Cheap Flights for 50p

April 4, 2011

I just thought you might love this as much as I did.  It’s about the experience of buying ‘cheap flights’ on budget airlines.     Advertisements

XXX TSA Scanner Humour

November 26, 2010

Ok, so I just saw this and I thought it was funny, so I thought I’d post it for you to have a giggle too… It is the Saturday Night Live’s ‘take off’ of the new ‘TSA Image Campaign’. I have written before about my issues with the scanner images in this post called: TSA […]

I wish they WOULD sack Michael O’Leary and replace him with a member of Cabin Crew!

September 14, 2010

I have a new hero… I have to say, I am a self proclaimed Michael O’Leary hater… He is undoubtedly a creative marketeer, but I think his marketing tactics would be better suited to something like sleazy PR for bottom-feeding celebrities than the airline industry. Still, I guess there’s only room for one Max Clifford, […]

Air New Zealand’s bare cheek when it comes to safety

January 27, 2010

I have a friend who has moved to New Zealand recently, and my attention has since been drawn to this video… I have to say, that as far as safety demonstration videos goes, it doesn’t fail to keep your eyes glued to the screen in a ‘surely not!‘ way…  Oh, and just in case you […]

Laughter is good for the soul :)

July 23, 2009

I wanted to post this for my friends who are going through some difficult or testing times at the moment…  It’s not remotely aviation related, just made me chuckle and gave me a warm feeling inside-which is something nice I wanted to share with you too 🙂 I love the way that he even leans […]

Pam Ann Vs Virgin Atlantic

March 16, 2009

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I just found something that made me laugh sooooo hard that I almost electrocuted myself as I sprayed my laptop with the glass of water I had been drinking! Remember this post where I bitched about the new Virgin ad?  FYI here is the offending advert (please watch it if you’ve not yet seen […]

Someone please think of the poor geese!?

January 26, 2009

I just found this on DelighfulEccentric’s blog, a post called US Airways Crash – Bird Report. Its a video from the ‘bird’s eye view’ Who finds the time to make these?!

New Virgin Atlantic Advert. There are TWO pilots on the plane, damn it!

January 18, 2009

If you’re in the UK, you probably wont fail to notice the new Virgin Atlantic advert.  I’m really in two minds about it. I love the Frankie goes to Hollywood track, and all the 80’s references; but as for all the rest of the kitch, stereotype cliche’s. PLEASE!? Firstly, as Flying High said in her […]

“Don’t you worry about your Pilot in his line of work?” Errrrrrr……

January 16, 2009

Not much about Bf’s chosen career unsettles me, but the US airways Airbus A320 (flight 1539) that crashed into the Hudson River, New York managed to ruffle my feathers last night as we watched the news unfolding on the Internet.  The best website on the story that I have found (including many video updates) is […]
