It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

ACJ – Jazz It Up!

August 27th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Air Canada JazzYes, I’m an avid jazz enthusiast, but this post is not about jazz; nor is it about jazzing anything up.  Instead it’s about the Canadian airline called none other than Air Canada Jazz or ACJ.  This industrious thinking company has come up with a marvelous idea for saving fuel costs!  What is it?  Why, taking out all the life jackets from their airplanes, of course!   Afterall, if we don’t need our luggage, why should we need life jackets!?  Hmm, does that also include the life jackets for the pilot, the co-pilot and the hostesses?  Somehow I doubt it!

New Means of Transportation
Okay, so maybe they don’t fly across the ocean….that in itself is a scary thought (!), but I wouldn’t want to be caught without a life jacket over the Great Lakes either, which they do fly over.

What worries me is the airline industry more than any other is like a bunch of sheep.  When one company does something, you can bet your bottom dollar that all the other companies will follow suit!  Which leads me to the scary question, what next?!Travel Woes 

If they can remove the lifejackets now, then by next year they’ll take out the windows and probably do away with the seats and it’ll be standing room only with straps hanging down to keep people from jostling into one another!

Cattle car in the air; the future means of air travel!Maya Muses:  I can see it now!  Sort of like a cattle car in the air!  Better start practicing your “Moo-o-o-s!!!

    It’s crazy! I remember when I first started flying to different countries back in the early 70’s, they use to serve you champagne! And I’m not talking about 1st class!!! Icelandic Air was fantastic for serving excellent meals, free wine and champagne, and by the time you got to Iceland, you would be totally drunk! It was great! Haha!!! Ah, those were the days!

    Yeah…I remember that kind of flights too….
    Those were the days indeed!
    Now we are packed as sardines!
    And have to pay for everything!

    I rather saw that they found out a” cleaner “way to fly…..

    Well!!! I heard that starting January some airline compagnies will ask you to go to the bathroom just before boarding. They estimate that they can save $1 million a year on plane fuel. I think it’s a great idea. But listen to this! In 2010 the clothes you wear should not weigh over a pound and you’ll have go to get your haircut before boarding. (Brasilian bikini waxes are highly recommanded!) I won’t be surprised to see nudist fly. Honestly I can’t wait to go back on vacation!!!
