Yes, when done properly, drinking on an airplane is the best. Emphasis on "done properly". A lot of times, though, it's not a great idea.
I've had the unfortunate knack for being stuck at airports over a dozen or so times during my life (each almost 10-12 hours plus of wait at the very minimum), so I have a few preparatory steps that make unexpected overnight stays at airports more bearable and accommodating.
How can we make flights more enjoyable, or at least tolerable? Let's start with the basics.
Not only will these airlines fly direct and provide codeshare flights, but several offer multiple flights a day for the same price as a domestic flight in the U.S. And the options keep growing.
The popular low-cost airline had the fewest complaints for March 2015 overall, at just 0.46 complaints filed with the government for every 100,000 passengers.
Gogo -- not the airlines -- have control over prices, and consumers are already accustomed to paying high rates
Jerome Bettis was a Superbowl XL champion and when he retired, he was ranked fifth all-time in rushing with 13,662 yards on 3,479 career carries. In a word, he was unstoppable... unless, that is, he came across a piece of shrimp or shellfish.
Avoid school holidays, spring break, and summer peak season (usually the month of July), and you could not only save a bundle on flights, hotels, and attractions but you may just have them to yourself!
The privilege of entering an airport lounge has always eluded me until now. They are typically not near the gate, and the food is mediocre at best. My fear of missing either a gate change or my flight has always outweighed any luxury the lounge may offer.
You can pack almonds and celery sticks to eat on the plane and stick to water when the beverage cart passes. But when it comes to staying healthy while traveling, you can't avoid a whole lot of sitting around. That is, unless you're lucky enough to pass through one of these airports.
When you're searching for flights it can be tempting to just buy the cheapest ticket. But when the cheapest ticket is from a low-cost carrier like Spirit or Allegiant, it's important to take ancillary fees into account.
You don't know me, but I've been thinking about you ever since I read about your family's experience on that United flight. I wish I had been sitting in the aisle across from you when you tried to explain to the crew about Juliette -- about how she needed to eat something hot because when she's hungry, she gets distressed.
Ten years ago today, Alaska Airlines ramp workers were removed from their jobs at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (Sea-Tac) and replaced by wor...
Before anyone starts to freak out about lightning striking them clear out of the air with the force of God, having lightning hit a plane is really no biggie.
Hidden-city ticketing is both extremely common... and fraught with risk. You can see significant savings (we found flights with up to $200 discounts after all), but you could also chance having your flight cancelled altogether.
At the airport, I took a deep breath and approached the counter. I handed over my ticket, and the woman's eyes grew wide. She called over a coworker, and they spoke Flemish at 100 mph. I started to reach for my credit card.
