More travel professionals get their industry news from Skift’s trusted editors and reporters than any other source.

Yesterday travel personality, author, and TV host Anthony Bourdain’s flight on American Airlines was delayed. That’s not really news. What is news is the stated reason for the delay, which was unique, to say the least. And although it wasn’t the epic rant that the New York Post claimed it to be, it was entertaining. It begins with a tweet to his wife and ends with Bourdain pooh-poohing the reason behind the delay.
