They also have a Simpsons channel on the TV. They have all sorts of ads and posters saying it's on Channel 41.

It was on Channel 40 on my flight. Go figure...

I'm so glad JetBlue didn't do this to their aircraft.
I have nothing against WP, but this would have made JetBlue look extremely cheap and unprofessional. Call me old-fashioned, but sometimes boring is OK!

Went to the "Kwik-E-Mart" on Olive in Burbank this morning. They had to hire security and create a waiting line. The place is stacked with crates of fresh "Homer" donuts. They taste amazing. I bought some to give to friends. No Buzz cola left.  Sad

Arnie Pie would agree with you. "Eat that, Kent!"

Just saw the movie this morning. Pretty damn funny, though not enough Mr. Burns, no Marge Family.

Crap, feel quite stupid now indeed Big grin

I thought there would have been a magic way to get them in "faster" as not one by one (or two by two)... like they do on some of those combi aircrafts, of those paletmounted seats. I've always though of "refurbishing a plane" as something that could be done overnight, but the more i think about it it seems a hard job  Smile

I was just messing with you...it is a legitimate question....one that I don't have a real answer to other than I've seen them pull from the tracks row by row.

Wow, faster than i thought anyways then. And does the plane then go back in service for 12 hours with half of the seats installed? (hope this isn't a second silly question Big grin)

No. there are a bunch on Olive, but only one Kwik-E-Mart. It's Olive and Verdugo (and Park, six way intersection).
