Ajira Airways

OK, so here is the boarding pass for Ajira Airways; notice the heiroglyphs.

Interesting facts:
*Ajira is Hindi for "island" or "isle"
*Ajira is Arabic for "afterlife"
*On the Ajira website there is an easter egg that links to the promotional video. In hexidecimal code, it say "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." - John 3:16 (Flight 316 to Guam)
*There is also an easter egg with this quote: "So off they started about Irish sport and shoneen games the like of lawn tennis and about hurley and putting the stone and racy of the soil and building up a nation once again and all of that." (From James Joyce's novel, Ulysses, which Ben is reading during the flight)

*There is a link for "Ajira: Adventures", that you can select as travel plans. They include.

There's no parallel to this perilous journey, rise from your paralyzed existence, rid yourself of any mental baggage and learn to walk miraculously into the curing wonders of the wilderness. Your compass and your hunting abilities will be your only friends as the hard ground carves you into a real man. Come see what the Aborigines had in mind for this ancient rite of passage and boomerang your sense of self along the way. Over the desert and through the cavernous mountains to the Eden-coasts that stretch for thousands of miles, this world is yours and yours alone. Come on the authentic Walkabout, only on Ajira Adventures. Once you take this journey, you'll never want to leave.-Posted by Antonio B. MacCutcheon

---POLAR ADVENTURE - Escape your urban surroundings to discover the bleached beasts that are native to the southern hemisphere. When you go to the ends of the earth, you’ll never have to explain yourself to anyone under 800 pounds again. Every expedition into this barren territory is like discovering it 100 years ago, so go vaulting to the pole and conquer this breathtaking icecap covered wonderland for the first time.-Posted by Antonio B.

---ISLAND ADVENTURES - Take a tropical getaway to the islands to heal what ails you. From under the canopy, where it’s dark during the day, to hopping treetops between the millions of species greeting you in the mist - the only way to embrace paradise is hands-on.
