Woody Allen and Amazon settle $68 million legal battle over canceled movie contract

Movie director Woody Allen and Amazon’s content arm have settled a $68 million legal battle after the U.S. company canceled a contract at the start of this year.

Allen sued Amazon for allegedly breaching the four-picture deal, which was to “finance and distribute his future films and to be his ‘home’ for the rest of his career,” according to the suit, filed in February.

But in papers filed Friday, the two parties agreed the case should be dismissed, according to an AP report. Terms were not disclosed.

Allen alleged that he had completed the movie “A Rainy Day in New York,” and spent more than $20 million in doing so before Amazon canceled its release and shelved a deal for three more movies, according to the suit.

Allen’s suit said that Amazon had backed out of the deals because of “a 25-year old, baseless allegation against Mr Allen, but that allegation was already well known to Amazon (and the public) before Amazon entered into four separate deals with Mr Allen.” Allen’s daughter Dylan Farrow accused her father of molesting her in an attic in 1992 when she was 7 years old, an allegation Allen has repeatedly denied.

In April, Amazon’s attorney Robert Klieger said that Allen’s comments about the #MeToo movement breached the deal, citing a magazine article in which he stated: “You don’t want it to lead to a witch-hunt atmosphere, a Salem atmosphere, where every guy in an office who winks at a woman is suddenly having to call a lawyer to defend himself.”

Allen’s company, Gravier Productions, got an international release for “A Rainy Day in New York,” including France, Italy and Hong Kong.

Representatives for Amazon and Allen had not responded to CNBC’s request for comment at the time of publication.

Hurricane Dorian leads to hundreds of canceled Florida flights

Empty check in lanes are seen at Air Canada at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on September 2, 2019.

Hundreds of flights into and out of Florida have been canceled as Hurricane Dorian makes its way northward along the eastern coastline of the state.

Roughly 1,200 flights scheduled to start or end in Miami, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale or Palm Beach on Tuesday have been canceled, according to FlightAware.com. Orlando International Airport is currently closed, according to its website.

More than 300 Florida flights have already been canceled for Wednesday, including 80 operating through Jacksonville, Florida.

The storm, currently classified as a Category 2 hurricane, stalled over the Bahamas during the Labor Day holiday weekend and is currently projected to move toward the Carolinas in the coming days.

“The hurricane will … move dangerously close to the Florida east coast late today through Wednesday evening, very near the Georgia and South Carolina coasts Wednesday night and Thursday, and near or over the North Carolina coast late Thursday and Thursday night,” the National Hurricane Center said in a statement on Tuesday afternoon.

American Airlines said Tuesday that it has issued a travel alert for more than 20 airports, including some in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. The alert means that the airline will waive the fees to change flight plans for future travel.

“Due to the size, strength and location of the hurricane, we will experience a disruption to our operation throughout the week, specifically on flights that operate along the East Coast,” the airline said.

Delta Airlines said Monday that it would also offer travel waivers for airports along the Georgia coastline and in the Carolinas. Spirit Airlines is offering waivers for airports in Florida through Tuesday and in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, through the end of the week.

Several airlines previously announced they would offer similar waivers for airports in Florida over the weekend.

The cancellations represent large percentages of the total number of flights through some of the airports. Half of the flights through Fort Lauderdale International Airport and 81% of the flights leaving from Palm Beach International on Tuesday have been canceled so far, according to FlightAware.

Dorian made landfall in the Bahamas as a Category 5 storm and slowed to a crawl, leaving large swaths of the islands completely underwater. At least five people have died.

Bumped, canceled and delayed: Airline passengers facing a rocky summer travel season

Airline passengers, flying in what is expected to be the busiest summer travel season on record, are confronting increases in canceled flights, the DOT data show. U.S. airlines canceled 2.4% of their schedules in the first six months of the year, up from 1.7% a year ago. American Airlines in June canceled 7,218 flights, about 4% of its scheduled operation and more than any other U.S. carrier. Overall, airlines canceled close to 15,000 flights in June, 19% more than in June 2018. American Airline

Bumped, canceled and delayed: Airline passengers facing a rocky summer travel season

Travelers wait for flights as an American Airlines Group Inc. plane sits during an event to mark the opening of five new gates inside Terminal 3 at O’Hare International Airport (ORD) in Chicago, Illinois.

U.S. airlines have been bumping travelers at three times the rate of a year ago as hundreds of out-of-service planes force passengers to play a game of musical chairs at the airport.

Carriers denied boarding to 6,589 passengers in the three months ended in June, a rate of 0.3 per 10,000 passengers, compared with a rate of 0.1 for every 10,000 in the same period a year ago, the Department of Transportation said Thursday. That rate refers to travelers whom airlines bump, but not passengers who take a different flight voluntarily.

It’s a small number of affected travelers compared with the 215 million passengers who boarded planes in the U.S., but it is partially driven by the grounding of the Boeing 737 Max, now in its sixth month. American Airlines and Southwest Airlines each have the planes in their fleet and have had to cut their growth and cancel thousands of flights as federal regulators haven’t cleared the jets to fly after two fatal crashes, the most recent an Ethiopian Airlines jet in March.

