If your travels are pointing towards the wonders of St Martin/Sint Maarten as it continues to recover from last years horrendous hurricane, there are worse ways to travel there, than aboard a flying rooftop bar.
Editors Note: I’m going to refer to Joon as a Rooftop bar, a fashion brand or whatever their PR original referred it to. Why? Why not. Also, if you’re wondering about the mind-set of Joon, here’s how they explained it at Passenger Experience Conference 2018.
