Johnny Jet

Episode 1701

Johnny Jet joins Leo to talk about how everything is opening up now, even in Vegas, where the casinos are all open. They are limiting the number of players at every table, but Johnny says that guests are not wearing masks, even though the employees are. Passengers traveling are also acting as the crisis has passed. Some airlines are enforcing social distancing guidelines and some aren't. The result is this week was the largest spike so far. American Airlines has double miles for tickets bought by Advantage members through September 30th. But Johnny says he's not taking the risk.

How clean are airplane seats? That's where Seat Sitters come in. They are disposable seat covers that are easy to pack or carry with you. Great to use on airplanes, at movie theaters, special events, or anywhere where you want to be sure you're sitting on a clean seat. The company says they're perfect for cold, flu and allergy season and make an excellent guard against contact with peanut and food allergens. The kit includes a disposable tray table cover (but there's no way to secure it to the tray on an airplane), two sanitary wipes and one allergy mask.

spAIRtray says it's the world's first window shelf for extra room on most commercial aircraft window seats. Using it is easy. Just unfold it, insert one end of the back plate low in the alignment channel for the window’s sun visor and slide the other end into the channel on the other side of the window. Adjust to level out the tray and then you'll have some extra space for your phone, eyeglasses, snack, etc. The company says you can even hang a jacket on it.
