December 14, 2018: A New York mattress company is offering Manhattan naps — for $25 you can try for a 45 minute nap in your own private darkened space. They say the $25 gets you peace and quiet for 45 minutes — body lotions, skin balms, jammies and a toothbrush are all extra!
December 13, 2018: The new project is called, “Backyard” and Airbnb says they will be building these small houses for owners who want to rent out rooms and share living spaces with the owner. They say it’s to offer “flexible living spaces” for owners and travelers — AirBnb, and this concept, not a TC favorite!!!
December 12, 2018: Yup — really happed — somewhere in Australia recently — the pilot of a small 2 engine plane took a nap — and flew over 50 miles past his landing destination — was a charter flight and management explained, “you know, sometimes, these things just happen.” Oh my!!!
Regional jet manufacturer Embraer is set to build a new small jet — appropriately named “the profit hunter” (customer airlines will love that, not sure about the passengers?) and it will be painted to look like a Great White Shark! Hopefully this design and paint thinking works out and no “splash” back from flyers?
December 10, 2018: Never — ever — fly first class— it ruins flying in coach forever!!!
December 3, 2018: … But passengers on crowded planes certainly aren’t during the holidays!
October 4, 2018: Watch out for cliffs and roosters!
September 24, 2018: Airport security is in place to protect you — but might also make you sick? Where are the most germs looking for you at the airport — the heavily used and reused plastic trays used to collect laptops, shoes, coats, handbags, what ever as you pass through security check points — WORLDWIDE! These trays are “supposedly” scheduled for steam cleaning several times a year — but who’s keeping track? More than half of the luggage trays checked were found to have some type of virus — more than airport toilet seats.
September 18, 2018: Airplanes and hot air balloons dot the skyline these days at Sonoma County’s Charles Schulz Airport!
June 8, 2018: The TC most unfavorite room booking service, Airbnb, has added a new upscale category to its booking services — Airbnb Plus — that features more “stylish homes” that have actually been “verified” (or so they say) by their inspectors. Prices start on the low end at $250 per night and go up — and can include everything from Wi-Fi to upscale linens. For an additional cost you can even have a private driver. The TC would rather stay in an upscale hotel that has access to everything — even room service!!!
