Tidbits for travelers: contests, diaper cream and commercials

unique retreat room

Yesterday, I posted a version of my current USAToday.com column about some new airport amenities you might be seeing at an airport near you.  Things like short-stay sleep/work rooms, cigar lounges and machines that dispense sports apparel.

Here’s one more amenity to add to the list: a Nanny Caddy.

These are vending machines filled with diapers, formula, pacifiers, bottles and other doodads parents might need when they’re on the road with a baby.  Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) has two of these machines  – Terminal B (Gate B5) and Terminal C (Gate C19) – and I bet we’ll see more of these popping up at other airports soon.

File under: you can’t win if you don’t play.

Fancy a trip to Australia? Then be sure to enter the Qantas 90th Anniversary Sweepstakes before October 20th.

First prize: 2 business class tickets from the US to Sydney, Australia. (Leaving by November 5, 2010), four nights in a swanky hotel and, get this, a flight around Sydney on John Travolta’s very own B707 airplane – with John Travolta as your pilot!

And, in keeping with my recent post about Air New Zealand’s zany, saucy commercials starring Rico, a sexy, silly, furry brown thing, here’s s sample from JetBlue’s latest campaign.
