"I Have Ebola!" Shouts Passenger, Medical Commando Boards Plane

“I have Ebola! You are all screwed.”

Not very smart to be shouting that in a plane. A “joke of poor taste” doesn't even begin to describe what ensued.

Passengers were ordered to stay in their seats as emergency medical teams dressed in protective suits boarded the aircraft at Punta Cana airport to confront a traveller who had been coughing during the trip from the US.

A few minutes later the man, said to be a 54-year-old from the US, was escorted from the US Airways aircraft protesting, “I ain’t from Africa. S***.”

US Airways Repainted American Airlines in 90 Seconds

I really really loved US Airways (at least for crossing the pond) and its logo. Not being a OneWorld customer, I might never fly American Airline, but I'd like to thank them for that cool time-lapse video of an A319 livery change.

You can spot the sanding, washing and sealing the seams, the base coating, and another coating with stencils applied. I like how AA has retained some sheen with its new livery, as an hommage to aircrafts' aluminum past.
