A few quick ones:
- Heard of JetSuite? Me, neither. They’re a private jet membership something something. I mention them here because each day they run a handful of random specials for $536 where you and a few people can fly private on a short route. What does that mean? Earlier today they had a deal where 6 people could fly from Islip to Boston (today – that’s little notice, I know) for a total of $536 on a private jet. Kinda awesome, right?
- Norwegian Air has “summoned” Boeing management to Oslo to discuss the seemingly neverending problems they’re having with the 787. “Boeing to the principal’s office….now”
- Air New Zealand is planning to fly 2 charter flights to Antarctica, where they will land a 767 on an ice runway for the first time. This is also noteworthy because ANZ was involved in a horrific crash during a flight-seeing trip over Mt. Erebus in Antarctica in 1979 that killed 257 people.
- French police seized 1.3 tons of cocaine packed into 30 pieces of luggage on an Air France flight from Caracas to Paris on September 11.
