Rhapsody In Blue Skies


The New York Times recently had a great story about the semi-new Rhapsody magazine, available to first-class United Airlines passengers, and the new influx of A-list literary stars that populate the magazine.

“As airlines try to distinguish their high-end service with luxuries like private sleeping chambers, showers, butler service and meals from five-star chefs, United Airlines is offering a loftier, more cerebral amenity to its first-class and business-class passengers: elegant prose by prominent novelists,” the article said.

Passengers will read stories from Pulitzer-winner Anthony Doerr, and award-winners such as Joyce Carol Oates (Black Water, Blonde) and Karen Russell (Swamplandia!)
