If you want a laugh, SkyHighairlines.com
is just a hoot and a half. With revolving slogans like, "Flying more. Caring less," "The relentless pursuit of adequacy," and "You all look like ants from here," this spoof of an airline site just cracked me up. It even has a "Book a Flight" page, where you can book a fake flight from Brainerd, Minn., to Red Oak, Iowa, with your choice of bench or cargo seats, for just $4,454.59. Among the tips offered: "There’s a pretty good chance you’ll miss some connecting flights. Our advice is to either speedwalk or slip one of those electric cart drivers a five-spot and tell him to floor it. Best of luck."
I have no idea who’s behind this one—check out the Letter from the Chairman
Howard Barium, who can’t possibly be a real person, can he?--but it does have a lot of links to Alaska Airlines
as an alternative to the joys of flying pseudo-airline SkyHigh. Which makes me wonder if this is actually one of the cleverest airline marketing ploys I’ve ever seen on Alaska Air’s part. If anyone knows for sure, please let me know.
