Hollywood star John Travolta promised yesterday his flight crew would help Hong Kong's sluggish economy by going on a shopping spree. The 48-year-old - who piloted his Boeing 707 into Chek Lap Kok as part of a world tour - said he would go shopping today before heading for Tokyo on the next leg of his journey. 'I am with about 22 people and they will put a good dent in the economy . . . Tomorrow is my day to go out to shop,' he said, describing Hong Kong as one of his favourite cities. The Face/Off and Pulp Fiction star flew the ex-Qantas jet into the SAR from Singapore on Monday as part of the airline's Spirit of Friendship tour that covers 13 cities in 10 countries. The tour is partly intended as a positive response to the September 11 attacks. 'I was thinking maybe [I will buy] some suits . . . My friend is decorating his home and his wife wants something with a Chinese motif. I may buy some decorations for his house. Otherwise, I'm just going to improvise,' he said. Travolta flew into the territory accompanied by his wife, Kelly Preston, his son Jett, 10, and daughter Ella, two. The 30-year-old jet, which he bought from Qantas four years ago, is named 'Jett Clipper Ella'.
