Air traveler wakes up in hangar

10 04 2010

A British professor had to go to Vancouver for an important conference. That is a long flight( I know). It takes 22 hours. The man did everything to stay awake for the transfer at Heathrow but after take-off there he fell in a deep sleep and get up until a technician woke him 1.5 hours after his flight landed in a hangar in Vancouver. The crew apologized and said they were too busy getting people with wheel chairs of the plane. Lame excuse(probably BA). I have unfortunately never been able to sleep even a second on intercontinental flight even if it means being up for over 40 hours so I cannot really relate to the poor guy. I wish I was him sometimes, haha.

British Airways strike

27 03 2010

The losers of BA have to fuck up everyone’s travel for yet another time. At midnight they will start their strike for another 4 days, after already having been on strike last week for 3 days. The personnel wants more money even though I read they already got more than any other company. My experiences with BA have been so bad, twice I had to wait at Heathrow for a full day to get from London to Amsterdam(40 min). Last year my luggage was lost for 2 weeks. The service is horrible, even in the business class lounge the people(especially the women) are rude and fugly. I try to avoid them like the plague and recommend others the same thing. If you fly from the U.S to Amsterdam on American just go to Brussels instead and then take the train. It is quicker, much cheaper and a lot less hassle.

Gossip News

17 01 2010

It was not a week with a lot of gossip/entertainment news but in the end of it some interesting things came up anyway.

Lady Gaga cancelled concerts this weekend over extreme exhaustion and dehydration. She performed with flu, cold and strep throat before, but this was really too much. She even had heart irregularity because of it. I had the same this summer because of exhaustion and it is super scary. Get well soon Gaga!!

First the metamorphosis of Heidi Montag, 23-year-old and star of The Hills. She had 10 procedures in a day including a nose-job, chin implants, new tits, brow lift and more. She looks better then before but also 1o years older. But the huge Leno chin is gone as well as the huge nose so it was probably all worth it.

Susan Boyle had another meltdown at Heathrow. She started using a mop as a microphone and later used it to clean other people’s shoes, she then ran to terminal 5 while screaming; “I’ve escaped”. It was chaos from the moment she arrived being super agitated and it ended with officials sedating her. Poor woman.

And Lady Elton might become the new Simon Cowell on American Idol, now Simon has told media he is not gonna be a judge anymore on AI, but only on the X-Factor. I bet Elton could be just as mean and bitchy and would be a great judge!
