I fly a lot. Maybe not as much as some but to me anyone who flies 100+ segments a year flies a lot. Something I hear over 100 times a year then is to put away our laptops (I’m ok with that) and also to put away our DVD players. Now kids, by a show of hands, how many of you over the past 5 years have brought a DVD player on a Delta jet. Folks if your hand just shot up, it is time to upgrade and to LET GO! Then maybe Delta can stop reminding us about 90’s tech before each flight (and yes if you have Zune you need to upgrade too)!
The next one comes to you courtesy of Delta.duhhhhh! I mean I love my upgrade. Maybe a little too much. In fact today I am on a mileage run to the same city I started from (after a week of flying) ! I always make sure I get all my upgrades I can get and don’t do ANYTHING to sabotage my upgrade chances. But I don’t think Delta could upgrade me on CRJ200 from DTW-SBN – do you? 😉
Speaking of seats, this next one is from the Non-Rev Delta folks. That is those who can basically fly for almost free on Delta. That is not funny at all but a Delta international jet with almost 2000 seats would be AMAZING. I mean, for a Non-Rev your upgrade shot should always be 100% right (well other than this one flight I guess)? Then again, can you even think about a plane that could hold 2000 people? Hummm…
A reader sent me this shot of 3 Dreamlifters. I don’t know, I just think this is a funny looking aircraft. Maybe it is just me. Do you think it is ugly or fun?
This next one from a thread at the Delta FlyerTalk thread just hit me as a REALLY moment! First, that it was put up in public and next what was said. Don’t know if any of it is really true but wow was it a funny read! Agree?
This last one made me howl out loud. I mean I get companies have to dance such a thin line when it comes to social media. Try to be funny and if not work and you get crushed. Do nothing and you get called out for being a hard-hearted corporate beast. So here, my fellow blogger Summer tweets and United decided to jump in and see what they can do to help. Errr, uh, United, I don’t think you own any SPG hotels. And if you did, I am sure they would be broken (I think I should ask Fake Jeff about this one)!
So there you are. I hope these made you giggle a little today (we sure need it this week after all the Delta news). Got any fun travel ones you have found? Please comment on the blog and include a link so we can all enjoy them too! – René
