The study's author says, "When they close the curtains between the cabins or they remind economy passengers to not go into (the) forward cabin … it reminds people that they've paid hundreds of dollars for this experience."

Police in Oregon said a suspect led them on a chase while riding a stolen motorcycle with a vanity license plate reading “XFELON.” The Springfield Police Department said that 35-year-old Brock Antonie Williams was recognized by an officer in the parking lot of an Albertson's store. The officer determined Williams, a convicted felon, had a warrant for his arrest on a parole violation related to unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. However, Williams sped off on a Ducati motorcycle while the officer waited to be joined by a patrol officer in a marked car. The officer followed Williams in an unmarked car and made note of the "XFELON" license plate, which bore expired North Dakota tags. The patrol officer joined the pursuit and Williams fled at speeds of between 85 and 100 mph down side streets until he reached a dead end and got off the vehicle. Police arrested Williams, who claimed he hadn't been riding the motorcycle. Police discovered the bike had been reported stolen in June 2017.
