Johnny shares thoughts on Twitter (@JohnnyJet), his blog, and Facebook.

Johnny Jet has been featured over 1,800 times in major publications, including USA Today, Time, Fortune and The New York Times, and has appeared on ABC, CBS, CNBC, MSNBC, NBC, FOX News Channel, and PBS. JohnnyJet.com has been named “one of the top best money-saving web sites for travel” by Budget Travel Magazine, while the L.A. Times calls it “one of the top 10 essential travel resources on the internet.” Outside Magazine said that Johnny Jet has one of the world’s best dream jobs. Indeed.

Our paths first crossed in 2001, when I exchanged a copy of my newly published book (Winning the Airfare Game) for a new Johnny Jet t-shirt. While researching for this profile, I was surprised to learn that Johnny Jet evolved from his childhood nickname, Johnny Jetski. Cool!

Thank you, Johnny, for sharing a few thoughts with McCool Travel and may you have countless more memorable travel adventures!
