Docu-series "Fly Girls" set to take off on the CW!

The CW television network announced a partnership with Virgin America to produce a tv show called "Fly Girls", going over the lives of many Virgin America flight attendants. I wonder if this will be anything like any of the other shows following the lives of airline employees?

Does anybody remember "Airline" or "Flight Attendant Training School"? I was in love with those two shows! I don't really know how good this show will be, but I look forward to seeing it.

Since this show will air on the CW, instead of A&E or the Discovery Channel, I think this show will be targeted more towards women than aviation geeks. But I still wonder how exactly the day-to-day life of a Virgin America flight attendant goes, so I think this show can be successful.

A quote from the VX facebook page:
“This show is about real, down-to-earth young women who happen to have landed in an exceptionally glamorous, high-flying career filled with exotic locations and handsome strangers,” said Kristen Vadas, Senior Vice President, Alternative Programming, The CW. “We’re thrilled to be working with Virgin America for this unique peek into a whirlwind lifestyle that shows how tough it is to be grounded when you work 35,000 feet in the air.”

American AAdds more destinations to ORD!

American Airlines has announced the addition of 57 new flights into Chicago!

While this is good for Chicago, these flights were possible due to a severe reduction in flights for St. Louis! American reduced 46 flights from STL, leaving it with only about 20 flights to 9 destinations. This is a huge setback for STL, as now they basically have no carrier hubbed there! (if you want to call what AA had a "hub")

Anyways, it should be interesting to see how UA reacts to this--considering they have gotten rid of most of their narrowbody fleet, and most of their hubs are being attacked by other carriers. But UA is currently serving many of the destinations AA has added, so this could play out well, and we may see some routes return to mainline service to compete with AA.

Thank You Southwest Airlines! :)

My birthday is in a few days, and today I recieved an uncexpected item in the mail from SWA's CS/RR dept!

They sent me a birthday card, and I am really appreciative of it! Not many people remember my b-day, and for an airline to remember my b-day, I got excited by that! (I am a total airline geek :)

Even though it is a small card, it is still a nice gesture that reminds me of the SOUTHWEST SPIRIT, and "awesomeness" of Southwest Airlines! It is nice gestures like this + the friendliness of their employees that makes SWA my #1 airline, and the airline I hope to work for after I finish my schooling! :)

Many companies today are probably not willing to spend the money to even send out nice gestures like this to their customers, so this is greatly appreciated! :)

I just wanted to say a big thank you to the friendly people at Southwest Airlines, and tell you guys how much I appreciate this nice gesture!

Little Airport

I got this video from Dan at "Things in the Sky", and I thought it was awesome, so I wanted to share it here.

It is basically somebody using a Tilt-Shift filter on a video camera, while going plane is awesome! :)
