Miami Passport Agency Closed until Further Notice

In an interesting turn of events today, the State Department just announced that the Miami Passport Agency would be closed until further notice, stranding many passengers and travelers who need to leave the country. Customers who had appointments at the agency were turned away as the State Department issued a tweet stating that the agency was closed. If you had a passport to pickup or an appointment, you should call the National...

New Amazon Go Store Opening soon to the Public in Seattle

Imagine walking into a grocery store with no carts, with no cashiers, with no check out lanes. Simply walk in, grab what you need, and walk out. No money is exchanged hands, and in some cases, no words are even needed to be spoken. How can this be possible? Welcome to Amazon Go. In its 20+ years of existence, Amazon.com has gone from a small upstart online book seller to a world power in e-commerce. Never comfortable with settling for...

Breaking: United Airlines Cutting Ties with the Middle East

It’s no surprise that United Airlines, along with the other US airlines Delta and American Airlines, don’t have any love for the Middle East carriers. They’ve been in a war of words now for years, bickering over things like subsidies and unfair trade practices, etc. Well, we’ve just learned today that United is taking their feud one step further, and this one doesn’t really seem to make sense. We’ve...

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...

United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz’s Late Apology

The saying “better late than never” is what United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz effectively said today, as he went out of his way, again, to issue a third statement to the brutal passenger debacle that happened Sunday night. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you now know what’s happened with United Airlines and their ridiculous actions in removing a passenger from a Chicago to Louisville flight. In an...

United Airlines loses over $650,000,000 after passenger is beaten

Oops. Today, as of 1045am EST, United Airlines stock is down over 3.8%, which represents a drop of over $650,000,000 in market cap in just one day. Yesterday, the stock price was up slightly, but mostly because the fallout and blowback hadn’t reached the epic proportions that it did overnight. Perhaps it would have been better just to offer someone $2,000 for their ticket instead of violently beating, dragging, and abusing a...

The Internet is Trolling United on Twitter … Hard

It’s no secret United Airlines is getting a lot of negative press lately, and it really is all their fault. Two weeks ago they poorly handled a situation with two buddy pass travelers and their clothing. Today, it’s the doctor that was viciously beaten onboard and dragged off the plane after United decided he couldn’t fly in lieu of employees needing to travel. Rightfully so, the internet is trolling United on...

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...

Emotional Support Animals on airplanes are getting out of control

Emotional Support Animals provide a very needed service to thousands of people every day all over the United States. There is a small and growing population of people who are using emotional support animals as an excuse to get their pets for free on airplanes, knowing that no one on an airplane or at check in would dare question a valid disability. This allows them to sneak their pets into the cabin, avoiding the pet fees many...
