What to Wear, What NOT toWear

I remember when I worked for the airlines, we were always encouraged to get into the spirit of the holidays. With the increase sensitivity of "Homeland Security", the flying public better use some common sense. (Some people take their jobs just a little too seriously)

MSNBC.com has a pretty amusing article about costumes people have actually worn to the airport on Halloween.

Big Bottoms, Bad for Bottom Line

Chinese Airline Must Reduce Number of Seats Because of Overweight Passengers, apparently we Americans are not the only group with an obesity problem.

China Eastern Airline is being forced to rearrange their seating to accommodate a burgeoning number of overweight passengers. A source at the Airline is quoted saying that they are going to need to remove 20 seats from their A321s because their passengers are getting too large for the current configuration.

It turns out that the Chinese population's growing bottoms will cause a shrinking bottom line at the airlines. (ouch !)

Hamster Grounds Austrian Flight

Interline Blog: Home

NO it wasn't "Snakes on a Plane," but an Austrian Airlines flight made an unscheduled stop Friday after a passenger sneaked a hamster aboard and It escaped.

The flight made a stop in Innsbruck so officials could search for the hamster and make sure it didn't gnaw through any wiring, the airline said.

The flight was diverted after a passenger notified the crew that he had brought a hamster aboard and had lost track of it. Passengers were ordered off the plane, and it was not clear how many people were aboard.

By midafternoon, a search of the aircraft still had not turned up any sign of the hamster, authorities said. Austrian Airlines said the jet would remain grounded until the hamster was found "because it can't take off that way for safety reasons."
