The launch of Pet Airways proves that pet lovers know no downturn in taking care of their furry friends, but even when they leave them behind, they do so in style: A post on the L.A. Times' "California Consumer" blog predicts that based on last year's numbers, Americans will spend more than ever boarding their pets when they're on vacation. That's right, they're still going on vacation for long enough that they can board their pets! While the foreclosed have no homes, pampered pets have two.
So where are all these creature comfort providers going? On Carnival cruises, it seems! The world's biggest cruise company won the second-quarter earnings report by posting a smaller than expected sales loss for the quarter that included the swine-flu scare.
Despite a minor outbreak of H1N1 on one of its South Pacific routes last month, Carnival managed to keep occupancy up by discounting tickets while reaping the advantages of lower fuel costs over last year.
25 guests witnessed the re-hitching of Brady and BŁndchen, who left her house to prep for the wedding separately at the Milarepa Hotel and Hotel Flor Blanca in the city of Santa Teresa. Guests included Brady's 1-year-old son, the source of controversy in BŁndchen's recent Vanity Fair profile in which she said she felt like his mother (news to his real mother, Bridget Moynahan) and Patriots owner Robert Kraft. Paparazzi who managed to figure out the date and location of the ceremony were fired on by security guards hired for the occasion.
There are competing schools of thought on whether destination weddings will take a major hit or a minor hit during this recession. Bridal Guide magazine predicted destination weddings would be up 14 percent this year despite the downturn because they often involve fewer guests (and thus lower overhead). But AdAge found the average price of a wedding in the U.S. dropped in 2008 for the first time in 17 years, indicating that many brides are not only actively looking to cut costs, they're actually doing it.

The bride, 28, donned a form-fitting ivory lace strapless gown with a trumpet skirt, scalloped edges, long train and a floor-length veil with attached handmade satin roses and attached satin headband, all by Dolce & Gabbana. Her three dogs also wore matching Dolce & Gabbana floral lace collars.
When we reported on Friday about New England Patriot Tom Brady's private jet proposal to model girlfriend Gisele Bundchen, we were fixated on whether the gesture was splashy and sweet or tacky and tired. But while the private jet definitely took off, the wedding might not have: Brady relatives have emerged to say they didn't hear anything about an engagement from the quarterback.
"Nobody told me," Tom Brady, Sr. told The Boston Globe. "We talked to him and thereís nothing to say." The couple were also allegedly spotted out in Boston, not wearing wedding rings--although they could be faking! Maybe they were just peeved that Brady's plans reached the paparazzi before they were able to tell everyone.
On the bright side, if Brady's next surgery is going to take him out for the 2009 season as well, as The Sporting News says, he'll have plenty of time to actually propose and even get involved in the wedding.

While a crowd of photogs swarmed sidelined Patriots QB Tom Brady as he arrived at Gisele Bundchen's New York townhouse on Christmas Eve, they certainly weren't lurking when he proposed late that night: Brady filled a private jet with white roses, stocked the bar with champagne and took off from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey for Boston before popping the question to his girlfriend of about two years.
While we can understand why a gal might want to marry Brady, we're still amazed that anyone would agree to fly to Boston at this time of year. Point that private jet south, lovers!

Not listening! Gisele Bundchen has done enough real-life photo shoots to know that she's being photographed constantly, which is why Tom Brady's girlfriend rocks the monochromatic look at Charles de Gaulle airport. And don't forget the shades!
Now that Brady's out for the season, we would have expected him and Bundchen to hole up and stay away from angry Pats fans. But she was recently spotted in Los Angeles with his son, who lives with Brady ex Bridget Moynahan... who probably called the cameramen on her ex-boyfriend's new fling.
We see the makings of a kooky romantic comedy here!

Looks like we have identified one of the beach locations for the 2007 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition--Reserve Naturelle Barine Saint-Barthelemy. As of late last week, both Gisele Bundchen and Adriana Lima were being heavily photographed on that particular St. Barth's beach.
If you are in the area, be sure to hit up Le Tom Hotel for beach chairs and umbrellas, as long as you run up a nice lunch tab their they are usually accommodating. The umbrella is key, you don't want to be red as a lobster when you finally get your chance to talk with the supermodels.
For more St. Barthelemy beach pics of Gisele Bundchen and Adriana Lima just read more.
Looks like Gisele Bundchen is back for a second airport photo shoot, her first was in Brazil back in August.
Gisele was recently hanging out in St. Barts airport (SBH) getting ready, what looks like, a WinAir puddle jumper.
The WinAir flighst from SBH will get you to Anguilla, Nevis, Saba, Statia and St. Kitts for about $200--Giselle in a green dress not included.
And yes, you can charter WinAir flights.
Someone needs to tell Gisele Bundchen about the airport photo shoot craze. Gisele looks sulky and bothered while walking through Aeroporto Cumbica compared to recent airport photo shoot subjects Adrianna Lima and Bai Ling. Ok, yes, getting a camera shoved in your face while you are waiting to board a 14 hour red eye to LAX can be irritating, but she may have been better served to at least fake a smile.
We didn't think Gisele was the type to tote a tiny pet on board, let alone a guitar and a travel neck pillow--she looks like a high maintenance traveller for sure. See how much we learn during these airport photo shoots?
São Paulo's international airport, Aeroporto Cumbica, is in the suburb of Guarulhos, a 45-minute drive from Centro. This is Brazil's largest airport but only has two runways. A third is under construction and should open later this year, but you know how airport construction goes.
