Braille on planes + Airport outdoor movies + Swifties at SJC

 When it comes to accessibility for travelers, every bit helps.

And on Thursday, United Airlines announced that a dozen of its aircraft now have Braille signage for individual rows and seat numbers as well as inside and outside the lavatories.

The Chicago-based carrier said it expects to outfit its entire mainline fleet with Braille by the end of 2026.

“Finding your seat on a plane or getting to the restroom is something most of us take for granted, but for millions of our customers, it can be a challenge to do independently,” said Linda Jojo, Executive Vice President, Chief Customer Officer for United, in a statement. “By adding more tactile signage throughout our interiors, we’re making the flying experience more inclusive and accessible, and that’s good for everyone.

Lincoln Airport’s outdoor movies

Here’s another airport amenity we love.

In the summer, Lincoln Airport (LNK) in Lincoln, NE hosts occasional free outdoor movies for the community.

The next movie is “Top Gun: Maverick,” and free tickets are available now.

The LNK movie ‘theater’ is on the west side of the airport, in an open green space. Films are projected on the side of an old Cold War hangar.

It looks like the Swifties friendship bracelet exchange at San Jose Mineta International Airport (SJC) was a big success for Taylor Swift fans arriving in town for this weekend’s concerts.
