Monday Midday Must-Reads

It's the Christmas Eve edition! Sky Talk was off for a few days last week to clean house for arriving relatives and here's a few things that happened in the airline world....

-American Airlines is selling its London townhouse that executives have used when they visited the U.K. According to the Los Angeles Times, the carrier has agreed to sell the home for $23 million and has filed notice with the bankruptcy court to get approval for the sale.

-Apparently a lot of people want to be flight attendants. Delta Air Lines said it received 22,000 applications for 300 open flight attendant jobs in the first week it posted the positions. The applications arrived at a rate of two per minute, Bloomberg News reported. Applicants will be interviewed in January and those hired will begin working in June. American had a similar number of applications for flight attendant positions when it opened up jobs in November.

-For the aviation and Santa afficionados...NORAD is tracking Santa's flight path as he flies around the world, using simplified flight paths per the FAA's NextGen technology plan. Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
