United Airlines Accused Father of Groping His Child, Faces Lawsuit AGAIN

United Airlines sure doesn’t know how to get itself OUT of trouble, but it sure does know how to find it. In another example of flight attendants overreaching, United Airlines has issued an apology after a flight attendant called the police onto a flight because he thought a father had his hands just a little “too close” to his sons genitals. Henry Amador-Batten and husband Joel were landing in Raleigh-Durham from a...

Athens British Airways Galleries Lounge – Hold it in!

In a surprise move to no one, the BA Galleries lounge in Athens airport closed last year. It kept going on a downward spiral very, very fast. In addition to old, dirty, jaded and flat out humiliating furniture for a major airline, things didn’t really improve from then on. But one of the more surprising things about this lounge isn’t the disgustingly bad furniture or the horrible service. In fact, its lack of one basic...

Begpacking – the latest trend in white privilege!

In what seems to be the latest trend of travel white privilege run amok, apparently there has been an uptick of ‘begpacking’ around the world. For anyone who’s wondering – just like I was before I came across the term- a ‘begpacker’ is apparently mainly a traveler from a western country who decides to backpack, but since they don’t have a lot of funds to do so, they resort to begging. I learnt this after I ran into this LeMonde...

Fly the UnFriendly Skies – United Drags Passenger Off Plane

After a rather terrible PR coverage a few weeks ago, United went ahead and screwed up even more. News broke today that a passenger was forcibly removed from an overbooked flight causing outrage among the millions who have seen the videos. The issue came up after the airline, which is in the business of overselling their seats in hopes that they wouldn’t incur in any losses in case of last minute cancellations, found themselves in need...

Emirates vs Etihad: Battle of the Seats

Once again we’ll start this post agreeing that when it comes to First Class and luxury, the Gulf carries are most definitely the way to go, as they offer more than any other airline does for similar routes. From their top notch champagne and caviar service, to their on demand meals and their spacious seats and suites to the million amenities, one can’t help but feel pampered at 40,000 feet in the air. But when it comes to...
