As you probably remember I’ve joined a yearlong monthly event called We Are The World Blogfest.
The purpose of this event is to highlight positive news stories, presenting them on your blog on the last Friday of the month.
This being the last Friday of January, I have a story, or four, to share with you, my gentle readers and fellow #WATWB participants.
THE NEWS STORIES
• A lucky woman gets to fly on a commercial airline flight as the only passenger. If only.
• A piece of luggage that keeps track of you. Cool.
• An impatient baby arrives mid-flight attended by not one, but two, doctors. Cuteness.
• A free drink in the main cabin on a shuttle flight makes flying fun again. Huzzah!
I had no difficulty finding positive news stories about airlines this month. As a traveler who is often disgruntled with the airlines and known to express said disgruntlement to the powers that be, I was surprised.
I don’t tend to think of air travel in a favorable light.
But the above links suggest that maybe, just maybe, there’s hope for an industry that is known more for annoying passengers than pleasing them.
At least that’s the idea I’m going to dwell on here in this particular post.
And on the note, with a hat tip to Schubert Piano Sonata in A major D. 959, I’ll leave you with the theme from Wings, one of my favorite 1990s TV shows. Sandpiper Air made flying look like so much fun.
