If you've traveled by airplane before, you've probably encountered at least a few of these annoying passengers. (Either that or you're one of them!) Did your pet peeve personality make our list? Do any of these personality traits sound a little too familiar? Read on to find out!
Style is subjective, but wrinkle resistance, durability, and comfort aren't. So we think you'll like these top-quality travel clothes, shoes, scarves, and swimsuits just as much as we do.
I consulted David Perry, a fellow traveler writer and friend of mine who has even less space to work with. Since his laptop goes with him as the personal item, he has to pack his camera into his carry-on, leaving him with a nook just 14 inches wide, nine long, seven deep. This guy gets creative.
Inclement weather can affect air travel in any season, even on the clearest of days. Whether it's high winds, rain, sleet or snow, each year brings a slew of delays that could severely cramp your travel plans.
I recently had the pleasure of taking an overseas trip, and enjoyed the flight so much that when I got home, I wanted another. I talked to some friends, and after we all lamented that another vacation wasn't in the budget for any of us, I decided to host a plane trip right in my house.
Feeling a bit worn out by winter? Then the time is right for a peaceful getaway, where snow shovels and polar vortexes are but a distant dream.
Travel fears may start small, but they can take over and quash the very spirit that inspires us to explore the world. Here are ways to manage some of the most common fears associated with travel, from flight phobias to the specter of food poisoning.
It's awesome. I only got to fly on her once. The staff is amazing and after flying on AF1 you will NEVER want to fly commercial again.
Hey, airline bigwigs, could we put the seats just a little closer, and maybe make them smaller? In fact, why don't we just offer a cheaper ticket if you sit on someone's lap the whole way? The person holding you gets an even lower price.
It seems these days that the only way to fly fee-free is by wearing a week's worth of clothes and standing the entire flight. But what if the script was flipped, and you could charge the airlines fees?
Route expansions may not seem like exciting news, but they're a bigger deal than you probably think. Why? Because they often spark competition between airlines and drive down fares on multiple carriers. If your New Year's resolution involves traveling more, it may be time to give one of these new routes a try.
The new year brings the promise of 365 new days to plan trips and see the world. And 2015 is shaping up to be rather interesting for travelers. From wellness retreats to ultra-affordable luxury, here are the burgeoning travel trends we're most excited about.
Confession: I used to travel with a baby-blue JanSport backpack that I'd had since sixth grade. It had highlighter doodles, it was thoroughly unfashionable, and once, an elderly man at the airport told me to stay in school and study hard (I was 24.)
My local gym opens at 5 a.m. or I can just go for a short run in my neighborhood, first thing. (I used to think I didn't have time for a workout on a travel day, now I won't go anywhere by plane without a good workout first.) It keeps me calm throughout the day.
Yet airports around the globe are increasingly boasting an impressive range of fun activities and luxe amenities to help ease the stresses of travel--or at least entertain us while we're in transit. Here's a sampling of things you can do that we think will prove way more fun than sudoku.
Just took a routine flight from Chicago to Boston. No rain. No snow. Only a 30-minute delay going there due to a "typographical error on the pilot's checklist." (What on earth is that?) So why am I complaining? Well, air travel has become a metaphor for the overall lack of caring and civility we see around us every day.
