About Johnny Jet

I'm Johnny. I started this newsletter/website for fun. It all began when I e-mailed a few friends who traveled a lot, and wanted to earn as many miles as I did. This site is for everyone! It has become the “first stop” for thousands of travelers. Those who contribute to Johnny Jet share my vision — and I share theirs.

Travel Product of the Week: Airport Throw Pillows

Pillow

Are you an aviation lover like me? If so, I bet you’ll love these Airportag airport throw pillows (and tote bags and mugs) that use IATA codes—the three-letter codes that designate many airports around the world as defined by the International Air Transport Association—as the main design element.
