Notice: Function amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `init` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the plugin with slug `jetpack` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

PreCheck is the TSA program that lets you bypass the lengthy “standard” security lines at US airports. If you have PreCheck you can use the short line, leave shoes on and leave liquids and computers in your carry-on luggage.
Now Frontier and Spirit have indicated that they will join PreCheck…the last US-based carriers to do so.
This summer the U.S. government will award permission for 30 flights per day from the United States to Cuba…20 to Havana, 10 to smaller cities. Airlines applying for these need to tell why they are a good choice, and why the other airlines are not.
So, the airlines have come out swinging.
JetBlue says it is the “leading domestic airline at JFK,” a claim which Delta described as “demonstrably false.”
Southwest applied for 9 of the 20 daily flights to Havana, saying it can offer lower fares than its competitors…even lower than Spirit. American Airlines described some of Southwest’s application as “absurd.”
American also slammed Alaska Airlines application.
It looks like both fares and seat availability to Cuba will be low.
In my particular case, I have long legs and am confident that I would not be a happy camper in one of their closely-packed 28-inch-pitch seats. In a “Big Front Seat” I think I could be happy…I’ll have to try it one day.
