Babyshambles Banned from easyJet

In the growing list of musicians banned from airlines, the Babyshambles are now banned from flying easyJet.  Why?  Glad you asked.  Lead singer, former boyfriend of Kate Moss, and heroin addict Pete Doherty was suspected of shooting up in an easyJet bathroom on a flight to Spain.  The airline claims that the singer (or "singer" as it were) spent an inordinate amount of time in the bathroom and that a bloody syringe was also found in said bathroom.  A police spokesman, however, says that no syringe was found.

New Service to Africa

Good news for people trying to travel to Africa:  two announcements yesterday from airlines adding service to the continent.

Delta's application to fly from Atlanta to Johannesburg (with a stop in Dakar, Senegal) was approved yesterday.  Service begins December 4th.

EasyJet announced that it will fly its first route to Africa with service from London to Marrakesh, Morocco, beginning in July.  (The airline also announced service to Istanbul and Rijeka, Croatia, where I went on vacation last year and can highly recommend).  Fares start at about $45 each way.
