Now You Really Can Have Breakfast at Tiffany’s!

Tiffany’s has opened the Blue Box Cafe at their flagship store Fifth Avenue and 57th Street in New York City! When Holly Golightly, played by Audrey Hepburn, stepped out of a yellow cab and sauntered to the window of Tiffany and Company an iconic movie scene was created. Now you can live it by visiting the Cafe located on the fourth floor of the building. The “Breakfast at Tiffany” breakfast starting at $29. It comes with coffee or tea, followed by a croissant and seasonal fruit and rounded out with your choice of a buttermilk waffle, smoked salmon and bagel stack, truffle eggs, or avocado toast.

Two other ships will debut in 2021 and 2022. Not much is known about the destinations, but it will sail out of Miami.

Joon – The New Millennial Airline

On December 1 Air France launched Joon – the first airline that targets 18 to 35 year olds! It flies from Paris to cities within Europe as well as international destinations with fares starting at 49 euros. It’s colors are electric blue and white, and the flight attendants wear sportswear uniforms. There’s a YouJoon app to watch tv shows on your mobile device, and they have seat back screens for international flights. You can use your Air France app to manage your flight. I’m glad to see a new, fresh airline in the skies – even if I’m over 35!


Loose Change

Have you ever wondered what happens to that loose change you forgot to pick back up after going through TSA screening? TSA collects it and puts it into a special account to be used for improvements to civil aviation security. Last year they collected a whopping $868,000! Passengers at JFK were the most forgetful – their portion was $70,615!
