Johnny Jet

Johnny Jet is back home, which is a rarity for him. Sometimes, Johnny feels he's more at home at a hotel room than actually at home. Regarding the Malaysia Airlines shoot down, Johnny Jet says he gets asked often how come commercial airlines don't come with anti-missile technology like Air Force One? Johnny says it's pretty simple ... the cost. It costs millions to outfit plane for counter measures as it does for the plane itself. He also says that the FAA doesn't allow US planes to fly over war zones, but unfortunately the European Aviation Authorities did. Johnny has created a page for checking the routes through the Ukraine here.

IN other news, JetBlue now has automatic check in for passengers. Leo says what's the point of checkin anymore? Johnny says because if you check in, before going, you can grab better seats from cancellations. Start looking about 72 hours in advance even though you won't be able to check in until 24 hours before. But some will charge you, so wait until 24 hours before and you'll get your seat assignment for free.

KLM will offer customer service via Linked in, as well as their current offerings through Facebook and Twitter.
