Story Links From My Other Writing Jobs

While post one isn’t a story I wrote for AirwaysNews.com, our #FlashbackFriday feature is one of my favorites. Correspondent Luis Linares did this great post — complete with wonderful photos — celebrating the 15th anniversary of JetBlue.

And speaking of JetBlue, every year for the past four years, I have been one of three judges – along with Henry Harteveldt and Brett Snyder — of the airline’s annual anniversary cake decorating contest. JetBlue’s Blue Tails blog reports on this year’s winner and runner-ups.

After a recent United Airlines fare glitch that posted prices as low as $50 roundtrip (which were not honored), my friends were asking me how they could score these deals in the future. It became a column for the Travel section at About.com.

We’ll end this with this little exchange on Facebook. Read my original post on great airport restaurants here. And read my review of One Flew South here. Enjoy!

Yesterday, I received a timeline request on my Facebook page from friend John-John Williams IV, the amazing fashion reporter for the Baltimore Sun and one of THE best cooks on the planet. He posted a link to a story at GQ.com with a simple question: “Benet Wilson, do you agree with this?”

My answer was simple: “Yes. 100 percent. I’ve eaten at 8 of the 10 restaurants.” I’ve not been to Ink Sack at LAX or Shoyu at MSP.

The list included favorites including Salt Lick Barbecue (just as good as the off-site branch), Tortas Fronteras (I’ve booked myself through Chicago O’Hare to eat there, and Vino Volo (a favorite since they opened at BWI in 2007).  So take a look at the story and let me know which ones should have been included.
