(April Fools) Introducing VesselGeeks

Our team now likes boats, ships, and even big barges! With that, we are changing our name and brand to VesselGeeks starting next week.

VesselGeeks will be one of the first blogs of its kind in that we will report on all the latest boat news! And no, for you #AvGeeks out there, seaplanes don’t count. With this rebrand, we will seek to start a new community: #VEGeeks. Additionally, we will be sharing all of our #BoatSpotter pics!

You might ask, why we would make the sudden switch from airplanes to boats? Simple! Vessels are much slower and easier to track, even if we have to wait at the port for a whole day to #BoatSpot one vessel.

Sail boats and other types of boats are pretty cool, but we love the big stuff. Ships that do not exceed 20 knots are amazing. Unlike airplanes, boats are easy to take pictures of because you do not have to worry about the shutter at all. And hey, if the captain is moving slow enough, you may be able to grab that perfect shot!

Starting early next week, the whole site, including the domain, header, social media, etc., will be boat themed. This comes after much extensive review and planning by our team.

So, put on the half-buttoned Hawaiian themed shirt, tan socks, white shorts, and boating shoes; it is time to sail! (And don’t forget to grab your camera for #BoatSpotting.)

APRIL FOOLS! We still love airplanes.

AirlineGeeks.com began in February, 2013 as a one-man (er… teenager, rather) show. Since then, we’ve grown to have 20 active team members, and yes, we’re still growing. Some of us are looking to work in the aviation industry as professionals when we grow older. Some of us are still trying to decide what we want to do. That’s okay though, because we’re all here for the same reason: we love the airlines. We’re the youngest team of airline industry journalists out there.
