Blogging while flying at 503mph & altitude 39772 ft

flying737 Winglet

I started writing this blog entry on June 2nd, 9am MST at a speed of 503 miles per hour & altitude 39772 ft. on board a beautifully leather-seated and satellite-TV equipped WestJet 737 with Blended Winglet Technology and a giant ad.

I have never blogged on an airplane before and I am missing my internet connections very much. For example, I have to defer finding some nice Creative Common flickr photos to link to. I can’t use Wikipedia to research on topics and possibly link to them in my post. And I have no way of publishing this entry the minute I finish writing it. I will have to wait till I have internet connections again, which will likely be later this evening.

Now, I just came up with a new idea to try in this blog. I will tell you more about it in a future entry.

    Thanks from WestJet for the nice words about our planes. I’m glad you enjoyed your flight. Personally, I always get a kick out of the real-time display of the speed and altitude. Plus, when you are sitting in a window seat, the map is great for showing you what you are over top of.

    Hello Dave,

    Good to see WestJet is paying attention to blog comments about the company. When I see great services and great people, it is my pleasure to talk about WestJet. Now, I just hope you and your company are taking negative comments about WestJet equally seriously as negative comments can be used to improve services.

    Cheers,
    Kempton
