A new class of airline seating

Delta’s entry into the growing mid priced Economy Comfort” class.

On June first, Delta will initiate a new class called Economy Comfort. These seats will have an additional four inches of legroom, some free booze, priority boarding, free HBO programming on the seatback TVs, and about 50 percent greater angle recline. Initially, they’ll be available on select long-haul intercontinental routes.

Beginning May 9th, Delta joined other carriers in offering a middle class of service. When you book an economy ticket, and one of these seats is available, you may upgrade, for a fee. Prices will vary, but, you can expect about an $ 80 fee (+/-) for a one-way East Coast to Europe flight.

These seats may be offered as “free upgrades” to members of their frequent flier Diamond and Platinum Medallion clients.

Find full details on Economy Comfort on Delta's site.

Poor Mexico. The country is almost three times the size of Texas, but given the bad press, you'd think you're guaranteed to get caught in drug cartel crossfire just about anywhere~

Cabo San Lucas; Mexico, California, or both?

You'll have to forgive me if I sound exited. This place is great. The stores carry the same merchandise and food as we have up here, and yet, it's uniquely Mexican in it's own way. You can find anything from Ultra Luxurious to 5 star to budget accommodations. It can be "party central" while at the same time, just being a sleepy little Mexican (or anywhere else for that matter) village.

The Corridor seems like one giant golf course with resorts sprinkled throughout. At the other end of the "Corridor" you'll find San Jose de Los Cabos. It's almost the complete opposite. Evening art shows, old colonial architecture, peaceful and quiet.

Whether you want to fish, shoot pool, swim, or just watch the whales, there is plenty to do. Of course, if you just want to veg, pick the right place and you are set! A cold drink in one hand, a guide book in the other, and scenery you have to see to believe.

I'll be back. This place is great! Cabo San Lucas!

Ichcabal an excuse to visit Laguna Bacalar

Rumor has it, Ichcabal, may open to the touring public in late 2010. For those of you who are not familiar with Ichcabal, it's in the vicinity of Chetumal and the Laguna Bacalar. I never pass up a chance to visit Bacalar. It's spectacular! Even the Maya thought so! Enough of that. Ichcabal is a large site, well preserved, and I hear, not yet looted. Got to go and see this place. Anyone else want to go?
