Monday Midday Must-Reads

-A Southwest Airlines aircraft lost cabin pressure during its flight between Kansas City and Dallas on Saturday evening. No one was injured and the jet returned to service on Monday. The plane went into a sudden, steep dive and oxygen masks deployed, one passenger told Dallas ABC affiliate WFAA.

-The Financial Times examined how legacy carriers in Europe are losing the fight against its low-cost competitors, in this article.

-And for those who can't wait for the new Hobbit movie to arrive in theaters this holiday season, Air New Zealand (the airline of Middle Earth) employed the elves, wizards, orcs and hobbits for their latest safety video that came out last month. Check it out here.
