Hello from 35,000 feet. I’m on my way to New York for a quick business trip. I trust I’ll be back home, though, by the end of the day tomorrow.
Who would have thought a little story on a peacock would have gained so much attention? It has been quite awhile since one of my stories truly went “viral” but this was one of them. While a great week for the blog in terms of traffic, the aftermath of the story kept me too busy to finish several trip reports I was looking forward to publishing. Hopefully those will come this week.
In the meantime, here’s a review of the week’s top stories. I wish each of you a wonderful week ahead.
What happens when a passenger tries to bring a peacock onboard a United flight…as an emotional support animal?
A sad reminder of why it is prudent to book directly with the airline whenever possible.
I don’t know about you, but I find Lufthansa’s new livery unnecessary.
Finally, it opened! Kyle’s two-part review of a long-awaited Grand Hyatt property.
