This is a roundup of news and other interesting pieces that I’ve come across over the last few days. Read about the US case against American Airlines and JetBlue heading to court, Hertz and BP to install thousands of EV chargers, trip around three continents, Hertz arrests still happening, and new Wyndham Alltra Riviera Nayarit.
The government’s antitrust lawsuit against American Airlines and JetBlue begins Tuesday and the outcome could determine how closely the Biden administration examines other airline deals, including JetBlue’s pending attempt to buy Spirit Airlines.
The Justice Department and six states are suing American and JetBlue to break up their partnership in the Northeast, namely New York and Boston.
The rental car giant — which in the last year has announced deals to purchase a total of up to 340,000 EVs from Tesla, Polestar and General Motors by 2027 — is working with a unit of BP to install thousands of new chargers at its U.S. locations.
Under the deal, BP Pulse, the oil company’s EV-charging arm, will install the chargers and provide software and services to help Hertz manage its fast-growing fleet of EVs.

There have to be hundreds of people who have accused the company of having them falsely arrested over their rental cars, and the timeline of this problem has only gotten worse since its began.
In April, a former manager turned whistleblower for the company came forward saying Hertz was going about the arrests the wrong way, and that they were happening because of how outdated the company’s systems are. Not long after, a whopping 300 people came forward and claimed the false arrests; three months later another 47 people sued the company over the arrests. And now more customers are accusing the company.
