And here we thought the world was in the midst of an air travel crisis—not at Gatwick Airport. Now through Sunday, passengers who feel like they need a little bit of a boost in the tan department can get a free spray tan at Gatwick. "Gatwick Glow is designed to give our passengers a boost," said Kim Francis, the airport's marketing managed, who's been really busy lately. "We want them to head off on their holiday feeling great about themselves. We've partnered with St. Tropez to offer the spray tan facility so passengers can fly off already sunkissed." For those being tanned, good on ya. For those not being tanned: here's hoping you're not sat next to a sticky, gooey, freshly-sprayed person on your longhaul flight. [Daily Mail]
