This couple just threw their wedding on a Southwest flight – 

A high-flying couple tied the knot on a Southwest flight Sunday night in front of fellow passengers, who participated in the crowdsourced ceremony.

Renee and Michael (whose last names are unknown) boarded a flight from Las Vegas to Baltimore decked in wedding attire — she wearing a white gown with a sparkly belt and a veil, and he a tux. With 45 minutes remaining in the five-hour trip, the couple rose from their seats and headed toward opposite ends of the plane. LINK

A stellar idea! Think about it, your plane ticket covers the venue, no need to print invitations since everyone has a boarding pass, and to top it off Southwest hands out drinks, peanuts and pretzels! I wonder if Renee and Michael know it’s a 15-minute bus ride to the rental car lot.

1 injured after van drives off MIA parking garage – 

MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, FLA. (WSVN) – Rescue crews took the driver of an American Airlines van to the hospital after, police said, he drove off the parking garage at Miami International Airport, Friday morning. According to Miami-Dade Police, the veteran employee was driving a company vehicle when he crashed through the wall of the fourth floor and plummeted to the concrete below, just after 8:15 a.m. LINK

I spent several years driving in Miami’s morning rush hour. However, I never contemplated a fourth-floor noise dive as a way of avoiding traffic. Thankfully no one was hurt, no one except the van.

Spirit Airlines Flight Attendant Teaches Delayed Passengers How to Use the Lavatory

Passengers on a delayed Spirit Airlines flight departing Chicago O’Hare last month — sitting on the ground with inoperative air conditioning, presumably no working auxiliary power unit, “babies are crying, everyone is moody” — were treated to a flight attendant dropping some serious life advice. He tells passengers that some of them will need to flush toilet in the lavatory twice. He tells them to be considerate of nearby passengers trying to sleep so to close the lav door quietly. And he asks passengers to share their codine, lithium, quaaludes, and other drugs with their seat opponent — but if it’s a child sitting next to them “do a moral inventory, or just do like my mom used to, she broke it in half and gave it to me.” LINK

I love flight attendants that add humor to my day. Seriously there are only so many times that I can hear, “This will be a completely full flight”. I get it I’m either flying out of or into Orlando, I know it’s going to be full. I haven’t heard the word Quaalude since 1986. Of course, there’s a video LINK

Arriving flight greeted by gator crossing runway at Orlando International Airport

Passengers on a flight from Baltimore got an only-in-Florida greeting at Orlando International Airport early Monday when an alligator was spotted lumbering across the runway. According to passenger Anthony Velardi, the gator’s trek prompted an in-flight announcement from the pilot on the Spirit Airlines flight, which landed about 8:30 a.m., informing those on the plane that they’d have to wait for the critter to finish its crossing. LINK

Why did the gator cross the runway? For those Baltimore passengers, WTF – Welcome To Florida. Besides hitting a gator with an airplane, just imagine the paperwork.

Man Arrested Trying to Bring Loaded Gun Through Security at Baltimore Airport

A would-be traveler was handcuffed after his .40 caliber handgun loaded with 12 bullets was pulled out of his carry-on bag as it went through a TSA checkpoint X-ray machine at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI).Just 2 days prior, another man attempted to get past security with a gun. He too was stopped and arrested. LINK

These “Someone tried to take a firearm through TSA” always make me scratch my head in search of an explanation. So you forget that you have a gun in your carry-on so how in the hell are you going to remember that you have a gun when you need it? I’m a firearm supporter so no need to send me those 2nd Admenment e-mails!

Officials explain how a man ran onto a tarmac at Atlanta’s airport

ATLANTA — Officials provided updates on Wednesday morning after a man ran onto a tarmac at the airport wearing only his underwear Tuesday.
Major Timothy Peek who is a commander with Atlanta Police explained how a man was able to jump a fence and run onto a tarmac half naked during a press conference on Wednesday.
Maj. Peek says it is still unknown what prompted 19-year-old Jhryin Jones to jump the airport fence and run onto a tarmac, “What can stop a person from jumping a fence, I don’t know to be honest with you.” LINK

What can stop a person from jumping a fence, I don’t know to be honest with you.” This is easy… taller fences! Half naked at the airport is no better than completely naked at the airport.
