Food: Would cavemen enjoy in-flight meals?

On your next flight, would you enjoy a dinner of roast dinosaur? There are several scientific studies going on that examine the diet of Stone Age humans. The rumor is that cruise lines, airlines and hotel chains are interested in serving foods that include more natural and healthy ingredients.

Actually, just kidding about dinosaur on the menu. If you ever stayed awake in history class, you’d know those beasts were gone from the earth several million years before man arrived. However, the cavemen's simple diet, primarily of meats, is considered healthy for today’s humans by some nutrition experts. Just don’t try convincing a vegan of that.

Stone Age people were hunter-gathers who found food, primarily animals, within short distances of where they lived. They did eat some wild grasses and beans, but researchers claim vitamin-rich liver, kidneys and brains were their favorites. By the way, have those researchers considered that cavemen died at 30 of old age?

Boo, Hoo, JetBlue To Take More $$$ Out Of You! PDF Print E-mail

Tearful customers may pose a question like the little boy’s to the baseball player back in the 1920s, “Say, it ain’t true, JetBlue!” Unfortunately, it’s true. The airline will squeeze more in fares, while at the same time squeeze passengers into less seating space in the JetBlue yonder.

JetBlue announced it will create three ticket classes in 2015, and only the top two will allow one free checked bag. Those in the cheap seats will  pay to check their bags, as well as fly in ever-decreasing seat sizes.

JetBlue expects that the new fare classes and bag fees will bring in more than $200 million annually in operating income, and the extra seats will raise another $100 million. Looks like JetBlue execs and investors will enjoy a very happy and prosperous holiday season and beyond.