Airline passengers, flying in what is expected to be the busiest summer travel season on record, are confronting increases in canceled flights, the DOT data show. U.S. airlines canceled 2.4% of their schedules in the first six months of the year, up from 1.7% a year ago.

American Airlines in June canceled 7,218 flights, about 4% of its scheduled operation and more than any other U.S. carrier. Overall, airlines canceled close to 15,000 flights in June, 19% more than in June 2018.

Fort Worth-based American, which has about 6,700 flights a day, is in the midst of a protracted dispute with the unions that represent its roughly 12,000 mechanics. The carrier is seeking damages from the unions, which it has accused of an “illegal work slowdown” to win leverage in contract talks, a move it said has forced it to cancel 950 flights over the past two months because of out-of-service planes.

“Our biggest challenge in the operation continues to be out-of-service aircraft,” said American Airlines spokesman Ross Feinstein. “This reduces our ability to start the day right and to swap aircraft when needed as the day goes on. American Airlines team members are working diligently to take care of our customers during a challenging summer.”

Flight delays have also increased. On-time arrivals fell to 73.3% in June, down from 76.4% a year earlier.

Labor tensions flare at American Airlines over hundreds of canceled flights

Maintenance workers cover the engine of an American Airlines Group Inc. Boeing Co. 737 Max plane outside of a maintenance hangar at Tulsa International Airport (TUL) in Tulsa, Oklahoma, U.S., on Tuesday, May 14, 2019.

American Airlines has accused the unions representing its mechanics of a purposeful work slowdown to win leverage in contract talks, which it said caused more than 900 flight cancellations over the last two months. Now the airline wants compensation from the unions.

A U.S. federal court in Texas this week issued a permanent injunction against the mechanics unions for the slowdown that American alleged in a suit this spring. A day later, Fort Worth-based American Airlines, said it would seek damages from the unions — the Transport Workers Union of America and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers — saying they violated earlier court orders to resume usual work levels.

The unions, which represent the airline’s more than 12,000 mechanics, have denied the allegations.

The unions have caused “enormous financial losses to American, and untold harm in lost customer good will,” American said in its filing Tuesday. It said the amount would be determined at a hearing.

The cancellations and more than 200 delays of over two hours are compounding operational challenges at American, which like Southwest and United, has canceled thousands of flights since its new Boeing 737 Max planes were grounded in mid-March after two fatal crashes.

American last month said the Max grounding, which is now in its six month, and the mechanics’ dispute drove up its nonfuel costs in the second quarter by 5% from a year earlier.

The airline’s stock has trailed its closest competitors this year, falling 18% on Wednesday to a three-year low. Delta is up close to 15%, Southwest has risen more than 3% and United is down close to 3%.

“It would make no sense to not comply” with the judge’s orders to work at a regular pace, said TWU President John Samuelsen, adding that by complying “we will achieve contract justice for American Airlines workers.”

Work groups across airlines are clamoring for higher wages and better working conditions as the industry, better known for boom-and-bust cycles, heads toward its 10th consecutive year of profits.

Earlier this year, Southwest had a similar dispute with its mechanics, but later reached a contract with the group, their first in more than six years, and a higher pay raise than Southwest offered in previous rounds of negotiations.

Hong Kong International Airport, one of the world’s busiest terminals, has canceled all departures for the remainder of the day, citing serious disruption due to protests.

The airport authority said Monday it had canceled all flights not yet checked in by the afternoon. Around 5,000 anti-government protesters had been demonstrating at the airport for a fourth day on Monday. Some activists had reportedly moved to the departure area and caused disruption, according to the Hong Kong police. The police declined to say if it would move to clear the demonstrators.

The airport authority said in a statement: “Airport operations at Hong Kong International Airport have been seriously disrupted as a result of the public assembly at the airport today.”

“The traffic to the airport is very congested, and the car park spaces at all car parks are already full. Members of the public are advised not to come to the airport,” it added. It later advised all passengers to leave the terminal building as soon as possible.

The increasingly violent protests since June have plunged the Asian financial hub into its most serious crisis in decades and are one of the biggest popular challenges to Chinese leader Xi Jinping since he came to power in 2012.

Apple canceled AirPower, but a partner built something pretty close

Apple cancelled its wireless charging mat, called AirPower, in March. It was supposed to charge an iPhone, AirPods and the Apple Watch at the same time.

Now, Mophie will sell the next-best thing for Apple. It’s wireless charger that can power all three devices, but with a different design.

Mophie on Friday announced the 3-in-1 wireless charging pad that can wirelessly power AirPods, an Apple Watch and an iPhone at the same time.

Unlike Apple’s design, which appeared more seamless and would have allowed you to rest the Apple Watch on AirPower, Mophie’s has a dedicated and traditional Apple Watch stand. The pad costs $139.95 and is available from Apple and Mophie’s websites now, but will also be available in Apple Stores beginning next week.

The mat provides 7.5W of power for wireless devices that use the Qi standard, which means it will work with both iPhones and Android phones, or any product that uses Qi charging. However, it doesn’t support up to 15W of power, which some Android devices can use to charge even faster.

Other companies, like Nomad, sell similar products for the same price, but they don’t have the same placement on Apple’s website, which gives Mophie a leg up among people who shop in Apple Stores and on Apple’s website for accessories.
