Remember the “good ‘ol days” … when airlines actually served hot meals instead of peanuts … when your luggage didn’t require a ticket of its own … when inflight movies were simply part of the deal?
Times change and not necessarily for the better.
Air travel has been more than stressful since Sept. 11, 2001, and the lack of hospitality on flights has made it ever more undesirable. It’s a necessary evil. If you want to get to faraway destinations in a timely fashion then flights are the best way to do it.
However, if you live in close proximity to Nashville, Atlanta or Cincinnati you can get to a modicum of old school air travel with Sunwing Airline flights to three cities in the Caribbean and Mexico.
Elite service on a Sunwing flight includes at no extra cost “Bon Voyage” glass of champagne, hot towel meal or hot snacks, wine with meals, select snacks, inflight first run movies, headsets, non-alcoholic beverages, checked baggage up to 44 pounds per person, kids backpacks with games and toys.
Upgrade to Elite Plus for $40 more each way and get extra leg room seats, advance seat selections, 22 pounds extra checked baggage and priority check-in and boarding.
Here’s where you can fly with Sunwing:
Nashville departures: Cancun, Mexico on Saturdays and Montego Bay, Jamaica on Sundays.
Atlanta departures: Cancun on Fridays & Mondays and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic on Saturdays.
Cincinnati departures: Cancun on Sundays, Punta Cana on Fridays and Montego Bay on Saturdays.
Champagne flights are available through October 29, 2012.
