I love when companies poke fun at themselves and join in the fun that is April Fools’ Day. Airlines, tourist attractions, and even airports have been posting today with some clever and funny takes. Here are some of my favorites.

Tampa International Airport (TPA)

Tampa is my home airport in the winter and I love it for its great layout, ease of getting from curb to gate, and the number of flights it offers for a smaller airport. One other standout feature is its giant flamingo statue named “Phoebe.” Apparently, Phoebe hit the road today to take in Spring Break in Tampa Bay.

Empire State Building

Sure, you can dine in the Eiffel Tower (in both Paris and Las Vegas), but what about a restaurant high atop the Empire State Building? Rainforest Cafe is apparently coming to the NYC landmark.

Frontier Airlines Launches Service from New York John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Bora Bora Airport (BOB)

Frontier Airlines announced today that its adding 2x weekly flights between New York and Bora Bora. The carrier only needs the widebody aircraft and government clearance.

Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT)

A few years ago, an image of a service pony on a plane was making the rounds online. Now, Charlotte Douglas International Airport is adding one to its security team.

Transportation Security Administration (TSA)

The government agency has announced a new line of clothing and travel gear on this April 1st.


The Finnish carrier is known for its signature blueberry juice. A change today will have flyers tasting strawberry juice while in flight in the near future.


Poor JetBlue needs a win after its big loss in the Spirit merger plan. Bringing Nathan’s hot dogs on its flights would certainly help (although that umbrella is never getting down the aisle).

Denver International Airport (DEN)

Denver is introducing a first-of-its-kind mobile screening service to get you through security before you even arrive at the airport.

Anthony’s Take: April Fools’ Day posts are fun and I love when companies join in and create some fake news. Have you seen any funny/quirky travel-related posts today?
