carrier and ISP are equal entities (and in a lot of cases, the exact same company!)
Third party means anybody but you or the government. So even if you're communicating directly with another person, while it's on the wire or frequency, it's 3rd party data. (Yes I know not the content - though that's likely to be made public me thinks - just the meta data about your communications)
probably because it's quite expensive to ship live 'cargo'. But it's a valid tactic that I'm sure will be used before long. Hard to argue with recorded temps in the 100sF when you promised AC accommodations.
UA specifically wants *only* business class customers. My cousin married a Kiwi, and on their annual trip their, even the steward/esses said so explicitly.
They make no money on 'people' fares. Only biz class, so they go out of their way to impart that with service to match.
My own experience flying to London from DC was the same. The English crew was nothing but proper, nice and downright welcoming. The American crew was hard pressed to care about even providing food on a multi-hour flight.
One caveat is the different ways music is consumed vs a movie.
You tend to listen to a song multiple times, so a streaming service becomes useful because renting it per use is something that can make the creator more money.
Movies are generally watched once...maybe twice.
The economics are significantly different when considering a the pay for play type licensing of streaming.
It's a changing world, but without acknowledging the differences of what is being offered in the changing world, changes are doomed to failure. And yes this goes both ways, both from people/streaming providers and from the movie studios themselves.
