airplane vintage photo quote

Summer travels are underway and long awaited trips and vacation days are being used. For me, vacation days are being used to see family. Gone are the days when families lived close to each other; now we use “face time” apps and email to substitute for a healthy hug and good morning smile.

As I sat in the over-packed gate at the airport, I looked around at all of the people. So many faces, hair colors, body types, dressing styles, and attitudes filled the lounge waiting to depart. In true ego fashion, we look at others and judge them, and ourselves, on an invisible sliding scale of who looks better and who is so striking that all eyes are drawn to the beautiful people.

Each plane ride is at least 140 – 150 people drawn together in a fairly small space. While people filled the aisles and looked for comfortable seats, again, I looked at the variety of faces and people as they filed onboard.
Yet each of us shares so many of the same ideals: we want to be loved, respected, admired, sexy and attractive. We want someone, or many people, to look at us and see how special we are and be drawn to our best selves.

Psychological studies show it takes 7 seconds to make a first impression. Will people look to my hair, clothing, makeup, or smile? Will they sum me up by my weight or style of shoes?

So little time to show who I am and my dreams are all up in the air.

Airports are perhaps the least jolly of locales during the holiday season, generally filled with disgruntled people facing delays, lost luggage and other mishaps. But, thanks to WestJet, one gaggle of weary travelers was treated to a Christmas miracle that turned an airport into Santa’s workshop.

The Canadian airline, with the help of a virtual and tech-savvy Santa Claus, learned what passengers at the Toronto and Hamilton International Airports — who were waiting to board flights to Calgary — had on their Christmas wishlists this year. Once everyone boarded their planes, the WestJet team also took off — on shopping sprees, that is.
