Fish has been covering aviation and transportation security issues since September 15, 2001, after walking away from Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan following four days of documenting the worst aviation security disaster in history.

Having spent more than a decade-and-a-half as a full-time photojournalist, Fish now divides his time between building social media and social commerce strategies and solutions for global travel brands, along with researching aviation and transportation security.

Growing up at the end up New York's JFK International Airport's Runway 4R/22L probably explains Fish’s enjoyment of watching planes fly overhead. When not working or shooting photos, Fish can be found playing with (and cleaning up after) his three kids, chasing his dogs, standing in the kitchen cooking, monitoring radios public safety and federal radios and of course cheering for the Red Sox.

You can find Fish on Twitter at @flyingwithfish …and … join Fish every Thursday at 3:30pm EST as he hosts the weekly #TNI #Travel Chat on Twitter.

In Flight Service At 30,000 feet … how passengers see it

Airline passengers often complain that airlines offer them increasingly few options in flight and that airlines are disconnected from passengers needs.   Whether or not airlines are in fact how passengers perceive them is not relevant … because sometimes we just need to laugh at the whole travel experience.


I have to credit Jon Norris, Executive Director of Important Things That Have To Get Done at the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX) for bringing this video to my attention.


Sit back, relax, put your tray table down and decide whether you’d like Beef or Cow for your meal.


Happy Flying!

  1. Thank you!!!! This so needed to be written!

  2. This reminds me of a flight attendant who blogged about changing the wording of the inflight meal options depending on how many there are left (to make them sound more or less appetizing)… Just genius when you think about it!
