Episode 1620

Johnny Jet's second child came this week. Her name is Olivia Grace, and she came three weeks early. Johnny was in Las Vegas, at the time, but was able to get to the airport via an Uber and fly out within minutes. He made it in time for the delivery as well. Very exciting times. It was like a movie, with the Uber driver picking him up and weaving in and out of traffic to get to the airport, and he flew out within the hour.

App of the week - Shaka Guide. There are four different narrated tours for driving around Hawaii.  Another version - the GPSy Guide. iOS and Android. $3.99-9.99, all over the US.

A great site for cheap flights is TravelGam. It shows the cheapest weekend to visit in an eight-month period. He's not a fan of the booking sites they partner with, though, so go straight to the airline or another booking site like Travelocity, Kayak, or Expedia to actually book your flight. If travelling to NY, there is a website that shows all the New York construction in all five boroughs. Check it out here - https://www.johnnyjet.com/nyc-construction-project-map.

Leo tells Johnny Jet that he's impressed with just how good cruising is now thanks to technology. The Wi-Fi has gotten much faster and the pay service is getting more affordable. $30 for three hours, which you can stretch out by logging off when you're done and stopping the clock. Johnny Jet says that the new ships are smaller in space, because of all the technology. If you want space, you are better off cruising on the older ships.
