling. Kevin’s special Kleenex shoes, counted among the classic moments of Office“Niagara,” led to his memorable slapstick gag.

Pam at the Dundies

Pam Beesly falls from her chair at the Dundies in The Office

According to Redditor CharlieNixon1965, “Pam gets drunk at The Dundies!” is the best physical gag of Office. The scene takes place right at the end of the annual Employee Night, aka The Dundies, Awards Ceremony held at Chili’s.

Pam’s downfall is the perfect conclusion to “The Dundies,” and it lets the fun side of her personality shine through. She’s the most energetic person in the room, thanks to the chile margaritas. Overall, her cheerful personality is an entertaining break from her more serious office demeanor.

Center Daily Times, file

It’s that time of year when local farmers’ markets are in full swing and it’s an opportunity to participate in the local Center County food system. You can visit a local farmers market or farm stalls and browse the wide variety of local produce and other goodies available from the vendors. Many of these markets follow the flow of produce from early spring produce to the great abundance and variety of summer produce to fall produce and some even move indoors for winter markets .

Farmers’ markets can be a great time to socialize with local growers and learn about their operations and the growing systems they use on their farms, whether certified organic, conventional or hybrid. I wanted to give a quick overview of some of the local farmers markets found in Center County.

The first is the Downtown State College Street Market, which is open Friday 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. May through November at Locust Lane between College and Beaver Avenues.

Creek Cafe. You can buy but no drink allowed on site, however.

Then we venture a little further down the Millheim Farmer’s Market which is open 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays from early May through late October and is located at the American Legion Lodge, 112 Legion Lane in Spring Mills. They have about a dozen vendors offering apples and apple products, maple syrup, honey, lamb, wool items, beef, cheese, pork, chicken, flowers, garlic, ginger, sauces and ketchup, plus tons of fresh vegetables.
