    It doesn't scale well to planes that fly over 30,000 feet, that rarely gets filmed or looked at.

    Then again one airline company could be <something> and buy ad space on another airline company.

    Then you also have to worry about repainting the planes when the ad term limit is up.

    <something> = rude, sneaky, bold or anything else one wants to put here.

    You're in "Oh, please" mode this week, Random!

    Decades before "staycation" became part of the vernacular, I moved to my ultimate vacation destination. I have no desire to vacation...or live...anywhere else.

    In regards to advertising on planes, it can be done with decals I think. Hawaiian Airlines has in the past flown the Oakland Raiders NFL football team (Raiders logo on side of jet) and last year, I think they had one plane with the University of Hawaii logo on it when it became the charter airline to fly the football team to the Sugar Bowl last year.

    Remember, airliners do spend many hours on the ground at various terminals across the nation and the world. They slowly taxi from one part of the airport to another.

    Advertising may be something to look into. If not on the plane certainly more of it inside then, like ad panels on the sides of the inside luggage compartment doors, in the bathroom, wherever. They have a captured audience once airborne.
    I'm still here. Are you?

    "Vacation" is by The Go-Go's; "Staycation" is by The Stop-Stop's. Easy to confuse the two.

    Note to Random: lucky you live Moloka`i - good reason to stay close to home, yeah?

    I don't think I did the quote thing right.....someday I'll get it....
    But I agree with Tutusue. I'm not living anywhere else and I hate to travel anywhere else. When the inevitable comes and my beloved mother finally leaves us I can stop traveling that 8 hours twice a year to the mainland and enjoy things here on vacation. What a joy it would be to be able to stay home for a whole week or two and just enjoy things here. I've never been to Europe and I have no interest in ever going.

    If the inside turns into some like TheBus, I want a $40 monthly Air Pass.

    That wouldn't happen, Helen. Companies are very conscious of avoiding "product conflicts".

    That's what I usually do in a crowded bus. I'm lucky if I could find a seat. Even luckier if someone would sit next to me. Yeah, I'm that fugly.

    LA airport is going to see a 16.4 % reduction in the number of flights. "High fuel prices and travelers without extra cash for plane tickets will result in drastic cuts in the number of flights at Los Angeles International Airport."

    It is expected that "American Airlines plans to eliminate 86 arrivals and departures at the airport per week in November, Delta plans to eliminate 68, United plans to cut 266 flights, and those big airlines' regional affiliates also plan to eliminate more than 1,200 weekly commuter flights at the airport".

    The slow airline decline continues.
    Now run along and play, but don’t get into trouble.

    Nope.

    But at least I can tolerate Raiders fans. 49ers fans, not so much.

    "United Airlines, the No. 2 U.S. carrier, is doubling the fee for checking a second bag on domestic flights to $50 each way, blaming higher jet-fuel costs."

    Family of four. 10 day vacation. 2 luggages each. $400 extra fee!
    Family discussion:
    "Honey, we might as well just drive to San Diego and stay in a nice hotel there. Or, how about Disneyland?"
    Tourism is going to be affected - anyone in the hotel or food industry, save your pennies now while you have them.
    Now run along and play, but don’t get into trouble.
