I was able to get to the login page - but after typing the username and password and clicking the login button - nothing happens.

IE 7 Beta 3 shows a Javascript error... Firefox doesn't show an error but doesn't do anything.

Anyone else having problems?

The only thing that happened for me was that the picture of the plane became a slide show of maybe 8-10 different pics of the plane. Is that all that is supposed to happen?

Works "real good"

Thinking of passing the link to R, with the question, "How soon do you think we'll be taking the kids on one of these...and to which of our 17 favemost destinations?"

Works with Safari. It seems like a cool plane. I'm not too sure how they are expecting to "eliminate jetlag" but we shall see.
