He's Got a Ticket to Ride

Rank has its privilege. Carnival Corp CEO Arnold Donald got to go for a special ride last week. Carnival brought the new Carnival AirShip (a/k/a blimp) to Miami for the Miami inaugural of Carnival Horizon. As part of the Miami launch, it circled the ship a number of times, entertaining passengers and Miami residents. How often do you actually see a blimp right above you, let alone one painted like a cruise ship?

How often do you get to ride in one? While the AirShip was visiting Miami as part of its own inaugural tour of the Southeastern United States, Carnival CEO Arnold Donald got to go for a ride. During the flight, the pilot took him over local landmarks and beaches at altitudes of up to 1,000 feet.
