Is adventure dead?

April 24, 2010

This empty line for Iceland Air at JFK would seem to suggest as much. (Apologies for the photo quality; it was taken rather hastily under the twitchy eye of US airport security …)

Which is a real shame. Sure, conquering Ireland, smiting Wolf-coated berserkers, and breaking into bawdy song at every opportunity, might have dropped out of common practice in this unheroic age. But the least one could expect of something called “Saga Class” is flying a 200-tonne metallic Grábakur into a fiery sky laden with the ash of Eyjafjallajökull.
