Sad elephants, unhappy cheapskates and a very ugly photo. Lighten up, people – the Great American Pie Festival is coming!
Aww: Couple traveling to NYC to marry didn’t know they needed a witness and didn’t have one. JetBlue to the rescue: a very nice flight attendant not only stood up for them but bought the wedding cake, too.
Best hotel amenity: Good water pressure – at least according to this study. Huh.
Yay, Spirit: Loud-talking financial guy Cramer praises the airline’s profitability prowess – it’s made money every year since 2007. Will other carriers take the hint and also start charging for water?
Don’t make elephants cry: Thailand is telling tourists, don’t buy ivory – even if it’s just a ring or bracelet. Violate their Endangered Species regulations and you could be arrested.
Cheap spring break: New list of “affordable” Spring Break spots includes some that made FareCompare’s best Spring Break destinations but also includes Hawaii (?) and other pricy spots. Fails to mention my usual default position (“the back yard”).
Apple gets richer: Qantas starts handing out iPads on Sydney-Honolulu flights and the popular tablets are also replacing paper flight manuals at Frontier. Seems like iPads’ve been around forever, right? Try 3 years.
Beautiful pictures: Some seriously lovely images of passengers photographed through plane windows.
When planes collide: OK, collide might be a bit strong, but after an Air India flight landed at JFK it did bump a parked JetBlue plane. No one was hurt but the JetBlue can’t be happy – its A320 was damaged.
Baby on board: Woman gives birth to healthy baby boy on South African Airways flight from Johannesburg to New York. The boy is named Mamel Joella. We were hoping for Jet.
