Week in Review

Hello all…I’m back from flying around the Middle East at 4 o’clock in the morning, so I thought I’d do a quick round-up of what we missed last week:

Virgin Atlantic deferred its A380 orders until 2013.  For all the doom and gloom, the 747 was also a few years late.  45 years from now, we will have forgotten about this delay.  Because some of you will be dead by then.

Kurdistan in northern Iraq launched its first tourism campaign since the war started.

If you thought it was easy to start a website printing fake boarding passes, you’d be right.

If you thought riding the baggage carousel around Manchester (NH) airport would be fun, you’d be wrong.

And finally, you may remember the Wendy’s promotion where you collected cups to get free flights — well, it turns out it cost the airline $1.5 million.
