Estonian Air Goes Platinum

The International Air Transport Association has awarded Estonian Air with Platinum-Airline status. "The Estonians have replaced the magnetic-card boarding pass reader with a bar-coded reader," said an IATA spokesman. Whether this means the airline is now connected to European passenger booking systems the spokesman could not say but noted that "a bar code reader is still better than a sharp stick in the eye."
To celebrate the new bar code reader's arrival, Estonian Air will sell its famous lukewarm inflight tea for only 3 EUR per cup during the month of December.
