The New Travel Gadget that is Changing My Life

Travel during the holiday season (and really any time for that matter) can be a chore, and many of us like to retreat into our little world while traveling. I was on a Delta Airlines flight a couple of months ago and saw the passenger next to me plug something into the seat back video. Intrigured, I asked him more about it, and he let me know that it was a wireless travel adapter. It transmitted the sound from the seat back monitor...

Should Flight Crew and Airport Employees be Allowed to Do This?

Airports are getting busier and the security lines are getting longer. It’s no secret that travel has become a stressful endeavor, and many of us just want to get to the airplane with as little delay as possible. This also includes the airport staff and flight crew that take you to your destination safely.  Many airports have Known Crew checkpoints where crew and employee can undergo an expedited screening.

British Airways now offers Unlimited Wifi to Select Fliers

Staying connected on a long haul (or even a short haul) flight is becoming more and more crucial.

Male Airport VIP Leeli Lounge

Mention the Maldives and images of pristine turquoise blue waters come to mind. Overwater bungalows with direct jump-in access to the water and romantic sunsets are commonplace in this island paradise. While it’s on almost everyone’s wish list, getting there can be a challenge. Flights are often ridiculously expensive and once you DO get to the islands, a barrage of expensive hotels with overpriced meals await. Never mind the flight...

Hey United Airlines! You’re Drunk, Please, Just Stop.

When you’re driving down the road and you see a car accident, let’s all be honest, you slow down to look. We’re mesmerized by the accident, and even though often times it is gruesome and horrible, we stop, slow down, and look. That seems to be what’s going on here at United Airlines with their new launch of Premier Status and their Premier Upgrade “plan” for 2020. And I’m using the word plan...
