    Air Travel during the New Normal

    Thai Airways apparently intends to file for bankruptcy protection which would imply a restructuring of the flag carrier. Guess that process won't be "smooth as silk"... I don't know if bankruptcy protection in Thailand can be compared to Chapter 11 of Title 11 of the US Code for example.

    BTS Skytrain Bangkok

    What's the point in social distancing on the platform while queueing, but once inside the train you're sardined with 200 other people...

    Embedded Facebook videos

    Instead of embedding a Facebook video manually, you can also let the forum software do the whole job. You just have to copy the video link address and paste it into the standard (WYSIWYG) editor here. To find the video address you can right click on the video, click on "display video URL", copy the video URL (video address) and paste it here. Hit enter and the forum software should do its magic... Depending on your browser, app, device and operating system this option to find the video URL may or may not work. If it doesn't work, you can try the following: Go to the desktop version of FB (either by using a PC or by removing the "m" in front of the website address in your mobile browser) and click on the three dots on the upper right hand corner of the post. This should open a menu with the option to copy the link. Do this and paste the link here in the forum editor, hit enter, and wait a second or two before the video shows up. Video embedding works best with high-speed internet connections, such as a good WIFI or at least 4G / LTE. If you are using slow network connections and / or older hardware with little RAM, these posts with embedded media might take a while to load... Example for automatically embedding a Facebook video: The latest CIB Facebook post is this video posted yesterday. On a PC you click on the post, click on the three dots and copy link. Paste this link into the editor here. The link should look like this: https://www.facebook.com/401617183283119/videos/698811364217069/ After the domain name, there's the FB account number, then the word "videos", and finally the video ID. If your link looks a lot different than the one above, then there's something wrong.. Perhaps you copied the web address / URL where the video was posted to instead of the specific address of the video... Again: If you paste this video link here and hit enter / return, the forum software will (should) automatically embed the video... The same principle (i.e., copying the media URL (video URL, audio URL, image URL/ address) can be applied to embed media from other social media sites, such as Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, LinkedIn, Giphy, Tenor, imgurl, Snapchat, Pinterest, twitch, Soundcloud, DeviantArt, Flickr, YouTube, Vimeo, Tumblr, and so on. I think it even works with VK and Whatsapp. I'm not so sure about Chinese sites such as Youku. Good luck! Automatically embedded: Manually embedded:
  5. What device, site version, and browser type are you using? Desktop, mobile, iPad, Tapatalk...? Does this video appear correctly in the container here: Or perhaps this one: . The first one is using the post plug-in, the second one the video plug-in code generator. I'm only using the standard Facebook plug-ins: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins For pure video plug-ins this one: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/embedded-video-player/ For post plug-ins this one: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/embedded-posts/

    Air Travel during the New Normal

    Delta has recently introduced a new back-to-front boarding process. Passengers are asked to stay seated in the waiting area until their row is announced. That's reality already. Next step I think could be to let window seat passengers take their seats before middle and aisle seat ticket holders. https://thepointsguy.com/news/delta-air-lines-boarding-social-distancing Emirates screens passengers before boarding an aircraft for the corona virus whereby blood is drawn from a finger prick and the results are processed in just 10 minutes. https://www.cntraveler.com/story/emirates-is-giving-rapid-coronavirus-tests-to-passengers-before-boarding/

    Air Travel during the New Normal

    Emirates' new policy according to the pointsguy website: "The carrier will not allow passengers to board with cabin baggage in an effort to reduce risk of spreading the virus by touch. ... all passengers and crew wear masks and gloves throughout their journey — from check-in until they disembark. All cabin crew, boarding agents and ground staff who come in direct contact with passengers will be outfitted in personal protective equipment, which includes a disposable down over their uniforms and a safety visor — plus a mask and gloves. ... After each journey, the airline said that aircraft will go through enhanced cleaning and disinfection processes in Dubai. ... On board, the airline said that it’s pre-allocating seats so there are vacant seats between individual passengers or family groups in an effort to social distance. Meal services have also been adjusted, as cabin crew will distribute bento box-style meals to passengers in order to minimise contact. Magazines and other print materials have been removed from seatback pockets in order to reduce spread by touch." https://thepointsguy.co.uk/news/emirates-coronavirus-ppe-measures/amp/ Seat map for a Delta Airlines flight from New York to Fort Lauderdale:
