Our paths first crossed in 2001, when I exchanged a copy of my newly published book (Winning the Airfare Game) for a new Johnny Jet t-shirt. While researching for this profile, I was surprised to learn that Johnny Jet evolved from his childhood nickname, Johnny Jetski. Cool!

  1. Johnnyjet comments are usually helpful, on target and informative. He has a very down to earth way of communicating his ideas laced with simple tips like letting your cab driver know that you are familiar with the destination so that he does not take you for a long expensive ride and things of that nature like how much to tip when in Rome or wherever. He always stresses courtesy and kindness towards others, candy for Flight Attendants,etc
