Greetings from South Florida! Johnny Jet has
been in and out of airports all week (I think I've been on five flights
since Friday). I started my adventure off in NYC, where I went into
the office and promoted one of our groups website: www.lmntmusic.com, check
Then I flew on two airlines I normally don't
(which means I had no pull and had to fly coach :-(). I can't stress
it enough, if you fly a lot make sure you stick to ONE airline. Unless
of course your preferred airline (as in my case) doesn't fly to where you
are going, and if they did, it was waaaay over priced (you have to be wise
if it's worth giving up the miles/priority for price/convenience). Believe
me, I hate flying when I am not accruing double or triple miles.
The good news is I did learn a few rules and
tricks while experimenting with other airlines. One is if you book a ticket
with Spirit Airlines and you are a no show, you forfeit your ticket. UNLESS,
you call at least an hour before to cancel. TRICK to getting your money
back: If your forget to make that call before your departure, then call
up afterwards and ask for a supervisor. I don't condone lying, but
when the rules are so ridiculous, you have no choice. Tell the supervisor
you called earlier and the agent you spoke to said "don't worry about it",
and that they must've not made a record in your reservation, and
it's not your fault. Got it!
The other rule, I learned involves USAir. My
Dad and I went to Erie, PA from LGA (via PIT). My Dad shows up to the airport
late (as usual) and says he couldn't find his license. I said "well have
a nice drive back to Connecticut...... (just kidding)". We went to
the gate agent and the lady in LGA let him slide with just showing two
credit cards. The gate agent in Erie said credit cards weren't good enough
and made him show his Social Security card. If you lose your license, don't
fret. Just make sure you bring some form of ID. The best advice I can give
you is (not to lose your license, duh!) to empty out all your credit cards,
passport, and what ever else you have in there. Photocopy the front
and backs, then store it some where safe. That way you always have back
You know when I'm traveling with my Dad I gonna have a good story to
tell you, which I do. While waiting for our delayed flight my Dad
decides to have a hot dog (he's always hungry). He is going to kill me
for sharing this picture/story with you but I have no choice, it's too
funny to let sit in my computer and head. My Dad for the life of him could
not open the packet of mustard, and he was pulling, twisting.... He asked
me to open it and I said "yeah, give me a second, I'm on the phone".
Well he couldn't wait. He starts ripping it with his teeth, and yep, just
as you guessed it went
Good ole' Dad. I can't take him anywhere.
Well, after that ordeal we took the hour flight to Pittsburgh (I gotta
tell you it stinks flying in the back of the bus, I was so crammed I couldn't
even work on my computer. USAir needs to take out some rows!) and met Amber.
Then we all got on the short thirty minute flight
to Erie. Would you believe a cosmopolitan guy like myself loves
going to Erie? Well, I do. I find it real relaxing, they have awesome sunsets
(3rd best in the world), thunderstorms (#1 in my book), golf courses (really
only one good one, and it's private), and they have one of my favorite
grocery stores in America (Wegmans has everything). We went to Erie
because my Niece was going to have a B-Day party there with some old friends.
She had a Princess and Prince party, and we all dressed up. I was Prince
Charming of course! The party was at the Children's Museum
and it was amazing. For one thing they have the coolest make believe grocery
stores around. They also had a ballerina
to entertain all the kids, but I think my nephew
stole the show. He was so funny up on stage singing a garbled rendition
of "Row Row Your Boat". Cinderella had two of the nicest
cakes I have ever seen, too bad Uncle Johnny was on a diet, NOT!.

Coping with Carry-Ons (part 1)
Recently, the airlines have gone to great lengths to lay the blame
on passengers for carrying on too many bags. But why is it that travelers
opt to carry on the majority of their luggage? Is it because they want
to inconvenience airline employees? Hardly. Passengers have a well-founded
distrust of the airlines' baggage-handling system. Most seasoned travelers
have had a bag delayed, lost, pilfered, or destroyed at one time or another.
Over the past decade, the airlines have crammed as many seats as possible
into each plane, removing any hint of legroom. Many have gone so far as
to remove closets and shelves that were once used to handle overflow from
overhead bins in order to install extra seats. And passenger loads are
at an all-time high. That means there is precious little space for any

cut costs by pulling out of some unprofitable markets beginning July 9.
Fliers there will be served instead by United Express flights on smaller
regional jets. The airports are Jacksonville, Fla.; Lincoln, Neb.; Memphis;
Milwaukee; Nashville; and Saginaw, Mich. United also will drop its Palm
Springs, Calif., flights, where United Express already has 17 daily flights.
Ending this fall: American Airlines
says it will discontinue non-stop flights from Los Angeles to Paris and
Chicago to Rome starting Nov. 1 for economic reasons. It will continue
non-stop service to Paris and Rome from other U.S. airports.
