American Express and Crowne Plaza Hotels and Resorts inked a deal that reserves club floors at the chain’s 20 U.S. properties for customers of American Express Travel. Guests pay less than the typical corporate rate, claims the agency, and get amenities and privileges. You don’t have to be a regular AmEx travel customer to get the same deal, says a spokesperson. You even can pay with Visa.

Rep. Bud Shuster (R-Pa.) proposed a measure that would force airlines to compensate passengers stuck on runways. They would get twice their air fare if left sitting more than two hours, three times the fare for waits of three to four hours, and so on. Wouldn’t that be nice?
