Monday Midday Must-Reads

-Airline reporter Ted Reed as a good piece in Forbes on how the Boeing 787 is making China routes affordable. Reed, who flew on United Airlines' inaugural flight from San Francisco to Chengdu earlier this month, looks at Hainan Airlines' new Boston-Beijing route which launched on Friday.

-Dallas Morning News columnist Mitchell Schnurman looks at how American and Southwest appear to be switching roles as to who holds the title of most fun airline in the Metroplex. 

-Airlines have turned into weather forecasters, as Bloomberg News shows in this article.
