Monday Midday Must-Reads

-Delta Air Lines is the latest carrier to cut flights to Venezuela due to the currency issue in that country. Bloomberg News reports that Delta will only have one weekly round trip between Atlanta and Caracas starting on August 1. The carrier currently has daily flights.

Elliott writes that the resolution "would update the decades-old systems that allow airlines to connect their computer records to travel agents, global distribution systems and, ultimately, you.
