No Time for Love, Dr Jones

Airplane Porn, America West

It’s a busy day today and though I can’t wait to comment on the newly agreed upon Open Skies agreement between the US and the European Union, it’ll have to way until tomorrow. So for now, I’ll leave you with some good ole’ airline porn, video style.

What do you get when you combine schmaltzy songs and cheesy powerpoint slide transitions? A rockin’ tribute video, of course. This one is nearly 20 minutes long, and it’s basically a bunch of photos looking back on the history of America West. Unless you have a strange yearning for Dolly Parton’s version of “I Will Always Love You” or “The Morning After” by Maureen McGovern, let me suggest you turn the sound all the way down.

  1. That was the ill-fated international expansion that came just before bankruptcy in the early 90’s (go figure). The planes went from Phoenix and Vegas to Honolulu and then on to Nagoya, Japan. Needless to say, the route was a bloodbath and the authority was sold to Northwest. They also flew the 747s to JFK instead of leaving them on the ground during layovers. I believe the late night flight from LAS to PHX, the employee shuttle, was also on a 747. That would have been a fun one.
