This is a roundup of news that I have come across during the day. Read about the new travel ban for India, lie flat options for travel to Hawaii, United Airlines changes boarding procedure, Safeway account ban, and Resorts World Las Vegas partners with Gemini.
U.S. President Joe Biden on Friday imposed new travel restrictions on India in light of the COVID-19 epidemic, barring most non-U.S. citizens from entering the United States. The new restrictions, which take effect on Tuesday, May 4 at 12:01 am ET (0401 GMT), are on the advice of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and were imposed because “the magnitude and scope of the COVID-19 pandemic” in India was “surging,” the White House said.

“Last year, United temporarily switched to boarding from the back of the aircraft to the front to improve social distancing,” Maddie King, a United Airlines spokeswoman, said in a statement shared with Travel + Leisure. “Now that more customers are returning, this can result in customers gathering in the gate area to wait near the boarding door for their row to be called. This gathering defeats the social distancing purpose of back-to-front boarding.”
It’s a good idea not to have eyes on your accounts. The ban came because you are not able to have multiple accounts to take advantage of promos. But at the end, it all worked out. Just something to watch out for, if you use Safeway promotions.
