Sweet Valentine’s Day Treats for Your Valentine Sweet

Sweet Valentine’s Day Treats for Your Valentine Sweet

How sweet it is to be loved by you! This is your pilot speaking.

Valentine’s Day is this weekend and for those of us on the tarmac, time might be limited to find that special someone a little treat. I’ve compiled a list of places in major airports around the U.S. where you can find something special if time is tight. I have a bit of a sweet tooth and have first hand experience at most of these places. If I missed a favorite spot of yours I apologies. The list below is meant to also showcase something only found at that airport. There are two exceptions in The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and Dylan’s Candy Bar which have franchises around the country. Rocky Mountain is your classic confectionery with treats for ever taste. Dylan’s offers a large selection of favorite brand name candies that you can 4314-Truffles36_79881_01v1Wmix and match as well as pre made gift boxes. A special note on Dylan’s: If you ever find yourself just east of Central Park in New York City you will find the flagship store that offers 4 stories of candy heaven. And if you happen to be flying internationally, don’t forget you can always find delicious limited edition Godiva Belgian chocolates at Duty Free Stores everywhere. Enjoy and safe travels as always!

Welcome aboard, FlyInStyle, from the cockpit.

This is your pilot speaking.

As I write this I’m on a flight to Houston. Don’t worry, I’m in the back with all the other passengers. I often ride in the back as I ‘deadhead’ to join the next flight where I will actually be part of the crew. Between my time as a crew member working, deadheading, and personal travel, it amazes me how often people make traveling more difficult than it has to be.

As a pilot for one of the worlds largest airlines I have the pleasure of adding some insight to the other side of aviation travel along with some tips and stories. I have a personal love for travel that goes beyond my career that has taken me to every continent except Antarctica. I have spent so much time in so many airports that they are second homes. There are few places I see the everyday person be less comfortable at, than stuck in a travel setting involving an airplane. It starts the moment you arrive at the airport. The stress level goes up as you stand in a check-in line or for security. Everyone feels rushed. Everyone wants to ‘get this over with as soon as possible. Questionable food that’s overpriced. Stores that try to draw you in right before your flight. Gate areas that are crowded and hectic. And you haven’t even boarded the massive metal beast that flies miles above the ground, near the speed of sound, that you have no control over!

It’s easlos-angeles-commercial-piloty to see how most people don’t love this portion of travel. It’s often said ‘it’s not the

destination, but the journey.’ I love what I get to do in flying an airplane, but I love even more the real comforts of home, or at least a decent hotel at an exciting destination. So unless you get to sit in my seat, I agree that it’s the destination that is the highlight of the trip.

You step on the curb and get ready for the miracle of flight. Here’s where FlyInStyle comes to your aid. What should you know to make things go smoother till you reach your destination? Where’s a good meal that won’t empty your wallet? What stores should I give the time of day? Where’s the free stuff that can make this experience more enjoyable? I, along with the others that make up the FlyInStyle family, are here to answer those very questions and so much more.

So please, sit back, relax, and enjoy your flight! Welcome aboard FlyInStyle!

Sincerely,

The Aviator
