Blogging at 30,000 feet

I am returning from a weekend getaway and decided to try out GoGo’s Internet service on US Airways. Not bad, I must say. WordPress is a bit quirky on the iPad. The guy next to me is probably reading this. Hey there. Enjoying SkyMall magazine? Just wanted to say this is a successful post 30,000 feet above the northern tip of Florida or somewhere close to there. Election week coming up. Going...

Flying with Dubya

I took a break from news this last weekend to fly out to Phoenix, Arizona to see my girlfriend. It was a much needed break as we don’t get to see each other very often. I had a flight out of Orlando at 7:30AM, only got in 2 hours of sleep the night before. I was in an out of consciousness as I was getting settled in 14F. Window seat. I was hoping to sleep the whole way to Memphis, then from...

US Airways Luggage Debacle: The Conclusion

Well, it seems like US Airways has done it – they followed up and offered a reimbursement on my luggage debacle. Sort of.

It should be about 8-12 weeks for some kinda of satisfaction, if any. But I am keeping a very close eye on this given the fact that hundreds of people go through this sort of...

Thank you, US Airways

Just returned from Mexico a few days ago. It was amazing. Went to Riviera Maya and stayed at the Occidental Grand Xcaret with my girlfriend (blog entry to come soon). But this post is about US Airways. We flew from Tucson to Phoenix then on to Cancun. It was a very nice flight there. Home, much of the same, although we had a delayed flight in Phoenix before coming back to Tucson. In Cancun...

Helping Haiti: $10 at a time

I was sitting in my chair watching the Fox Pre-Game show before the Cardinals/Saints game. I’ve been anxiously awaiting this weekend for weeks, as my beloved Vikings play tomorrow against the Cowboys. While watching the pre-game, or any show for that matter, Haiti is talked about constantly. If you’ve been in a hole for the past week, then you wouldn’t know that they were rocked...
