The Morning Shave

The Entire Nation of New Zealand Is Doing a Secret Santa and We Want in. – How cool is that?  It went from an idea of one man on Twitter to now being a state-sponsored event.  The power of an idea!

American Airlines 737MAX8 “Like a flying prison.” – This writer does not hold back about how horrible it is to fly in the new cramped seating arrangement on the AA 737MAX8’s.  I’m not a big dude, and even I’m squeezed on planes today.  I can’t imagine how it can get worse… but apparently it can.

Not sure which will be comfortable, these or the new AA 737MAX8 seats?

Is Anxiety Leading to More Travel Insurance Sales? – It totally is.  I even bought travel insurance for the first time this year.  I just wish that I had bought it before Timmy and I got stranded in the Cayman Islands and Atlanta on our way home from the Kimpton Seafire Resort.

Star Wars: The Vacation. – This could be epic.  Think the wife would agree to it?

JetBlue Eliminates Free Standby, Increases Price For Same Day Flight Changes. – Not cool JetBlue.  Some really negative changes from an airline I thought was more similar to no-fee airline Southwest than the “we charge for everything” big-boy airlines.
