Elizabeth Banks and Sofia Vergara Will Not Be Caught Snoozing on a Plane

April 7, 2014 at 11:31 AM | by | Comments (0)

This morning, a cryptic tweet by Elizabeth Banks (Hunger Games, 30 Rock, Modern Family) highlighted what is definitely a #celebtravelproblem:

A few weeks ago, Banks' Modern Family co-star faced a similar situation while napping on set. Sofia Vergara took pains to prevent any sleeping photos of her from leaking, by placing a napkin over her face. The concept only half-worked, as her co-stars turned it into an Instagram opportunity (above) which then ended up as a DailyMail article, but at least her snoozing face literally stayed out of the picture.

Olympic Skier Bode Miller Is Renting Out His Yacht on AirBNB

March 27, 2014 at 11:16 AM | by | Comments (0)

Olympic skier Bode Miller, who added a bronze medal in Sochi to his pile of hardware, has just put his yacht up on AirBnb. The yacht, which can sleep up to 12 people, is currently docked in San Diego harbor. It goes for $3K a night, with a minimum of three nights. If you're going to get 12 people in there for three nights, it works out to $750 each, which is comparable with a penthouse room in a luxury hotel.

As for amenities? The ad lists a full kitchen, three master bedrooms and two 'bunk rooms,' an open upper deck, and use of a dinghy and a Sea-Doo. There's also the benefit of saying you slept on the same bed as one of America's most decorated Winter Olympians, natch.

Don't Look Now, But The Kardashians Might Be Entering The Travel Business

March 24, 2014 at 6:05 AM | by | Comments (0)

It kind of pains us to share this information with you, but we feel that it is our responsibility and duty to report on things such as this. It sounds like everyone’s favorite reality show family—The Kardashians—is getting into the travel business.

VH1 is reporting that the family is in the process of starting a travel company where trips will be based on the adventures they take, so we guess that means there will be vacations to places like Bora Bora and Greece. We may or may not know this from watching the show.

The Rolling Stones' Private Jet is Bigger Than Yours

March 18, 2014 at 10:12 AM | by | Comments (0)

Keep your eye out this month, Australia, as The Rolling Stones are flying around in their very own Boeing 767 painted with their lips-and-tongue logo. The 767, tail number ZS-DJI, is pretty minimal otherwise (but we bet the interior's anything but!). That's not a tiny private jet, by the way; a Delta 767, for comparison, holds just over 200 passengers.

The band landed in Perth yesterday to being their Australia tour, and today received the news that L'Wren Scott, acclaimed fashion designer and longtime girlfriend of Mick Jagger, had died.

The show must go on, however, and the Stones are all set to take their private jet around the continent for shows in Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Hanging Rock, and even down to Auckland, New Zealand. The Perth Airport Spotter's Blog has a few images of the plane in daylight.

Lena Dunham Explains Why TSA Confiscated Her Cat Keychain

March 11, 2014 at 4:06 PM | by | Comments (2)

This is a story about Lena Dunham, the TSA, and cats. The only way we could cram more Internet-friendly content into this thing is if we added some kind of Upworthy-style headline - "I Thought I Understood Airport Security; But Then I Saw This Outrageous Tape of A Celebrity Telling Her Brave Story" - but our blogging software won't let us use titles that long.

"Girls" star Lena Dunham was trying to get through airport security at LAX when she was pulled aside for what she later described to Seth Meyers as a "self-defense keychain" in the shape of a cat. Apparently it's the kind of thing where you slip your knuckles into the metal (maybe the eyes?) and then use the sharp bits (maybe the ears?) to stab another human being. The Seth Rogin Twitter feed subsequently tweeted an illustration for viewers who might have been struggling to form a mental picture.

So, Who Won BBC Top Gear's A380 Race to Sydney?

March 5, 2014 at 5:33 PM | by | Comments (0)


Above: James' final leg, from Dubai to Sydney

24 hours ago, BBC Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson and James May set off from London-Heathrow Airport with a final destination of Sydney, Australia. They flew on separate planes through different layover airports, and their arrival times were to be within thirty minutes of each other despite the incredibly huge distance traveled. The trip evolved into a Top Gear Live challenge, with the usual jokes and competitive spirit of a regular Top Gear challenge, except that it all occurred over Twitter.

Well, now that the guys have completed their #RacetoSydney journey and are on the ground Down Under, it's time to name the winner.

Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson and James May are Racing Planes to Sydney

March 4, 2014 at 6:36 PM | by | Comments (0)

UPDATE: The race has concluded, nearly 24 hours after it began. Check out who won, and how some twists made it a real nail-biter.

The sun has set for tonight in London, but it's already a bright new day over in Sydney. The miles and time zones between the two world capitals are many, and right now they're the focus of a new, live Top Gear race, as presenters Jeremy Clarkson and James May challenge each other to be the first to zip across the globe and touch down at Sydney's Kingsford-Smith International Airport.

Both are traveling on commercial flights—Jeremy's onboard Singapore Airlines SQ321 to Singapore and James is on Emirates EK6 to Dubai—and both on Airbus A380s for all legs. They're also due to share their travels on Twitter thanks to the magic of in-flight wifi, but only Jeremy seems to have gotten the hang of using the network onboard his flight, which is currently chasing James' flight across Germany.

But is this race really for BBC's Top Gear? All signs point to yes, as Jeremy notes that it is a "Top Gear race," and the video of their announcing it (posted below), was uploaded to a "Top Gear Live" channel. There's a hashtag, of course: #RacetoSydney.
