How Innovative is the Best Price Guarantee?

Hello IGWers,

I was shopping around for a flight yesterday and I came across another gem of the airline industry. If you weren’t already less than excited about the lack of innovation for the customers, it gets worse. The best price guarantee is one of those hidden nuggets about the airline industry. Some airlines will take the lowest commercial price. I’m not complaining about receiving lower airfares, I’m all for that. I just think the only airline commercial I ever see is something generic like “Fly the friendly skies.” Man, that is pathetic. You have real cost savings and you are advertising friendly skies. Airlines, how often are their unfriendly skies really? Every time that happens its 9 hours in the terminal anyways.

Please airlines for the sake of all parties involved. Advertise the best price guarantee. Take off the surcharge on the bags, speed up the check-in line, don’t make me get a cavity search after going to Starbucks, give me a can of soda for under $3.00 and speed up the seat belt routine.

Well, I guess I joined the laundry list of people who have ranted against the airlines.

To airline innovation gone right!



Naked Sports

Hello IGWers,

I was reading this morning about a naked soccer match that took place between Germany and Austria. Now this is the first time I have heard of naked soccer. I am not a nudist and naked sports are pretty scary to me. Following is a list of the least exciting naked sports.

1. Equestrian- Riding horseback naked is not such a great idea

2. Naked baseball- Again, getting a ball thrown at you 90mph doesn’t sound great.

3. Lacrosse- Why? These athletes wear helmets and pads for good reason.

4. Fishing- Hooks are sharp enough said.

5. Poker- At your home maybe, but at a casino this won’t fly.

6. Tennis- This is actually done somewhat, but it sounds foolish.

7. Raquetball- Have you ever been hit by a racquetball?

8. Curling- No one enjoys getting undressed on ice.

9. Ice skating- Going the same way as curling. No one pulls a triple axle in their birthday suit.

10. Golf- Not that you can’t but the beer cart lady may or may not stop depending on what she sees.

To more horrible naked sports!
