Monday Midday Must-Reads

-The New York Times examines how passengers may be wowed by Airbus' double-decker A380 but airlines apparently are not. "Airbus has struggled to sell the planes. Orders have been slow, and not a single buyer has been found in the United States, South America, Africa or India," this article says.

-Malaysia's government has a $430 million plan to take Malaysia Airlines private after the national airline has suffered two major aircraft losses in the past year. According to the Wall Street Journal, the airline has not been profitable for the past three years and the government has injected about $1.56 billion into the airline to keep it afloat over the last decade.

-The Boarding Area had two different bloggers weigh in on American's announcement last week that it was trimming some of the meals it offered first class passengers on domestic routes. This American Airlines first class passenger wasn't pleased with the news and is going to miss the warm nuts while this US Airways elite traveler said it was good news and was excited about the cookies that will be offered.
