Free drinks. Room upgrades. Better restaurants. That’s what the travel industry thinks you want from your next travel experience.
—And your point is?
I hope it has room service.
“Yes, that looks fine, thank you. Oh, I have to CHOOSE?”

Here’s a little gorgeous morsel of writing via monsterbeard:
It was dark by the time I got off the freeway and headed north. The traffic was thick and in front of me was a Landcruiser with a for sale sign in the back window. The license plate said WNDRL5T, and it didn’t seem fair that they could be so cavalier about all the adventures they might be selling in that exchange. Wanderlust. And I tried to picture the places that car had been, the roads it has traveled and will travel when those new owners come around.

“Flight attendants on board a Cebu Pacific Airlines flight remixed Katy Perry and Lady Gaga in their unique presentation of their jet’s safety features:
Candice Iyog, vice President of Marketing at Cebu Pacific Airlines, said: “Cebu Pacific has always been known as a fun airline, we wanted to get the message across to our customers that flight safety doesn’t have to be boring.
“This was an experiment that we hope to repeat and also a chance to showcase the talent of some of our cabin crew staff.”
The performance took place while the plane was at cruising altitude, with the cabin crew giving a normal safety demonstration before take-off.”
