Breakfast Buzz: Transparency in Airlines


The White House may be making plans to increase transparency in airline ticket pricing. That story tops this morning’s Breakfast Buzz.

According to Reuters the Obama Administration is expected to announce plans to promote more competition in the airline industry. The news agency claims its source says that the White House wants to ensure consumers have better information about air travel costs and airline performance. This summer, three democratic senators had urged the U.S. Transportation Department to use its existing authority to allow ticket price comparison websites access to airline pricing information. Some consumer advocates say airlines are trying to hinder comparison shopping and boost prices.

Delta employees will soon be getting a new look. On Tuesday, the airline unveiled a new set of designer uniforms for its 60,000 employees. Flight attendants, gate agents and technicians are all getting the new uniforms. The travel-inspired color palette has flight attendants wearing “passport plum” and “groundspeed graphite.”  Tech employees will wear “skyline slate” and cruising cardinal.” About 1,000 of the airline’s staff will begin testing the new uniforms in December. They will be tweaked, and roll out to all employees in 2018.

Shares of Domino’s Pizza hit an all-time high after the company reported third-quarter results that were piping hot. Shares were up 6% on Tuesday.

M&M’s will soon have a trendy, permanent new flavor; caramel! Each bite-sized “lentil” of the newest candy has a soft caramel center covered in milk chocolate, and its familiar colorful shell. It promises to be a tasty addition to the milk chocolate, peanut and peanut butter flavors. A Mars Chocolate researcher says caramel is the “fastest growing segment in food right now.” While candy lovers are thrilled about the news, they will have to wait for a while. Caramel M&M’s won’t hit the market until May.
