WATCH: Can Airline Bathrooms Really Get Any Smaller?
TravelPulse founder Mark Murphy appeared on "CBS News Live" and talked travel Wednesday, discussing the shrinking bathroom sizes on new Boeing aircraft.
Boeing is interested in putting more seats on planes to increase revenue for the airlines, but is it really possible to shrink the bathrooms any further? Murphy gives his take on Boeing's plans.
They also talk about JetBlue and their Mint Class expansion. Mint Class, which is a first-class, lay-flat, partitioned-off room product, is being expanded to fly from Boston to select locations like Barbados in addition to New York out to San Francisco, Los Angeles and Barbados.
Why Barbados? Because it's a perfect fit for the high-end traveler that seeks out the Mint treatment.
The last thing they talk about is the new crowd-sourced bus service, Skedaddle. The start-up has partnered with bus companies to offer up crowdsourced bus trips. The first five people of every trip get their tickets for only $5. The next 10 get 10 percent off of their ticket price and the remainder pay full price.
The cool thing is anyone can start a route at any time. As long as 15 people book a ticket, it goes.
Check out Mark's take below, and a bonus clip of "Tommy Boy" to start things off:
