This Week on BNET Travel (June 30 – July 3)

I know I mentioned it before, but I thought it worth mentioning again that I’m now the airline blogger for BNET. My posts on Cranky are primarily focused on the frequent (or not so frequent) flier, but over on BNET, I get into more on airline management. Since I know that the last thing you want is to have to check two different places to see what I’m writing about, I thought I’d do a couple things to make this easier to find my content.

First, I’ve started using Google site search. Now anytime you search for something on Cranky in the upper right hand corner search box, it will also return results from BNET if there’s a better match for what you’re looking for. Cool, huh?

Second, I’m going to start posting every Saturday a summary of the previous week’s posts in BNET. If you’re interested, head on over and check out the full posts. If not, well, no big deal. Since today is the 4th of July, I’m not posting a regular post today. So, I thought I’d kick off my first week of this effort by posting a day early. Usually, you’ll still see my regular number of weekly posts with this bonus summary on Saturdays.

    I guess that every news channel has to cope with a slow day and nothing on which to report to the viewers ? :)

    Gee Cranky,
    Now that you are bordering on uber famous and hanging out with Paris and the Olsen twins, will you continue to talk with us peons?

    Brian – Until Paris and the Olsen twins develop a love for spotting, I think everyone else is safe. Besides, good luck getting them to eat an In ‘n Out burger (or anything, for that matter).

    mmmmmmm, man do I crave an In ‘n Out burger. Nothing on the right coast compares.
