U.S. Airways finds a use for duct tape

For U.S. Airways, there’s good and bad. Thumbs up/Thumbs down. Cheers and jeers. The good? In January, the airline was the one that had the highest on time record of the 10 major airlines. Christopher Elliot passed on this tidbit yesterday in his blog, but chased that with some pitiful shots and details of U.S. Airways use of household items that are helping the airline continue with operations.

It reminds me a little of the vehicles in The Gambia. With mechanical know-how accompanied by a bit of chewing gum, baling wire, spit and luck, taxis ran forever.

Match the item–either duct tape or paper towels– with their use. (Yes, I know this is not much of a game, but still.)

Curtain is to______________as ____________is to airline seat. (See Elliot’s post for the pictures to prove it.)

If you happen to have some duct tape in your carry-on, an item recommended yesterday as a don’t-leave-home-without-it suggestion, perhaps you can help U.S. Airlines keep on keeping on.
