Is airline bar-stool squatting the next cheap travel pain?

Mike O’Leary, CEO of Ryan Air, is known for his joking around. He was the first to suggest airlines put in pay toilets. Now he’s talking about offering cheaper fares to people willing to fly squatting on close-packed stools.

His theory, if he isn’t kidding, is that by using bar stools instead of regular airline seats, and he could jam another 50 percent more people onto each flight. O’Leary adds that if passengers accept the idea, and with a full aircraft, he can not only cut costs, but also reduce prices.

O’Leary, known for his often disturbing Irish wit, is suspected of joking on the bar stool idea, because he recently came up with the pay toilet in the air idea. He said passengers would use credit cards in slots to activate toilet doors, and be charged from one U.S. dollar on up to an English pound for each potty break. What's next? Airline straphanging?

In reality, there are potential falling hazards when touring close to the Grand Canyon's North or South Rims. Be sure to keep kids near at all times, and for little ones age four and under, hold firmly by the hand.

Airplane

USA Today and the New York Times reported that the passengers who survived that belly-flop Flight 1549 US Air landing in the Hudson River in January will finally get their luggage delivered to them.

Nearly five months later, but considering what could have happened to them, the passengers are just happy to have their clothing and other personal items back again. Additionally, they’re getting a lot more than just some soggy socks, drenched dresses and water-logged luggage. US Air and its insurance company, to get off the hook from possible legal actions, have offered each passenger $10,000.

 
Disney to build hotel-resort near Washington, D.C. PDF Print E-mail

According to USA Today and the Washington Post, Disney will put up a 500-room hotel resort near Washington D.C. within the next year or two. About 15 years ago, Disney attempted to get permission to build a big theme park in nearby Virginia. However, because it could possibly disturb some Civil War battlefields, the request was turned down.

A Disney official said the new hotel will be "a family-friendly base camp, from which visitors from around the world can explore the stirring sights and inspirational stories of our nation's capital." Although the new Disney venture won’t have any of the familiar Disney features, we have suggestions for Washington- and government-themed attractions to draw in those world travelers.
