The Morning Shave

People say vacations are a pressure cooker for relationships. Is that really true?

I think that every couple needs to travel extensively before getting married. It provides an opportunity to spend quality time together and to get to know how the other person reacts in different situations. You’ll see how they treat others, handle stress, and adjust when plans go awry. Anna and I traveled 2-3 weekends a month while we dated. And I think that time together helped us form a solid foundation for our marriage.

Mesa Airlines Deal With United Latest Fallout of U.S. Pilot Shortage.

Mesa Airlines kicked American Airlines to the curb and partnered with United Airlines. It’s almost like an episode of Jerry Springer. Mesa is doing the right thing by increasing pay for its pilots, but American wouldn’t cover the extra salary. Losing access to Mesa’s jets will be trouble for American’s access to smaller airports in the short term, but they’ll figure it out eventually.

Should You Ditch Your Travel Companion If They Don’t Have TSA PreCheck?

I love hanging out with my friends and family, but I’m not waiting in a long line if I don’t have to. Besides, it’s not just the line but the more invasive search of your bag and body is also annoying. So many credit cards reimburse TSA PreCheck application fees, so it’s easy to join for no additional money. And, if you have multiple cards with this benefit, you can always do them a favor and sign them up with your credits.

Major Storms May Affect Travel During the Busy Holiday Week — What to Do If Your Flight Gets Canceled.

Big-time storms are coming this week. If you don’t need to travel, I recommend staying home where it’s safe and warm. Even if you’re traveling to destinations not affected by the weather, your flight could be. Check with the airlines before you leave for the airport and have a Plan B in place in case your flight is delayed or canceled. Hopefully, you paid using a credit card with travel protections that will reimburse you for flights, hotels, rental cars, etc that cannot be canceled or are affected by the delays. And, whatever you do, don’t check a bag… because, even if you make it to your destination, there’s no guarantee that your checked bag will.

A visual breakdown of what happened when turbulence rocked a Hawaiian Airlines flight.

Airlines always tell passengers to remain seated with their seatbelts fastened when they’re not moving about the cabin. Even when the pilot turns off the fasten seatbelt sign, you should still keep it on… and here’s why. Thirty-six passengers were hurt on a recent Hawaiian Airlines flight, including one knocked unconscious, that dropped 800 feet in 12 seconds due to turbulence. Be careful out there people.
