You have to give the folks over at Air New Zealand credit for their creativity, outgoing personalities and boldness. To see what I mean, here's a behind-the-scenes video of their staff (pilots, flight attendants, baggage handlers, gate agents ...) getting their naked bodies painted to look like uniforms for a nothing-to-hide TV commercial. BTW: Air New Zealand is one of my favorite airlines and I did a feature of their incredible business class a couple years ago.

- Location: Los Angeles
I used to be afraid to fly (long story). Moved to California from Connecticut at 21-- that's when I conquered my fear. In college I started dating a bona fide princess from Hong Kong. She was accustomed to flying Biz Class. I had ONLY flown coach -- and I had never been overseas. When she invited me home, I couldn't let the opportunity slip by. I (okay, my dad) bought the seat next to her from a consolidator. I picked the right time to have my first out-of-coach experience. WOW! What a difference-- A nice phat seat, some hot towels, a little sorbet to clean the palate, non-stop food, beverages and movies. When I returned to the U.S. I felt like a new man. I started working as a college recruiter. While traveling my 26-state territory on a tight budget, I learned traveling in style on a budget was possible. I started a weekly newsletter and JohnnyJet.com to share my tips. Three months later USAToday made JohnnyJet.com website of the week and now it's my full time job.
