San Francisco’s Hotel Zeppelin

This past weekend I took my eight-year-old nephew on his first flight. My sister (his other auntie) accompanied us, and we chose San Francisco. The crew on board the flight out of Burbank (BUR) was amazing once they found out it was his first flight, taking him on board first and showing him the cockpit, something he will always remember!

Fewer Flights, More Passengers

The number of flights is decreasing while the number of passengers is increasing, according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. Reports show U.S. flights carried more than 201 million additional passengers than flights in 2005. There were also 1.6 million fewer U.S. flights last year compared to 2005. That resulted in an 85 percent flight occupancy rate in 2017.

The Aloha Spirit of Hawaiian Airlines

Last week, I got back from an amazing trip to Hawai'i. I'm trying to keep that tan going as my summer meetings and business get back to normal. One thing that will last is my experience on Hawaiian Airlines' newest aircraft: the Airbus A321 Neo. This mid-size jet was delivered in June and made its home at Long Beach Airport with new capabilities for the West Coast traveler. Hawaiian is using its A321neos to service mid-size mainland markets, and offer non-stop flights to islands other than O‘ahu, such as Maui and Kauai.

Flying with Kids

It had been decades since I'd last flown with little ones, so admittedly I was a bit curious/concerned/terrified of what the experience might hold in store as I prepared to fly with my daughter and 1-year-old and 4-year-old grandsons from Chicago here to Southern Oregon as her family resettles out West. With son-in-law Dan driving/towing the family vehicles cross-country, I volunteered to be the second adult to help wrangle the kids (and car seats and luggage). We flew from Midway on Southwest to Seattle, with a connecting flight from SeaTac on to Medford. The complication (and greatest concern) came in the form of having to switch airlines (to Delta) in Seattle. (Don't ask, but the reasons had to do with vouchers and miles to be used.)
