If all airplanes boarded like this, boarding would take half the time

This Friday, me and the Mrs. are flying out to LA to see my newborn nephew, and while I like air travel, boarding is always a huge pain in the ass. But astrophysicist Dr. Jason Steffen figured out a better way. By seating people first one side of the plane, then the other and back and forth like that, you can almost completely eliminate the gridlock of two fat guys trying to squeeze together to put luggage in the overhead at the same time.

Nightmare fuel: Join the Mile High Club with Richard Simmons

New Zealand Air recently created a brand new safety lecture video for all of their flights that’s a little different than the normal flight attendent safety dance. I just noticed that I don’t think Richard Simmons has any genitals. How else can he wear shorts that small whilst dancing around and never have a ball sack flop out?

Great food is still being served on airlines… just not domestic (American) flights

If you’re on a flight across the US where food is served, you’ll notice that the food is utter shit. Peter Greenberg explores how some of the best food is still served on airlines, just on international flights, usually by non-American airlines.
