With all the travel I do, sometimes by the time that I get on the plane and climb into my seat, all I ever want to do is just close my eyes and pass out. Obviously this is easier said than done most days. Between passengers boarding and shuffling about and cabin crew announcements, relaxing can be difficult on a plane, and especially during a long-haul flight. People have different strategies – for some it’s a strong inflight cocktail, for others, it’s a Xanax or perhaps a nice book…Puddy from Seinfeld preferred to just stare at the back of the headrest, so to each his own I guess.
I have written in the past how much there is one product that I travel with wherever I go: the Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones. They provide me with a sense of calm in what can be an otherwise crazy environment. American Airlines provides these to their business and first class cabins on many flights, and if for some reason I don’t have my trusty pair with me, I always gladly accept the pair the flight crew hands out for use.
Today, I would like to give away a pair to a reader who can tell me how they relax the best on a flight. To enter, comment on this post or on our Facebook page how you like to relax. Is it by taking a nap, having a drink, or maybe you catch up on the goings on of the Kardashians in your favorite tabloid? Whatever it is, enter by 5pm ET on Monday, April 14 to be eligible. You can only enter once per medium. The winner will be chosen at random and announced next week.
And the Winners of Last Week’s Prize of Two Tickets to the New SPG Hear The Music Series Is…
Last week we discussed the just-announced Starwood Preferred Guest Hear The Music, See The World Promotion which pairs unique musical experiences with each of the Starwood Hotel Group brands, and we asked our readers what their favorite Starwood property is.
TPG reader HBahorich said: “I know it’s not the most exciting location in the entire world, but my favorite SPG location is the Westin in downtown St. Louis. I have stayed there multiple times for birthdays and wedding celebrations. Perfect location for some St. Louis baseball, friendliest staff ever, and softest pillows in the world. I know live so close to this Westin (years later after staying there) that I utilize their gym on a weekly basis, separately owned, but such a great partnership!”
We loved your answer, and we hope you’ll continue your love affair with the Westin St. Louis and your upcoming concert with the Hear The Music, See The World promotion!
