JFK Airport NY: New TWA Hotel Opens With Old Memories PDF Print E-mail


If you’ll need to spend a night or so at one of the world’s busiest airports, an interesting hotel will soon be available. It’s located where the old TWA (1937-1995) Flight Center terminal was located.

There will be many upscale features, including six restaurants and eight bars. To add to the memories, one bar will be in a retired and restored Lockheed Constellation passenger plane. Room reservations for the opening on May 15 are now being booked. Prices per room start at $249, just a bit higher than $5 hotel rates way back when the TWA terminal first opened.

American Airlines Pilot Arrested For Being Drunk PDF Print E-mail


According to news sources, he was pulled from his flight in England’s Manchester Airport before scheduled take-off for Philadelphia. This has happened before, and if you’re ever a passenger in the same situation, here are some clues to listen for when you hear the captains’ announcements:

All passengers fasten your chastity belts
The attitude will be very high, but not as high I am right now
This flight is headed for some place I can’t remember
I just got slapped for explaining the word cockpit to a stewardess
Damn service dogs! I just slipped on something in the aisle
Be kind to that sloppy drunk in the next seat. He’s my drinking buddy.

 
Shout Aloha To Clean Air: Hawaii May Ban Cigarettes PDF Print E-mail


Next time you visit the beautiful island state, you may notice the air is brighter and more fragrant. The suggested state law sounds like a bad joke or misprint. It recommends a gradual increase in the minimum age to buy cigarettes from the current 21 to age 100, to go into effect in 2024.

How many addicted smokers live to 100? They typically cough out their final moments by age 60 in a cancer ward. Further, in your wanderings, can you just see a group of eager centenarians lined up at the Honolulu drugstore counter to buy cigarettes for their 75-year-old kiddies?

Actually, with many other states making lots of tax income from legit marijuana, it isn’t likely a Hawaii cigarette ban would cross the ocean into other US areas any time soon. So, on your next trip to Hawaii, smoke ‘em if you got ‘em. Or just cough and find some clean air to breathe.
