Air Mauritius Paid Upgrade Offer

Air Mauritius will sell you an upgrade from Cape Town to Mauritius for ZAR1,600 any day. That's about $107 and great value for a 4.5 hour flight. It's an A319, so don't expect flat beds, but the meal, space, and lounge would be worth it.

First Class Fun on QANTAS

It's better to fly first, especially in an emergency. The guy on the safety card seems to enjoy the brace position.

It's snowing in Denver this weekend. I'm dreaming of warmer destinations like LGB.

JNB Airport Viewing Deck

Nice to have a viewing deck, but not much of a view.  It's most popular as a smoking deck for employees.

OR Tambo Airport - JNB

Johannesburg Airport, JNB, has some IT issues. Their website is broken, the video explaining security and customs wasn't working in line, and I noticed their copy of Windows is not genuine.

Loo With A View

I found this in the SLOW (Comair) lounge in Cape Town. The entire lounge had stunning views, even the bathroom.

Round the World

I flew around the world this month and am working on some posts. I'm a fan of the right side of the aircraft, so enjoy some preliminary photos.
