Rolling Stones plane in JFK Terminal 4


That’s not a mock-up of just any airplane there in Terminal 4 at JFK International Airport.

It’s an “experience” Jose Cuervo had Air Hollywood put together to commemorate the legendary 1972 Rolling Stones tour (dubbed the Tequila Sunrise Tour) and give travelers a mild version of the tour’s party plane experience.

The pop-up plane is in the retail lounge of Concourse A at JFK Terminal 4 through December 30 and Jose Cuervo will be offering tequila sampling Monday through Saturday, 2:30 – 8:00pm.

Surprise upgrades at Denver International Airport

Denver International Airport is celebrating its 20th year with all manner of events and festivities.

Right now, it’s 20 days of “upgrades” for passengers, starting with one of my favorite foods: coffee

Airport officials says it just gets better from here, so if you’re traveling through Denver International Airport in the next few weeks, keep an eye out of the “upgraders.”
