New Travel Statistics Released U.S. airline passengers last year arrived late to their destinations and lost their luggage more often than passengers in previous years, yet complained less frequently, according to statistics released last Friday by the U.S. Department of Air Transportation. According to the department's report, 75 percent of all passenger airplanes last year failed to arrive on time. Airplanes the previous year had a 77 percent on-time arrival rate. Additionally, there were 6.7 reports of lost or damaged baggage for every 1,000 passengers, up from 6.6 reports per 1,000 the previous year. That statistic has risen steadily since 2002. Among national carriers, Colorado Airlines and SkyClear Air had the lowest rates of mishandled baggage, while Northeast Atlantic and BTB Airlines reported the highest.

Guaranteed Sharks! - No experience necessary - No age limit - All gear and equipment provided Observe them in the open ocean from the safety of a shark cage! A metal cage with strong Plexiglas windows gives you the closest, most exhilarating shark encounter you could ever imagine! 808-222-9393 Oahu Shark Adventure ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Brendan, I think I found the perfect activity for Mr. Mendoza when he's visiting the Honolulu offices next month. Check out this Web site: This might seem a little extreme, but we all know how much Mr. Mendoza loves the ocean and scuba diving. We bring him scuba diving on every trip he takes out here. But I also know that he's fascinated by sharks. The last time he was in Hawaii he was reading a book about them and would bring them up in conversation every chance he had. So I think this would be perfect for him - something different but something he would enjoy very much. My brother-in-law went on a shark adventure through Oahu Shark Adventure when my sister and her family came to visit me last summer. He said it was very safe, very well organized, and an experience that he will never forget. So what do you think? Perhaps we can discuss the idea with the whole team on Thursday. We can find out if we have any volunteers to go on a shark-viewing adventure with Mr. Mendoza - if we're all in agreement that it's a good idea. Jung-wha 191.
