Get Out of Town, With Pete Best

A couple of low cost deals for you this morning:

Gate 1 Travel has a great deal on its 5-day Venice Package. For $399, you get r/t air from NYC and 3 nights hotel. You usually can’t find airfare alone to Venice for that price.

Gate 1 also has a fantastic fly/drive deal to Europe. For $299, you get a flight from NYC and 7 days car rental in Amsterdam.

Oh yes, and Pete Best. For some reason Icelandair, the grandaddy of the budget airlines, has signed so-called 5th Beatle Pete Best for “various projects” for the airline. No word on what those various projects are.


  1. we’re not a scuttle airline, we’re a rock and roll airline. And we’re not an airline, we’re a carrier.

  2. Well played, Mr. Doodee.
