New Tesla subscription service in NYC and CA starts at $995 per month
Kyte, a startup that delivers rental cars to customers’ homes, is expanding into the vehicle-subscription business, the company announced on Thursday. It’s starting with the Tesla Model 3.
Starting April 15, customers in San Francisco and New York City (including Jersey City, New Jersey) will be able to purchase a Model 3 subscription in three-month, six-month, and 12-month terms. Kyte says it plans to expand the service to all of its 14 markets.
Hyatt Introduces Work From Hyatt: Offsite
Hyatt has launched Work from Hyatt: Offsite, a corporate retreat concept created in response to the evolution of remote work and growing demand from businesses to connect with colleagues in person, after two years of virtual collaboration. Building on the success of Work from Hyatt, which offers travelers the ability to work and learn remotely at more than 60 participating hotels globally, Work from Hyatt: Offsite provides teams the opportunity to reconnect, reinvigorate and relax together through unique team building experiences that bring people together in meaningful ways both on –and –off property.
Lawsuit says Burger King’s ads are deceptive
The suit seeks damages on behalf of the four plaintiffs and millions of others who it says suffered financial damages when they were deceived by Burger King’s photos into purchasing its comparatively diminutive sandwiches. They also want Burger King to replace the photos with ones showing the products’ actual sizes.
Nearly all products are exaggerated in menu illustrations and ads, the suit claims. A side-by-side comparison shows the chain’s photo of its Big King with two cheese-topped patties extending wider than their bun, piled high with lettuce, onion and pickles. Next to it is the actual Big King, with the meat smaller than the bun and two slices of lettuce poking from the side.
Newark airport next on deck for Port Authority makeover
With LaGuardia Airport’s almost total transformation from a politician’s punchline about being a third world facility and plans underway to rebuild JFK airport, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s attention is turning to Newark Liberty International Airport.
With construction wrapping up at the new Terminal A and future plans to replace the aging, trouble-prone monorail system, the bi-state authority’s attention is turning to planning what happens at the rest of the airport.
