What is InMotion Pictures
InMotion Pictures provides affordable personalized entertainment for your
trip. We offer several types of options to fit your specific travel needs
including: One-way, Round trip, In-airport and Movie-only rentals. Pricing
for One-way and In-airport rentals is $10 and includes one movie. Round-trip
rentals are $10 a day and include a movie per day (i.e. a 3 day rental is
$30 and includes 3 movies). The Movie-only rental is $5 per movie and is good
for a five day period. Rentals can be picked up at any of our airport locations
(more to come) and returns can be processed by our staff or simply dropped
in any of our 24 hour drop boxes.
If you're not already, we hope you will become a member of InMotion Pictures
and experience what passengers are calling "a cool, fast, affordable
entertainment service." How it Works: The "InMotion Pictures Location
Network" allows customers to rent and return players and movies to any of
our existing locations. Customers are asked to simply fill out a brief membership
form which establishes a customer profile. Once this profile has been established,
customers may rent portable DVD players and movies from any of our locations.
Greeting from L.A.! This week the temperatures
went from 84 to 44 degrees and I didn't even have to travel get those extremes.
I decided to lay low and work on these new city portals: Dallas
D.C. | La$
Vega$ | New
Orleans (They can be found on the bottom of the
Since I was working so much this week it has been
pretty uneventful, but don't worry next week will be different (I'm going
to the airport in a few hours).
Here are some highlights from this week: Went
to my cousin Art's house to make meatball
grinders, and ate them in this cool,
in San Pedro. On the way back home, Amber and I went looking
for whales. Unfortunately, we didn't see any
(too early). For dinner, we took out Marc
Meredith (one of our Jet
Writers) to C&O (Cheese and Olive) in Venice. It's an awesome and
inexpensive Italian restaurant where they play (every hour) my favorite
Italian song..."When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie.....".
Everyone sings along and the waiters come by toasting
The weather warmed up for the weekend and it was perfect
out here. It was just like summer, but even better because it was less crowded.
The beach city residents were out rollerblading, biking, and playing
v-ball (as you can see I was no different).
One of the funniest things I did this week was add my cousins to the website
www.amihotornot.com. The only pictures I had just
happened to be them wearing Johnny
Jet clothing. I uploaded them and sent them the links as a joke (here
they are: Art
/ Joe ).
They weren't too happy with me, but when we saw my web reports that night
that I had so many referrals from those pictures I decided to upload a picture
with a JJ hat on (free promotion!). I encourage all of you to help spread
the good word about www.johnnyjet.com. We need hits!
Until next week.....
For those of you who don't know we have a Johnny
Jet Forum. This week's topic is Time Shares. If you have any knowledge
of them click this link below, and share your thoughts:
time I go on vacation, I go to the "Timeshare" demo/sales pitch.
received many rewards like dinners, show tickets, even $$. Their pitch sounds
like a good deal, but I am unsure. Has anyone had any experiences with these?
Let us all know!

OF THE WEEK:
do the runway and taxi sign mean and say?
QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
your impression of main cabin passengers who upgrade themselves by sneaking
into the first or business class cabin? Have you ever intervened? Have
their ever been passengers who refuse to move back?
QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
wife was hired by U.S.Air as a flight attendant. I am concerned about
her being away so much. How common is cheating with flight attendants?
TIP OF THE WEEK:
Trade Show Tips Part 2
Watch out for huge trade shows that can clog a city's airport and fill hotels
unexpectedly. But if you are headed to that crowded show, here are some
o Set up meetings with important contacts before the convention, because
once you get there, you'll be competing with hundreds of other attendees,
not to mention cocktail parties, banquets, and breakout meetings.
o While trade shows are a big part of doing business in the United States,
the concept is even more popular overseas. No smoking, no eating rules that
are standard at U.S. trade shows may jot apply elsewhere. Europeans use
trade shows as an opportunity to do business, like signing major contracts
or making deals, whereas Americans tend to use trade shows for networking
and relationship maintenance.

GOOD TO KNOW!
From Tennis Pro Jack
Got a travel tip for anyone who's interested: when you need to get more
pages for your passport or need to renew your passport, do it outside of
the country at a US Consulate if possible. I went into the consulate
in Milan with one page left in my passport and was able to get a new passport
with extra pages in thirty minutes for $40 USD. Many of my friends
have had similar positive experiences doing it this way; I doubt many people
have as much luck when they cruise in to their local post office.
