Santa Departing From DFW International Tomorrow

Rick Seaney runs FareCompare.com, a web site that compares airfares (go figure). To prove that last-minute holiday travel can be done on the cheap (when you use his site, anyway), Rick’s sending a staff writer–err, Santa–to all contiguous 48 states in 12 days on 66 flights–all of which were booked less than 14 days ago using online outlets. Rick’s attempting to break the records for the shortest amount of time and money used to make the trip. Keep up with Santa’s travels on his video blog, where he’ll also share travel-booking tips, highlight the biggest travel industry news stories from the past year, and expose the good/bad/ugly of holiday traveling. Godspeed, Santa.

    I’ll put money down that he gets bumped from at least five flights before he finishes the journey. And he’ll be strip-searched at least once.

    Actually, I think he’s hoping for it. The strip-search part. Local note: turns out Grumpy Santa is an SMU and PSHS alum.

    According to his itinerary, it appears Santa will not be departing “DFW International.” He’s leaving from DAL, that’s Dallas Love Field. Makes sense since he’s flyin’ Southwest.
