Flight Attendant Starts Successful Business Amid COVID-19

While every industry was affected by the coronavirus pandemic, the travel world was one of the hardest hit. Hotels closed, and travel restrictions made it impossible for airlines to function at full capacity. That meant everyone from pilots to baggage handlers had their hours, pay, and even jobs slashed. A new report even suggests that some 100,000 airline jobs could be lost by next week if the government doesn’t step in to help. But even with all of that downturn, one flight attendant used the extreme circumstances to get creative. 

Keith Bellatrand was a successful flight attendant until COVID-19 hit. Unemployed and with no end in sight, he had to figure out a way to revamp his career. Contemplating his skills that could bring

‘Tiger King’ subject Jeff Lowe demanding a cut of Joe Exotic’s successful clothing line

“Tiger King” subject Jeff Lowe is going after his former business partner Joe Exotic over his popular new fashion line.

Joseph Maldonado-Passage, better known as Joe Exotic, is serving time for a failed murder-for-hire plot against his rival, Big Cat Rescue CEO and current “Dancing with the Stars” contestant Carole Baskin. However, that hasn’t stopped him from capitalizing on a clothing line with Odaingerous called “REVENGE.”

The clothes, which include underwear, hoodies and sweatshirts, sport the Joe Exotic name, which Lowe tells TMZ he owns the trademark to.


Lowe reportedly had his lawyers fire off a cease-and-desist letter to Odaingerous claiming he’s owed a cut of the profits for anything that’s sold with the Joe Exotic label on it. He threatens to sue the clothing company if it doesn’t start negotiating a licensing deal with him or

Online grocer Ocado says its switch to delivering Marks & Spencer food has been “successful” and demand is rising despite a rocky start.

The firm, which previously delivered for Waitrose, had to cancel some orders when its new partnership launched on 1 September, angering customers.

But it said launch day had been its “biggest forward order day to date” amid excitement about the new tie-up.

Average shopper baskets have also grown by about five items since then.

It comes as the firm reported a 50% jump in sales for the third quarter of the year at its Ocado Retail business, in which M&S holds a 50% stake.

Ocado said it had benefited from continued strong demand for online shopping during lockdown, with weekly orders climbing 10% in the 13 weeks to 30 August.
