The store opening was a first-class travel experience where four stewardess (minus Britney Spears) and the captain greeted us with a top-notch song and dance number. If only they do this in real life, tourism will probably boost up even more here in our country.
The most exciting part: The raffle draw wherein five guests (I was one of the five to be called) took home some of Flight 001's premium products.
This one-stop travel store was conceived in 1998 aboard Air France flight 023 somewhere between New York and Paris. John Sencion and Brad John, two business travelers who had spent far too much time preparing for their trip, envisioned a travel store as streamlined as flight itself. Luckily for travelers of every kind, their mid-air detour resulted in a jetsetter's dream: an all inclusive, retro-modern retail experience that satisfies the frequent traveler's every need.
