    And I thought Atlanta lost a lot of bags (Hi, ByDesign :D)

    You should be glad ANY week you're not flying into Heathrow.

    Is it still possible to travel on a boat across the Atlantic? Other than cruise ships or cargo-vessels.

    Cunard still does Transatlantic cruises.

    I see it takes six days on that cruise to make it across.

    I wonder how long it would take if you're really hauling ass on the water and trying to make good time?

    Can't go too fast or you'll get pulled over.

    Hey, I don't run the bags, I just load the planes!

    Though last night, I figured out the problem. Dyslexia. I had 25 Salt Lake City (SLC) bags for my Santiago, Chile (SCL) flight.

    I'm looking forward to the next ice age, so I can drive from New York to Paris via the Alaska land bridge.

    Damned global warming.

    Check out the plans for the Bering Sea Tunnel. It's been an idea that's been around for a long time that I could see happening at some point in the future. It'd be about twice as long as the Chunnel between England and France.

    I just read that Aloha Airlines is going out of business.

    For people fortunate enough to have been to Hawaii more than once (four times :p), it was a nice airline and, just as important, another option to help keep prices down. Plus they had smokin'-hot flight attendants.

    It's too bad.

    Too many people catch mystery bugs on cruises these days. I believe I'd be more comfortable on the Leaky Tiki — or, for that matter, on the Kon-Tiki.
