As the pandemic drags on, we at Cranky Flier and Cranky Concierge have been churning out ideas about ways to raise revenue until travel returns. We have plenty of ideas in the hopper, and some of them might actually be good. I’m taking this Wednesday to tell you about two of them — Cranky Daily and new Cranky Flier merchandise — with the hope that you’ll see fit to take advantage of one of these two offers.
Introducing Cranky Daily
Back in March, we rolled out the Cranky Coronavirus Daily Update. All it took was a minimum $25 contribution and we’d deliver the coronavirus news to you. With more than 250 subscribers this has done well, and we know there’s room to grow more. So I’m proud to announce the introduction of:
At the end of every workday, Monday through Friday, pour a stiff drink and get a quick rundown of the day’s news. You can expect:
- Brief, witty rundowns of the top five stories of the day as picked by our crack editorial team/dartboard
- Airline Potpourri with quick links to other stories we found interesting
- Our famous Moment of Levity to help put a smile on your face
All this can be yours for a mere $9 per month. If you have questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise:
Cranky Flier T-Shirts and Mugs
You’ve asked for it, and now it’s here. We have Cranky Flier t-shirts and mugs. But this isn’t just any ordinary merchandise with a plain old logo slapped on it.
If you’re feeling Cranky, you can show your love for the Cranky Jackass. If only we had the rights, I’d love to offer an airline-specific version of these, but you’ll just have to tape on your own decal.
Or if you’d rather something a little more pratical, you can help Japanese visitors avoid Godzilla with this handy map.
Or if you prefer mugs, we have them in both prints:
Thanks to everyone who has supported us so far. We’ll keep rolling out ideas. If you have any, email me at email@example.com. We’re game for nearly anything.
