The Morning Shave

Lyft has a new guarantee that will get you to the airport on time this holiday season.

Getting a rideshare to the airport is a good way to save on parking fees. However, getting an early-morning Uber or Lyft can be a challenge. This is especially true if you live in a more suburban or rural area. When you book a ride with Lyft, they’ll give you $100 Lyft credits if your ride is more than 10 minutes late. And you can schedule up to 30 days in advance! If you haven’t already used Uber or Lyft, use my referral links to get a special prize.

Delta CEO addresses United’s boarding process change: ‘Just boarding people’ is fastest.

Ed Bastian is throwing shade at United Airlines’ latest attempt to speed up the boarding process. He’s been in his own hot water lately with how he devalued Delta’s loyalty program, credit cards and lounge access. Ed even had to backtrack his proposed changes because they upset customers so much.

The 20 most annoying travel habits revealed – from queue-cutting to hair-draping and overindulging at 30,000ft.

When we travel, we may get annoyed with other travelers, but at least we can get off the plane when we land. Flight attendants have to deal with unruly and disgusting passengers multiple times a day. Take a look at this list and make sure you’re not one of these passengers that’s causing problems for the crew or other travelers.

Denmark Proposes New Flight Tax for Departing Passengers.

If you’re thinking of visiting Denmark in 2025, you may encounter some extra fees. The Danish government is looking to add fees for departing passengers to fund its transition to green travel. Fees start at $9 for European flights, $34 for medium-distance flights and $56 for long-distance flights. However, you won’t owe these fees if you’re transiting the airport.

Consumer Complaints About Airlines Skyrocket.

I’m not sure if airline service is getting worse, we’re more intolerant of bad behavior, or we’re more willing to express our frustration. Or maybe it’s a combination of the three? With airlines cramming more passengers into planes, the frustration is sure to happen. Passenger complaints doubled over last year and have continued to climb.
