Down the hatch. Jonathan Spira sees Disney’s Fantasia live, performed by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra. Upon entry into the theater, everybody must take a serving of LSD to accurately envision the dancing mops and hippo ballerinas.
Invisibility suits: on. Paul Riegler dines on Southern fare at Burnside Biscuit in Astoria, Queens. The food was fine, but the service was spottier than the fire department’s Dalmatian mascot.
It’s on us. KLM is introducing a “layover with a local program,” allowing travelers to spend at least six hours in Amsterdam to grab a drink with a local resident. KLM will pay for the cost of a train ticket into the city and the first round of drinks at a bar, plus any iMacs or MacBooks you want to pick up at the local Apple store.
Short and sweet. This week, congress rejected a bill to increase legroom on U.S. aircraft. Instead, Congress will be hiring surgeons to make prospective flyers shorter, so they can fit into the already existing aircraft with ease.
Save the hipsters. Starbucks’ loyalty program will be switching over to a revenue-based system and will adopt a new name. The coffee chain announced that it wasn’t making enough from its $8 lattes and needed to cut back on freebies in order to save cash.
Time saved. Dallas Fort Worth introduced the world’s first airport Apple Watch App. Good news, you can now leave for your flight about 18 seconds later than planned if you take advantage of the time you’ll save by not having to take out your phone to check on your flight status.
