Red Eye Scenery

Sooo I realize it’s not Tuesday anymore but when I saw what Life With My 3 Boybarians was giving away this week on Sweet Shot Tuesdays, I just HAD to join in for the chance to win Berry Sweet Designs’ Lightroom presets!  I need all the photo editing help I can get, no joke.

Sweet Shot Day

As you know, last Sunday I attended my friend’s wedding in California.  It was a beautiful event with navy and peach details, nice weather, great speeches, and delicious food.  It might take me awhile to edit (very minimally) all the photos and get them posted but I wanted to share one photo I took on the red eye flight back to Kansas City on Sunday night / Monday morning.

After a few hours of on and off sleeping, I woke up around 4:18AM to find this beautiful sight outside my window.  It was the nighttime meeting up with the daytime… a beautiful sunrise horizon with the moon hovering over the set.  And if you’ll notice at the end of the wing, it’s Larry the Lynx!  Here’s a few stats about him taken from Frontier Airlines website:

  • Favorite Movie: Airplane
  • Quote: “It is an honor to be Frontier’s Spokesman… or perhaps I should say Spokescat.”
  • Favorite Pastimes: Having his whiskers trimmed, cat napping on the tarmac, really big balls of yarn
  • Pet Peeves: Lost luggage, hairballs, dirty litter boxes

I’m not a fan of lost luggage either, Larry!  Luckily, our plane side checked luggage was not lost, yay!  We had booked a Midwest Airlines flight but since they were partners with Frontier Airlines, I got to fly my first Frontier Airlines flight ever… and lucky for me, they had Midwest’s freshly baked cookies.  I’m typically a Southwest (no baggage fees, credit & no charge for cancelled flights, easiest to earn free flights) or Delta (Biscoff cookies and b/c I have status already) gal but I do LOVE those Midwest chocolate chip cookies, YUM!  So I totally threw out a whole bunch of airline names here, so just as a disclaimer, no , I’m not affiliated with or marketing for them haha.

What’s your favorite airline and why?

    I’m glad everything was okay.

    I can’t pick an airlines ’cause I’ve only been in a plane once, being a kid.
    One of the things I have more fear of the planes (besides being in the middle of the ocean) is the lost luggage!

    Great photo! Who knew they even had a lynx as their mascot? How random!

    You got it right, Midwest is by far the best!

    That’s such a cool photo! Love how the window frames the picture. I’ve never heard of Frontier Airlines. Cool!

    hmm…so i’ve only ever flew on nwa/delta my whole life. loved the free tickets from mileage i accumulate flying to china. however, since the merger, what previously qualified me for a free ticket to china, now is only worth half its value, makes me no longer a happy customer.

    the one other airline i’ve flown is airtran, which surprisingly has very cushy seats and fast service – nyc in one hour! but i know other peeps have had horrible experiences with them, so i’m not willing to buy stocks in them just yet.

    will have to see what pops up when i next search for flights to atlanta in oct 🙂

    That is one awesome photo! I guess my favorite airline is jetblue, because they’re like how southwest used to be! (hope my sis doesn’t read this, she works for delta, ha ha!)

    Virgin America all the way. It flies out of Terminal 2 in SD which isn’t busy at all. Love the comfy leather seats, personal TV with on demand tv, movies, games, chat, music, wifi, power outlets, cool mood lighting, friendly staff (who are always good looking, btw, lol) flights are even cheaper than Southwest (blech) and they’re newer planes. 🙂

    I gotta stick up for (pre-merger) Continental, my hometown airline. They still serve food! I think they’re better than all the other legacy airlines, but I’m sure they don’t compare to some of the international ones.

    Thanks for adding me to your blog roll, I did the same with your blog! I’m definitely a Southwest lady, myself.

    i love the photo that you got from your seat!
    i’m usually asleep with the cover pulled down over the window, so i never get photos of that kind of stuff lol.

    the stats on larry the lynx were my favorite! ha. cute.

    not sure about a favorite airline, as i’ve only used a few. i like southwest too, and american airlines was okay (but the plane was sooo cold! and they only feed you on longer flights :P).

    so cool that you got a hat too! i’m not a hat-wearer either, but i’m turning into one ;D i saw so many cute hats at target that i want to buy too! ahhhh.

    what an amazing photo! awesome sweet shot tuesday! my favorite airline would have to be southwest because of the no baggage fee but unfortunantly they don’t fly out or into charlotte.

    love the photo… especially with that beautiful moon… my fave airline is British Airlines because i like those snooty flight attendants with the nice british accent and their comfy seats

  12. June 30, 2010 / 11:33 pm

    Southwest hands down! don’t pay for luggage, can change tickets, nice employees ….
