Mark's Website

That’s right! 24/7, comedian Mark Malkoff will be hanging out on an AirTran plane, travelling to about 12 cities per day, sleeping, eating — even washing himself on an airliner for thirty straight days. The beauty? He has a fear of flying.

Not only does he want to conquer his fear of flying, but he is also trying to break the Guinness record for continuous flight. And since AirTran has WiFi, Mark is able to relate his journey through his website and on his Twitter account.

His great adventure started this Monday and will go to the end of the month. I wonder if he is able to earn frequent flier miles through Airtran — I will try and ask him — stay tuned.
Update: Mark’s response: “I hope so!”
Update2: He has earned so many miles he got a big Elite airmiles card.

Wow this is insane. Insanely fun. Are they gonna give him a first class seat? What about food does he only get pretzels and a box lunch? What if the airplane has to go in for service is he allowed to transfer to another plane?


Hmmmm… I think I might want to cut myself. Or maybe someone else.

I could do this pretty easy if it was first class. If it was coach I’d kill myself after 4 hours.

I like the photos on flicker. I don’t think Mark’s comedy is that funny, but this is an interesting adventure!
