Santa Hits the Hot Spots as He Starts His Night in the Eastern Hemisphere
AirTran Airways Documents Mystical Aviator's One-Night World Tour
AirTran Airways, a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: AAI), is happy to present its first of three Satellite-based Aviation Navigation Tracking Apparatus (S.A.N.T.A) reports. The following information regarding Santa Claus' international one-night flight is based on data invented at AirTran Airways' System Operations Control (SOC) center in Orlando:
* It's a bird, it's a plane ... it's a jolly old elf and eight tiny reindeer, initially pinpointed as they cruised through the arid Australian Outback to thaw out after spending the past 364 days in the frigid North Pole. * Santa next stopped in New Zealand to meet with fitness experts, who gave the red-suited gift-giver a few diet and exercise tips. Santa is reportedly experimenting with a new health regime to eliminate the nasty rumors about his stomach shaking like a "bowl full of jelly." * With the sleigh's XM Satellite Radio tuned to "Dance Hits," Santa and his team circled around to club-hop their way through Asia en route to the original Club China. Eyewitnesses claim that reindeer Dancer and Prancer caused the biggest splash on dance floors across the continent. * Milliseconds later, tourists in fog-covered Shanghai reported seeing a faint red light streaking through the gloom. Satellite analysis confirmed that lead reindeer Rudolph's shiny nose helped the team avoid a collision with Shanghai's tallest building, the Jin Mao Tower.
Please keep an eye out for the next S.A.N.T.A. update, scheduled to cross the national wire at 3:00 p.m. EST.
