From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

Inflight 'news' at Qantas. We wondered aloud last week if news of plane crashes and other aviation developments were censored out of inflight news on flights -- and you obliged. A host of readers confirmed there was nothing about missing flight MH370 on the TV when they flew last week. Here's a few examples:

"My wife and I flew Melbourne-Canberra on Monday on the national carrier, just as the chaos surrounding MH370 was really starting to ramp up, and she specifically commented on the complete and total absence of any mention of the story on the in-flight news, even though it was leading every 'on ground' bulletin at the time."
