Today is my last day. Thank you, everyone, for reading.

Dear Readers:

I’m sad to report that today is my final day reporting on airlines and airports for the Los Angeles News Group. Next week, I will begin a new gig covering airlines in the Americas for Aviation Week.

I have had great fun during the past year with this blog, and we have built up a nice readership. I am grateful to all of you for reading and sharing your comments.

Once again, I’d like to thank my editors here — Michael Anastasi, Toni Sciacqua, Carolina Garcia and Frank Suraci — for giving me this opportunity.

Happy flying.

    It’s always sad to see seasoned reporters go. (Best of luck to you, Brian!) But…
    this is Front Page News today, 20 days after its Internet edition dateline? C’mon, P-T…! Your reading public out here, trying to understand why we would still care what is published by our own hometown newspaper, see a “headline” with no “by-line” (“Today is my last day…”) don’t care much for skulduggery or trickery. Now I have one less local story available to me between now and July under the “five’s the limit!” rule on-line freeloaders like me are saddled with. And I was afraid maybe Greg Mellon or Tracy Manzer was leaving. Oh… Sorry… Must’ve missed those stories for some reason.
