Vacation Day

Hi all.  I’m taking a vacation day today, so there’s no posting today.  I’ll leave you with a great spring fare sale from SWISS (now owned by Lufthansa).  Through the end of May they have $404 round trips from New York to Geneva.  Can’t beat that…

Oh, one other thing I thought was interesting:  If you were wondering why Southwest keeps making money and basically every other US airline does not, Salon’s Ask the Pilot column has the answer:  While most other airlines are stuck paying $50something dollars a barrel for fuel, Southwest has hedged its fuel buying so it is paying $25 a barrel for 80% of its fuel this year, and $31 next year.  Good work.
